    Pool Finish and Color Viewing Room...TFP Member Sound Off

    So sorry this is happening to you. I have an enormous amount of empathy as I have been through this experience over the last year. Keep in mind I am not an expert on pools but according to experts I consulted regarding colored pigments, the answer to your question is Yes; they say ALL colored...

I interpreted it as a greater writer because I adore your stream of consciousness along with the humor and gifts of experience...when he wrote "Classic @Dirk … no one, and I mean NO ONE, can create a “stream of consciousness” post...

    PS French Grey or Blue Granite

    Spoke to a previous neighbor yesterday who said he did the original pebbletec moonlit grey and he said it does have a lot of variation based on time of day, shading etc. He likes it. We just replaced our NPT midnight blue which had the pool showing partial lagoon and green whenever there was...

    Thank you. Yes, our water tile installer is an amazing gentleman and was kind enough to lay out the Lighstreams with high level diligence. He even came by to see the plastering being done just because he too was excited! Ellen M

    Thank you so much. Short of buying a house & putting 2 kids through private colleges, the pool build/yard has been the most expensive project we've ever taken on; hence we have so gratitude to an ethical pool builder as well as learned from the first go around. Although the darker colors are...

    I am so sorry that happened for you. The PebbleTec does appear to be somewhat soother in my opinion. I am glad otherwise your son has been enjoying his swim and feet get exfoliating! Ellen M

    Thank you for your support through this and your enjoyment of the end result. I am so glad that NPT no longer had the Zanzibar white mini rock because the Pebble Sheen Arctic White is smoother than the NPT rocks. The PT installers made a comment as well and said the glass beads are always a joy...

    You bet! I am unbelieveably grateful. I was just talking about it and she said I would be glad to do it, I am needing an art project! She actually offered to be able for hire. I watched her do some and I knew I could not help when she started chatting about angels, shapes, sizes, colors..and...
