    Finally, a desirable solution... PICS.

    The History:

    pb-has-offered-new-reason-for-pool-stains-what-now-t16875.html

    Hello all,

    I wanted to post an update on the final resolution with the PB. After extensive research, endless communications with members on this forum, and persuasive communications with the PB, I hopefully have come to a desirable solution for my pool. I have posted the above links for the history of my dilema. In the end the PB agreed to replaster the pool with Pebble Tec in order to resolve the issue. Here are pics of the process and final results.

    Thank you for the replys. Pices, I just viewed your pool build pics, very nice pool. I like the Pebble Tec color you chose. I want to go swim in my pool but the temp here has dropped so naturally the water has as well.
