Any folks in the business?.....
Can you please arrange in cost order the following pebble surfaces on the market now?
Pebble Tec, Pebble Fina, StoneScapes, QuartzScapes, and Beadcrete, plus the myriad WetEdge products...
I thought that I and DH were all set with our choice of PebbleSheen for our pool remodel. I now hear from DH that he has been talking to pool builder about "adding" Beadcrete-like cobalt blue beads to our PebbleSheen. PB might have told DH that this was a new PTec product. I called PTec--no such thing.
Nevermind that there will no longer be a warrantee from PTec on this, I'm thinking that the PB might be substituting something else for the PebbleSheen in the mix. DH has seen sample of pretty, shiny blue beads in the white mix, and is in love with it. All I've seen so far is a photo on a computer; it's looking to me like something in my Pentair NPT (National Pool Tile?) catalog on the page with the quartScapes and Beadcrete.
Should we be paying the same for this new concoction as we were contracted for the PebbleSheen? How would we ever know if we were getting actual PebbleTec product, even if they chose to throw in some extra blue beads?
I am grateful for your help and opinions.
