Our pebble was sprayed Friday. Saturday they came and acid washed and did some "patching" on some areas. We put in a sandy colored pebble and there were several places where the fat was more concentrated than the pebble. They actually chipped out the fat spots and pebble reapplied or patched. That took all day Saturday and Saturday night we started filling the pool.
It's Sunday night, we have the pool filled and the pump running to circulate the water. We've turned on the lights and there are a few spots where they chipped out the fat and didn't fill them or the fill didn't stick and now we have these gouges in the bottom of the pool. Also, at some of the patch spots, there is a streak of lighter pebble surface running from the patch to the deep end of the pool.
Also, at our bench in the deep end of the pool, they had two areas of the pebble that didn't stick right away during the spray and they kept going back over it again and again. You can see these two areas on the bench wall.
So, my questions are these:
Are the few gouge marks acceptable?
Is the patchy look on the wall acceptable?
Will the streaky, lighter looking pebble areas running down from the patches begin to blend as the chems get worked out and as we continue brushing?
I do accept that this is a human applied product and will not be perfect. I understand that there are imperfections in a product like this. We used a lighter pebble and these items seem to show more than they do on our friends' pools that are darker pebble.
Also, will these gouges impair the integrity of the pebble product?
Are these things that everyone has and we just see them more in the lighter pebble?
And....the water is pretty icky green right now. Our contractor says that once the chems are set up that will clear out and the color will be prettier.
I'm really kind of sick to my stomach over this. We DIY'd everything except the pebble application and everything looks incredible. Are we being too picky on the pebble's final application?
Thanks for the input.
