Hi everyone,
I did a search for this and read some posts but I wanted to get a general consensus on adding abalone shells to pebble finishes? I read some cases where it stained the pool and def don’t want that but our PB is offering it at no charge and says it really makes the pool sparkle. Pros and cons? Anyone’s experiences? Thanks in advance!

I've heard it sparkles but I've read two reports from pool owners about the staining issue as the shells degrade. This is a real problem since you can't easily remove them once in. Free is nice....but will he fix the finish under a written guarantee if they stain? Does the pebble finish warranty cover abalone as an extra?
