Good choice on the step. I’m going to ask them to add one to our spa when it’s time. We changed the plan at the last minute and I forgot to have them add it. Hopefully it won’t be a problem.

Remember you'll lose a few inches once the plaster is on top of the shotcrete.

Be aware that we've had a couple of new pools have problems with the alalone- its a natural product so it "decomposed" some and made brown stains in the plaster.

What else can I use for sparkle? The blue glass makes it too blue for my liking.

Do they do white glass?
Have you seen this? It is pricey but very cool 😎. My son wanted us to get it. I wanted darker colors for the step trim so I didn’t get it, but if I had wanted white or another lighter color I definitely would have gotten it. Using this in a 4 square diamond would look good. Sparkle during the day and glow at night.

I read the thread that showed the abalone staining. Gross! I’ll contact the pool builder and check the cost of adding the glass beads instead. Thank you for saving me from having to put $100 in the swear jar.
