Horrible plaster job?

Hey guys first time poster here looking for some advice on the pool I’m having built. This morning the PB had the plaster guys here and after they finished I can’t say that I’m happy with the results. Called the superintendent and he assured me tomorrow when they acid washed it would look much better. I attached some pictures to see what you guys thought. Thanks ahead of time.

I went and dug into the archives to see a pic of my pool post pebble and pre-acid wash pool and it looked the same, very blotchy. Looked much better after the wash and even better once filled.

Yeah, wait until the acid wash. You are seeing extra plaster on the surface that will come off during the acid wash. My acid was process was semi-involved. The guy acid washed it and then pressure washed it also. Took a few hours. It still looked a tiny bit splotchy after that but once water was in it, it was beautiful and uniform.
