I live about 10 min outside of Austin and am struggling to make a decision on the surface to use. The chipout is underway and the pressure is mounting. The PB has one I can see but its 50 min away in Lakeway. Wondered if any fellow pool nerds were closer in and had Minipebble. My wife is concerned it is too rough and is leaning towards Hydrazzo. I am pushing for Quartz because its not as expensive as Hydrazzo and should be good enough as that is what we had before. We had a ton of mottling in the Quartz finish before and I think the MiniPebble has way less mottling and more of a consistent look. I have read quite a bit no TFP about people thinking the minipebble is fine and not too rough. Just cant pull the trigger with getting my feet wet.

Thanks!

Just curious who you used for the replaster and if you’d recommend them? We are new pool owners in West Austin and need to resurface our pool this fall/winter.

Also curious what finish you went with and if you’re pleased?

Thanks!

We are in the midst of a build. I am using H&H and to be honest have not been very happy with the management of the process. They do tend to back end for PB in Austin so I am not sure if its just because I am a homeowner or what but. The stone mason was lower quality and I had to ride his butt. I had to visit 3 stones yards to help them select matching coping and rock. They are nice guys but I have had to be way too involved.
