Ok, I would save that. Also keep an eye on it when they pressure test the lines. If its going to be under a patio or some other hard to reach area, I may still push to get it replaced.

SWEET!!! That looks great! Have you started bonding with it yet? aka watering it to help slow down the curing.

It is time for your set of links! The first set is all about what to do and ask about to get a great plaster job. The second set is all about how to care for your pool after you get the plaster.

Plaster links:
Ten Guidelines for Quality Pool Plaster Best one of all
All Plaster Finishes Should Last 20 Years
Not All Color Pigments are Good for Pools How to pick a good color for plaster.

Now is also a good time to ask what test kit your PB will be providing so we can fill in any holes.

Thanks for the links Kim!!

The pool company is handling the bonding daily for us since we don't live there yet.

They wont be plastering the pool until right before we close, so mid June, but they will continue with the decking, masonry, etc. So there will be a little progress over the next several weeks.

Agreed. Is that a Britton Home? We looked at them and really liked those back windows and they were very configurable. That will be great for the pool.

Thank you guys! The house is custom by Jeff Pfeifer Homes. We designed the floor plan exactly how we wanted it. Fun but stressful picking every little detail! That curved wall of windows will be our master bedroom! We wanted to have a great view of the pool! The sliding doors are 16' wide stacking doors that when stacked up will have an 11' opening! These were a must for us as we wanted to open the inside to the outside. I appreciate the comments on the house (and waterline tile). The pool should start moving along again next month and finish up in early June as we are supposed to close on June 12th!

Over the last two days they installed the equipment, plumbing and built the base of the grill island. The equipment pad was poured oversized in case we decide to install a heater/chiller in the future. When I left they were getting ready to put the stone on the grill and they expect to begin the coping tomorrow.

Here are a few pics:

Stopped by today and they got the coping installed, the veneer on the outdoor kitchen on, they started the wall, and completed all the electrical runs.

LOVE it!!! So pretty!!!

When will you move into the house? Are you close enough to the house to go to it at least twice a day to brush the new plaster once it gets put in?
