New to the Central Valley California, moved from Ontario Canada during a pandemic...crazy. Our pool in Canada was a vinyl liner style...not sure why, most pools in Canada are liner style. We moved to Hanford California, just under a years a go, purchased a newly built home, and the first thing we did was contact a PB. I did some research on what finish to use, the PB was pushing plaster, I wanted something more long term, everyone I talked to and read online... other then the PB, said go with Pebble Tec, The cost was just under $9,000.00usd, over plain plaster. So we went with pebble Tec sheen, aqua Blue. We figured that this was going to be our last move and this was going to be the house that I'll be pushing a wheel chair through when the time comes. After the pool was filled, which took about a day and a half, I took my first step in. I got to say, I was not impressed. The finish was not even, some areas felt smooth like the sample but most of the pool was like 50 grit sandpaper and the other area felt like 20 grit. There are areas where if you rub against it, you would lose a layer of skin...I'm not joking. The overall finish , in no way, looks like the sample in the showroom or on the Pebble Tec website. The pool was completed around Nov.1 2020, we had the heat on in the pool set at 85, we just shut it off after until we got the first gas bill...$500, and thats with a cover. The next thing we noticed after the rough texture, was large (dime size to a quarter size) white chunks of plaster embedded in the pebble tec, once you see them your eyes are constantly drawn to them, you can see them just standing on the deck looking into the pool. Them we started seeing cracks in various areas, some hair line and a lot that are much larger then just a hair line. (its a new pool). The PB said that it is normal with gunite pools, concrete cracks...Should I accept that answer?...Its a new pool. The full project was around $57,000.00. Then we noticed large separation of the pebble tec from the tiles, areas where I can see the gunite behind. Is this what I can expect from a pebble tec finish? Is this normal? Should I see a lawyer? We are still waiting to see what the PB solution is.... Am I the only one that had this issue with PEBBLE TEC? I like the colour or color ( Im in USA now) but if this is what pebble tec is about , I would never recommend it.
