Problem during pebble finish spray


Jul 21, 2019
Tampa, FL
Hello all,
Our pool builder began spraying our pebble finish today but ran into an issue with their equipment, which forced them to stop spraying about halfway through. The walls and steps still look unfinished and they didn’t get any of the floor done.

Is this going to give me issues later on since they’re coming back tomorrow to finish up? I would assume this needs to be finished in one step. My pool builder didn’t pick up when I called, so I don’t know how they’re going to handle it. Thanks for your input.

That looks more like a base coat or primer they put on before the pebble... :scratch:

Let's see what some of our other members have to say..

Plaster is applied in two passes. The first pass is spread thin and forced into the shell. It's job is to adhere and allow the second pass to be applied without sloughing off.

I don't see your situation being an issue since they'll be coating the entire pool again anyway.
