Questions on Dimond Bright wasn`t it one of 3Ms million products that they stopped producing in Nov 09.
I guess there is a huage stockpile of it available for people to add to there mixtures be it marble or whatever the want to use.
Being in the business the problem with all these pe-mixed plaster is the shelf life of the cement added at the batching plant, after 3 months it is generaly pased its use by date, never written on the bags.
Our product poolquartz is made from 100% Quartz to obtain the colour we add the same quartz that is ceramicly coated. (We do no use Oxides for colours) 12 years and no problems.
Now Pebbtech it is a excelent product and has been in use in Australia for many years, the pebbles come from New Zealand it is popular because it dosent require the skills to apply that a plaster requires which is alway a problem in any final finish. They add cement on site as well. so that is your answer to many of these problems. FRESH CEMENT.

The best option available in the market is resurfacing your pool with glass tile. It is a little more expensive but it last forever. Warranty for up to 20 years. Very gentle to the touch, does not stain. And you dont have to empty the pool for the rest of your life.

Please explain how the glass tile helps to maintain CYA and CH nice and steady in correct levels for life.
I assume that you still use masonry product to lay it and pool equipment to run it.
And while you at it, put in the average price of tilling pool with diving depth, 32 x 16FT.

I was installing a pool 4 years ago and I was weighing all of my options as well. I finally decided on a pebble surface and was going to use pebble teck, but I then came across a product called wet edge. It is the exact same quality of stone as peb teck but it is cheaper and actually smoother than some peb teck finishes. Our pool is still beautiful and I would recommend this finish to anyone almost more than pebble teck.

Diamond brite is the way to go..Been doing it for years. No roughness problems on feet. I have it in my own pool and love it..I resurface pools and have tried most of the products out there at least one time and nothing compares to the strength and comfort of this product.. Here are Some pics of one before and after.

I am choosing the Diamond Brite finish and have a question about color. We are choosing the darker color, Midnight Blue, and was curious how LED lights look in it. The lights change colors and was wondering if it you could still notice it in the darker surface. Thanks
