River Rok? Salt Water? Basic info?
Ok we just purchased a home with a pool that needs new plaster, tile and coping. Let me start by saying I know nothing about pools, I have never had one. I have been in pools with salt systems and love the water. What is the difference in maitanence in a salt system? Does salt make sense? Also originally we were just going to go with white plaster again (that's what's there), but we are now throwing around other surfaces. Our pool builder (guy we like and want to do the work) uses river rok, diamond brite, or plaster. Is River Rok comparable to Pebble Tech? We need low maintenance, and we live in MA so we have to close the pool for the winter (want low maintenance in the winter). We also want to not have to re-plaster in the next 5-10 years. The pool is huge, 20 x 50, so does the river rok expense make sense?
