I am installing a pool soon and am trying to select a finish. I ahve two children and have been recommended several by my pool contractor, i like the gemstone JEWEL abalone that can be added to give that glimmer of a seashell in the pool. Has anyone ever used this. He says go with krystalkrete or sunstone product or even beadcreate. I live in FLORIDA. Please help with any suggestions you may have.
PB is also suggesting all HAYW products and I've been reading about Polaris alot on this website before I knew anything about what he was going to suggest. HELP!

RE: Aggregate pool surfaces

I can't speak to gemstone jewel abalone, but Krystalkrete and Sunstone are CLI products ( Exposed aggregate finishes from Orlando, FL. Beadcrete is a glass-type aggregate ( Both a good choice, however, Beadcrete will "shimmer" more due to the glass. The warranty on the CLI pebble should be better (lifetime vs. 7 years). Personal preference. Your PB is saying Krystalkrete or Sunstone because that is the vendor that they prefer, due to using them repeatedly.
As for Hayward vs. Polaris, Polaris is mostly a robot pool cleaner manufacturer. Hayward has all of the pumps, filters, etc. to make you pool work. There are basically 3 choices for pool equipment companies; Hayward, Pentair, and Jandy. I prefer Pentair, but all are good.
