Pool plaster - advice???

This forum is great when you are looking for advice on building a new pool as we are. We really appreciate all the knowledge that people share in here.
We are looking at using Wet Edge or Stonescapes for the plaster but I have seen many people talking well about the PebbleSheen. Does anybody know if these are equivalent? Any pros and cons that you can share? We would like a surface that is not too rough on the feet of our kids.

RE: Pool plaster - advice???

Hi, while I am by no means an expert, I have been researching a lot too and believe that wet edge is a company that was started by former pebble tec employees. they do warranty their finish for a long time (maybe lifetime?). I don't recall reading anything about texture so I can't help you there. The wet edge pricing seems to be comparable to pebble sheen (as opposed to the tec which is less expensive) so that may be a clue. Good luck!

RE: Pool plaster - advice???

I finished my pool in June and we chose to use WetEdge. (Pearl Matrix) We love it and don't have any regrets. Our 6 year old daughter has not had one scratch.

I'm located in League City, so if you would like to stop by and feel/see what it looks like feel free!
