I don't know if you remember.... two weeks ago we got another new pool cleaner. Our other pool cleaner lasted two years (of course, it lasted until the warranty just ran out). The new pool cleaner works so good (?) it has been sucking off the tile around the edge of the pool :(
The last four days I've been getting quotes to have the pool refinished and retiled. You wouldn't believe how many choices there are! You can plaster, quartz plaster, regular pebble-tec or mini pebble-tec. Then some companies offer different types of pebble-tec like: sheen or baja, etc. Then they have a multitude of colors of pebble-tec. There are also almost a million choices of tiles. One of the things I'd really like to do is put a turtle or fish or something to define the area where it is 4 to 5 feet (so the grandkids know where the deep part starts). These "things" you can add to your pool range from $100 to $300 for the small to $800 and up to the larger "things." (The things I scanned and posted above.) Oh my! There is a diving board and the pool is 10 feet deep. There is also a slide and the pool is 8 feet deep there. I call our pool "The Money Pit." Remember that movie?
