At 5:30am this morning they started working on my pool. This big truck in the alley mixed the cement and the pebbletec. While he was mixing up the pebbletec, the others got the pool ready. They covered my tile, the Kool-decking, the pool jets, the light and the drain. Then they put up a network of cables above the pool to hold the sprayers.
They each wore these shoes - see the spikes?
There was a crew of 7. One held the hose that was coming from the truck in the alley. The other men troweled the mixture making it smooth. As they troweled they sprayed it with water. They sprayed this mixture 4 times. After the last time they sprayed the mixture, they did their final trowel. They sprayed away the top of the cement to exposure the pebbles underneath. I wondered how they got the pebbles in there! It's in mixture from the start. It was fun to watch!
