Pool Interior Finish Disclosure
Pool Interior Finishes are composed of materials which may have inherent shading and/or color variation which is normal and should not be construed as a defect. Environmental factors such as humidity, temperature, substrate conditions, etc., during the installation process can cause normal color variations (normal mottling) across the surface of a coating.
This is generally a uniform shading or cloudy appearance. These variations may be more pronounced on a cloudy day or at night with the light on. These conditions are beyond the contractor's control. Discoloration or mottled-shade variation is not considered a failure or defect, but is characteristic of most cementitious products, not needing remedy.
It is a normal occurrence of most exposed aggregate finishes to have variation in the surface aggregate density, or variations in the concentration of aggregates across the finished surface. Proper evaluation of an interior finish is done when the pool is full of water and under natural light conditions only. The pool interior finish is NOT guaranteed for evenness of color and may not be the exact shade anticipated. The shade and color of pigmented surfaces will vary and “fade” over time. Crazing (check cracks and hairline cracks), may be noticeable and may be quite pronounced with colored finishes and are normal and are not considered defects.
