So I've just bought a house with a pool and nice rock waterfall. Well, long story short the wifey (geologist by profession) thinks they look fake, mostly because of the color and mineral scaling. Has anybody had gunite rocks re-stained or re-done? I'm not even sure of what my options are at this point. The ledge does have some cracks, albeit hairline and below the waterline is beginning to lose some material off the surface when scrubbed with a nylon brush.
I'm already looking at $2k to get the pool replastered. Should I suckitup and get it done at the same time? I have a feeling I'm going to get taken to the cleaners if I do... Any chance this could be a DIY and have it look halfway decent? I'll post a pic if it ever quits raining.
