RE: Garden hose to fill pool, 1 or 2 ? (Follow-Up #8)

Two hoses. One from the front and one from the back for 25,000 gallons. Took about 18-20 hours.

Put a sock over the end and duct tape the hose to a capped water bottle and it will float up to the top for you and not drag on the plaster.

I used 3 from my house (two regular spigots plus my landscaping spigot). I started the third after about 12 hours with two.

A fire hydrant would have been nice. Our pool is 35,000 gallons and it took about 36 hours (maybe a bit more, I can't remember).

RE: Pebble Sheen Cracking? (Follow-Up #10)

You will love the Pebble Sheen. :-) We've got Black Onyx Pebble Sheen and wouldn't do another pool without it.

There are so many great pool tiles that don't look like the traditional pool tiles of the "olden days." I think one important thing to remember when choosing a more natural looking tile is to use a colored grout. Take another look at Padre Fan's close-up photo and you'll see what I mean. The colored grout makes the tile blend in better with the rock coping.

Here's a photo of our tile the day it was being installed. It hadn't been fully cleaned when this photo was taken, but you can tell that there is colored grout (Winter Grey is the color):

And in this one you can see how the tile blends in better with the colored grout than it would have with white grout:
