Pebble Tec Finish Swimming Pool

Pebble Tec®, the all natural pebble rock pool finish, is ideal for the interior of pools, spas and water features. It offers unlimited design possibilities to create spectacular natural looking pool environments.


Originally developed in Australia over 20 years ago, the Pebble Tec® finish produces a spectrum of iridescent colors as the sunlight changes throughout the day. It allows for contoured shoreline-like edges, blends waterfalls and boulders naturally with the pool's interior and can be used to create a sloping beach pool entrance rather than traditional steps. (See the selection of Pebble Tec© finishes).

Imported from around the world, the pebbles are chosen for their natural color and smoothness. Finely screened and naturally tumbled, these pebbles are mixed with special formulated cement and additives to create a beautiful finish that is resilient, non-porous, and easily cleaned.

A naturally superior alternative to plaster/marcite, the patented Pebble Tec© finish also provides a substantially longer warranty. It is a stronger, longer lasting, and more beautiful surface for pool interiors.

Adams is an authorized/licensed Pebble Tec® contractor. Every year Adam's highly-trained crews apply Pebble Tec© finishes to thousands of residential and commercial pools and spas.

What is Pebble Tec?
Pebble Tec is a patented interior surface for swimming pools utilizing finely screened natural river rock worn smooth by years of nature's tumbling. The rock is geologically tested for hardness, angularity, content, and size.

What is the history of Pebble Tec?
Pebble Tec was developed in Australia more than a decade ago. Over 20,000 pools have been installed in Australia and the United States. This means you are considering a time proven, quality product that has gained strong customer acceptance worldwide.

How are the pebbles placed on the surface?
Predetermined ratios of Pebble Tec stone and cement are combined with water and additives, then pneumatically applied with a standard pool plaster pump to a thickness of approximately 1/2". Once the Pebble Tec is applied, it is hand troweled utilizing a special process by trained applicators. At a precise time the material is "exposed" by a method which uncovers the top layer of pebbles. When the finish is thoroughly hardened, the pool is then cleaned with a solution to enhance the brightness and luster of the natural stone.

Is the surface rough?
The surface can be described as "orange peel" smooth with indentions. The stones used in Pebble Tec are finely screened and naturally tumbled resulting in a bumpy non-abrasive surface. The pebble surface is also comfortable for walking in the shallow end.

What if algae grows on the Pebble Tec finish?
Algae can be a problem on any pool surface if pool maintenance has been lacking. However, algae does not bond as readily to Pebble Tec as it does to conventional pool plaster due to the tumbled stone surface. Pebble Tec can also be cleaned more easily than plaster.

Does the Pebble Tec pool vary in color?
A pool done in this finish is intended to duplicate the natural appearance of a lake or stream bed and therefore color variation is a desired result. Water has a tendency to reflect hues and tones depending on sunlight intensity and angle that can vary depending on the time of day.

Will the pebbles fall off?
It is normal to experience a small loss of pebbles for a short period of time after Pebble Tec installation.

What is the warranty on Pebble Tec?
A five year written warranty is offered with this product.
