Our Quartz Infused Plaster Finish
Monogram's standard finish is a quartz infused plaster which actually improves appearance with age. There are numerous color options with quartz and your pool can take on the color of turquoise blue Caribbean water, a dark mountain lake, a sparkling light blue sky...or anything in between.
We also offer Pebble/River Rok - The inside surface of the pool will actually contain about 50 million tiny polished smooth pebbles. This is a great finish for a natural looking pool and we have a custom color called "Monogram blue" that makes your pool the most beautiful color you have ever seen:
Monogram is the only builder in the Lehigh Valley that has passed the rigorous "Certified Start up Technician" course and exam
National Plasterers Council Start-Up Certification
This 9-hour program and exam teaches the NPC industry method of properly starting up the water chemistry and care of a newly surfaced swimming pool and/or spa. The certification covers five primary areas: The History and Chemistry of Swimming Pool Surfaces, Understanding Water Chemistry, Using a Water Test Kit, Start-Up Procedures and Start-Up Problems and Solutions.
The first 30 days of curing determine the longevity of a plaster/quartz finish. A NPC certified start up tech will ensure that your pool is started properly following the rigorous standards of the NPC.
THE EXCLUSIVE MONOGRAM "STARTUP TEC PK3" START UP METHOD:

Minimizes tedious surface brushing to remove plaster dust.
Helps create a more uniform exposed quartz/pebble finish.
Creates a much smoother finish.
How it works:
Startup-Tec is a powerful, multi-polymer formula utilizing advanced polymer technologies. This unique formula is non-acidic and can be safely added during the initial pool water filling to immediately prevent the formation of damaging plaster dust.Damaging dust can form on the curing surfaces as calcium and hydroxides transport to the surface edge causing water pH to increase above 8.3 where calcium is insoluble and quickly precipitates to form calcium carbonate. Startup Tec multi-polymers synergistically and strongly sequesters calcium to block and prevent its formation over a broad pH range. The product's powerful anionic dispersion and sequestration properties also provide for effective dispersion of plaster cream exposure of quartz and pebble type aggregates without the need for additional acid washing or acid circulation.
