June 10 2012 I purchased $1130 .00 of this plaster, all arrived after a week to my house in California. I emptied the pool and also purchased as Alex told me to purchase the resin m-50 to fix everything . So i did , we applied the first layer at 7:00 am till 11:00 am temperature 95 degree F. All dried up very quick and the 2nd coat we applied the next day morning at 7:00 am till 10:30 am temperature 97 degree F. with the high temperature of 97 degree day time at night we went in to the pool and walked around and checked that all is dry.
next day we start filling the pool with half inch hose. It took 37 hours for the pool to fill up. sure thing just like everyone else after 2 days i started to see some parts are bubbling. I called and Alex told me that this is only the cure time and will happen for a weeks till it cures. 4th and 5th day i see some parts are peeling of and called Alex again , same crap. [continued below]....
..... And finally after week he tells me that I better empty the water from the pool and take off the upper layer and redo the upper layer and he will give me discount on the next pallet. He told me if i do not do that My pool pump and filter will be destroyed from all the defective materials.
Alex the crook, he thinks i am going to buy this defective plaster junk from him again and fall for his scam again. I am out of $4000.00. between the $1130.00 defective material that he sold me and 800.00 labor for 2 days and water bill, all the start up chemical for pool , sure thing my pool pump stopped working and my filter got clogged with concrete and became 350 pound garbage rock(cost $1600.00 to replace) lost $4000.00 total. I should have hired pool plaster company and spend $5000.00 and they would give me my dream pool with warranty.
DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE POOL PLASTER FROM SIDER -OXYDRO --ALEX THE LAIR IT DOES NOT WORK" DO NOT FALL FOR HIS SCAM . NOBODY IN CALIFORNIA HEARD OF THIS JUNK FLYBY SCAM COMPANY. REPORT THIS COMPANY TO BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU. (BBB).
