    Can't decide pebble tec Ocean Blue or Midnight blue

    Our pool will be one of these 2 colors. Does anyone have pics of these and why they choose it. I don't want any green color. Thanks!

    You should first decide if you want pebbletec or the smaller pebblesheen product. From what I can see Ocean Blue only comes in the minipebble pebblesheen product while the midnight blue is the larger pebble product.

    A quick google image search shows the midnight blue looking a tad green in certain light.

    Good suggestion Brad.

    Texture is extremely important, and getting that decision made first should be paramount.

    My PB said I can get either color in the pebble sheen. I've only seen the ocean blue in person and not the midnight. I was wondering if anyone has a midnight blue pool experience? Some pics online look blue in each color and others green. So hard to tell.

    I have StoneScapes Midnight blue and in certain lights it does have a green tint. It isn't often that it looks that way but I don't care for the look when it does.

    Re: Can't decide pebble tec Ocean Blue or Midnight blue

    There are quite a few factors that impact the perceived color of water in a pool. Clouds, trees, reflections, shadows, etc. Sometimes my water has a greenish hue to it depending on how the sunlight filters through the trees, we have lots of trees. Sometimes it is bluish if the sky is super blue and clear. Sometimes it has no hue at all and you just see straight to the bottom. But, one thing is certain, with TFPC my water is always crystal clear and looks great.

    I wouldn't be too worried about the subtle differences between the colors that are in the same color family. If you like most of the pics you see of a particular color then you will be happy with it.

    Re: Can't decide pebble tec Ocean Blue or Midnight blue

    I was just on Wetedge's website and noticed they have a water color guide that might be helpful.

    Wet Edge | Water Color Guide

    There is also a video about water color on this page
