We are in the early phases of building our first ever pool...my husband and I have searched tons of photos and every time we both love a pool it is a black pebble. So, we told our PB that that is the finish we wanted to go with. She is VERY strongly trying to discourage us from this saying:
-We won't be able to see if Algae is building
-It won't reflect at night
-It will look poor with our very light grey/white tiles
This pebble will be polished in the spa and unpolished in the wet deck and pool (ranging 3-6 feet)..about half the pool is in the sun and half is in the shade...we live in Las Vegas
Can anyone offer any insight on these points about the black pebble? Is there something that will give us that dark lagoon feel without the problems she has brought to our attention?
