    Opinions on new liner color/design

    Having to replace our liner and I was wanting opinions on which color to go with and design on the pool floor. Currently it is a light baby blue and it shows every piece of trash which is good and bad. Also, what mil do you suggest? We are using the Tara brand

    I like the Cayman and Cheyenn because it isn't dark, dark blue. I am just scared of something that is so dark I can't see any dirt but don't want to see every little speck, either.

    Re: Opinions on new liner color/design

    I vote for ocean wave. Can help on the mil. I used the standard and can't say if it's worth upgrading to thicker. Maybe if you have a large dog that swims otherwise I don't think so just b/c I have not heard a lot of stories where people have tearing issues.

    Do you have this liner? I just don't want so dark that I can't see debris

    Re: Opinions on new liner color/design

    Wow, I didnt know liners had designs like the pebble or quartz look. Very nice. I don't know anything about them, but think Key West is nice, so is Cap Cod, but I personally like a richer blue than light blue.

    Thanks for the input Do you have a richer blue? If so, is it easy to tell if you have debris on the bottom?

    Sorry can't help there. Just starting our build with digging tomorrow. Others have a richer blue and hope they see this thread and can help with that question.

    Re: Opinions on new liner color/design

    I think only liner people can really answer the question about debris. For those of us that have or are getting a pebble aggregate I imagine it would be difficult to see debris just because of all the different color pebbles.

    I like that Key West color!

    I have Cheyenne (except from another manufacturer), and I think it is great. People sometimes take a second look to see if they are real tiles.

    Thanks so much! That was one of my choices! I am down between it and Ocean Wave.

    Between those two I probably like Cheyenne best.

    Re: Opinions on new liner color/design

    As for mil size, the consensus of the forum is that it makes little if any difference.

    The standard mil size should do fine.

    That was my conclusion as well. From what I read the life of the liner was more depending on how you treated it chemical wise.

    Hi. I don't but I have a similar shade. You'll be able to see debris. I used to maintain a black plaster pool. You could still see stuff at the bottom since most debris isn't black (green, sandy color, brown is more typical). The black looked awesome with its slate patio and stone coping. My dw wouldn't go for it at our house though.
    I plan to open next weekend and can take some pics if you like. I have cocco beach tile with miranar bottom by Merlin. It's good bc you can see the debris to vacuum but it doesn't stand out like light bottoms do.

    My liner is black and I can still see all the dirt on the bottom so I would not worry about that.
