I'm looking into getting my pool resurfaced - my current surface is the original marcite with spider cracks on about 50% of the surface due to the previous owners keeping it drained for a few years.
I'm planning to go with one of the many Pebble-Tec surfaces, but since I've had so many problems with algae on my current surface(mainly due to the cracks) I'm taking that heavily into consideration before making a choice on color.
For that reason, I'm leaning towards one of the lighter/white colors of pebble-tec such as White Diamonds or Cool Blue (pebble-sheen). I feel like this will be just as easy to spot algae on as my current marcite surface, so that I can eradicate it early on.
Does anyone have any experience with algae on any of the darker pebble-tec colors (Turtle Bay, Black Onyx, etc) or the non-Black or white colors such as Desert Gold or Irish Mist?
I feel like the dark colors would make any type of algae hard to spot, and that the green/tan colors would make mustard algae hard to spot - leading to it being more developed and harder to get rid of when I do spot it for brushing/shocking.
Please let me know what your experiences have been with this, I'd like to make a well-informed decision before making a final choice!
