    Diamond Brite color selection

    We are currently under construction of an inground concrete pool. Trying to determine the best choice of color for diamond brite surface finish. We would like a very blue look so we are considering Tahoe Blue and midnight blue. Although, I have been reading that the darker colors show much more inconsistencies. Any tips or pictures of Tahoe or midnight blue? Thanks.

    Re: Diamond Brite color selection

    The SGM website has samples of colors (Southern Grouts & Mortars = Diamond Brite). In general, the really dark colors will show wear and whitening (looks like chalking) more dramatically, and more quickly than the lighter colors. Also, those bad water balance issues, when and if they happen, are less forgiving on very dark finishes.
