    New Build and Marcite Questions Quartz Scape/Color

    Hi folks,

    I have been reading the forums for a few days as we prepare to pull the triger on our pool. I have a few questions I would like your opinion on:

    1. We would like the color of the water to be a deeper blue but not lagoon dark. The largest concern is no green! We are planning to use Quartz Scapes. Looking at the samples we favor the pictures of Midnight Blue; however, it appears in the sample (not in the pic of the water) that there could be some green. I think our backup color is Barbados Blue.

    Does anyone have first had experiece with this product and or color? A few things to consider in your response is the pool will be 8' deep and have an enclosure which will impact the darkness of the pool.

    2. We have a large sun shelf in the plans (10' X 16' includes 2 steps).

    Any thoughts on doing a lighter blue surface for this area?

    Thank you!

    Before Pics...
    The pool does not meet the angel of repose so the walls will be 12" thick with #3 bars 6" in center. Since I require a stem wall I decided to save some money by using the pool as the stem wall. The pool will be a L shape with the a sundeck on the short side 16X10 and the long side as the back part of the wall. The long side of the pool will be 16X42.

    I have a quartz plaster that was just done in Tahoe color, its a grey / blue look to it with a nice blue color of the water. I love it.

    Oh yeah, my shallow end is 3' deep, deep end is 9' deep.

    rok, any tan or yellowish color plaster will produce green colored water

    Thank you... and nice color Marauder

    I am switching to a different marcite (not happy with the warranty on Quartzscape) Premix Marqis (http://www.premixmarbletite.com/id19.html) most likley either midnight blue or San Pablo. I am not exactly sure which will produce the deep blue (but not black) look we would like. I have some appointments with the PB to see some pools this next weekend.

    My permits are being help by the county.... I just found out the HOA has to approve them before the county will issue a permit? grrr
