    Color for Trim in Tahoe Blue Pool

    We have decided on Tahoe Blue Pebble Tec for our pool finish, and we don't know what color of trim (drains, jets, etc.) we should be getting. It is plumbed for white trim right now, but we aren't sure if that is right. We see some Tahoe Blue pools with black and some with white. The majority of the drain will be covered with the pebble tec finish, but the outline of it will be in the white or black. Are there any Tahoe Blue owners out there that can weigh in? Thanks!

    I don't have Tahoe Blue but we have a Gemstone color that is close to Blue Granite PebbleSheen...which would be lighter than the Tahoe Blue. We got grey fittings for all of our plumbing and while they are slightly darker than our plaster, they virtually disappear to the eye, especially when the pump is running. I would think it would be the same - maybe even better with Tahoe Blue. Grey or black would be best IMO

    My neighbor has Pebble Tec in Tahoe Blue and all his fittings are gray color. It looks very good, but if black and white are your only choice, I would pick black.

    I think mine are going to be black and I looked at a pool with same features and black works great.

    Here is a photo of Blue Granite Pebble Sheen looks the same as Tahoe Blue with grey Paramount parts, I like the grey it blends very well.[attachment=0:sq4yomu7]033.JPG[/attachment:sq4yomu7]
