    Looking for picture of slate blue pebblesheen pool

    Hello,

    I am 2 weeks away from plastering our pool..I've agonized over the color pebblesheen to use for WAY too long. Narrowed it down to blue granite and slate blue. I've seen blue granite in person but, there are no local slate blue pools for me to look at..if anyone has any pictures of theirs- I'd certainly appreciate a look at them!

    Thanks!

    Have you seen Aqua Blue? I saw Granite Blue, Prism Blue, Slate Blue, and of those three Prism Blue was the best in my opinion. However, my wife thought it was a little too dark though so we went with Aqua Blue sight-unseen. It turned out amazing and two other couples who are building pools have since seen our pool and they also have decided on Aqua Blue.

    Good luck!

    Thanks...yes, I've seen aqua blue..the base color doesn't go with our tile at all...the blue granite has too many black specks in it...so I might have to with slate blue..sight unseen! Scary!

    Late to the game ... ours is Blue Granite Pebblesheen ... we're in Pearland.

    We absolutely love the color:







    Be sure to get the crushed abalone shell additive - it mimics the silica bits in actual granite.

    The blue granite looks really good.

    I have Tahoe blue pebble, but wanted to comment. I agree, the abalone shell, or maybe some gold flakes, would have been a good addition.

    That Blue Granite picture looks really good...It is also the color I wanted originally. However, when we went around to actually see the color in person, it looked nothing like what I have seen in pictures. I was bummed! I saw three different blue granite pools and they all looked sort of dull and greyish blue. Your pool looks a very crisp blue...I imagine your water quality is probably better than the other pools I saw too.

    Anyway here are a couple pics of the Aqua Blue. I think it would match most any kind of tile. My father came by today and asked me if I put coloring my water to get it so blue...and he was being serious.

    I've found that time of day and how the sun is hitting the pool makes a huge difference on the look of our water. Also when the water is moving makes it look a much deeper blue.

    Your aqua blue pool looks nothing like the aqua blue we saw...the two we saw were very artificial blue looking- yours looks very natural and pretty. Thanks for posting..although I am now possibly more confused

    We chose to go with a NPT Stonescapes mini-pebble color that our PB called his "special blend"... From comparisons with the samples we've seen in their showroom, ours is the Tahoe Blue with abalone shells mixed in. We are in Los Angeles County and love our pool color.

    Pool done!!
