    Help! I cannot pick a color for diamond brite

    I have a bluestone deck and am looking for a good color for the inside. I like French grey but would like my water to look blue. Does anyone have a gunite type product in there pool they like the color of? I would love to see pictures if you have some.

    Pretty much anything will end up looking blue; it's a matter of how dark or light blue you want. My pebble finish is really gray, and the water looks pretty dark blue.

    You can look at all the Diamond Brite or PebbleTec colors online, but there are a million variables (sunlight, color of the decking, trees, clouds, etc). You won't really know what it looks like until it is done.

    Pebble Tec, tries to show the color at different depths here. And you can scroll through a bunch of photos of pools with the actual color. But they all look different (as you will see) ... lack-satin

    We used a local / generic version of Pebble Sheen (ie small rocks) for our pool. I had the guys custom mix the product on site. It is still hard to tell what it will look like until you have it full of water.

    Just curious... is that a special drain cover that they plastered to match the pool, or do they all allow that?
