    Pool skimmer color

    Where can I get pool skimmer colors that will match the color of my liner as opposed to white. We are installing a grey liner. I don't like e look of stark white. It's not as bad on a grey liner. I never seem them on the style pool I'm doing. It's called "Hampton style pool" we are doing concrete not,gunfire. Here is an example. Thank you!

    Link works for me. However, I do not know where to get gray colered skimmers. Hopefully someone who does will comment soon

    Our pool sales guy also said we could spray paint or paint the white skimmers. Is that smart? I just feel like they would fade within time. I want the look of the photo above. If link doesn't work please google "Hampton style pool" it's basically a rectangular pool with bluestone coping and grass all around. Thank you for your help!

    It's working now, nice looking house and pool! Try googling custom color skimmers.
