    New Pebble Tec

    So like most people, we had a hard time picking out a pebble tec color that we loved. We had issues with both Tec and Sheen because they give off greenish hues in almost any darker color. We LOVED Beadcrete, but it was so expensive. Luckily, our PB mentioned a newer product from Pebble Tec called Luminous Beadcrete Series. It is a mixture of pebble tec or sheen mixed with 20% beadcrete. We decided to go that route, and chose Blue Granite as the base pebble and we added double abalone. I was really trying to avoid the greenish color that Blue Granite could sometimes give, and we just filled up the pool today, and it is the most brilliant green you have ever seen.

    I know that once we start adding chemicals and brushing, the bluer colors will begin to come out. I am just posting these first few pics because throughout most of my research, i did not see anyone with the Luminous Series on the site. As the weeks progress, I will add more pictures for future reference.

    Thanks. So, it has been about 2 days since adding chemicals and it is starting to turn much more blue. Seems like it is changing colors each day, and are getting more and more blue, so I am happy.

    It was the same travertine as the pavers, just in tile. We used the same versailles pattern, but the tile was only 0.5" think. The color was called "Nysa" i believe.

    It's beautiful, but I think surrounding colors get left out of the equation a lot. They have much to do with the colors pulled out of the final product.
