    Need help!!

    My wife and I just ordered our new pool and we are having trouble picking a liner. We are looking at a new color to 2013 called Natural Blue, she likes it but I think it's going to be to dark, any suggestions??

    Welcome to the forum. A dark liner can certainly help warm that water up depending if you need that where you are. What kinda pool?

    Welcome to TFP

    The liner color is a matter of personal preference. A darker color will help keep the water warmer which may be a benefit if you are located in the north.

    Would suggest adding the city and state to your profile along with any available information on the new pool you ordered in your signature. Here's how to do it: http://www.troublefreepool.com/what-...ns-t10341.html This information will allow us to help you better, plus you will not have to re-enter it on subsequent posts.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
