    Tahoe Blue Mini Pebble - to double black or not

    Hi Everyone,

    I am having an IGP installed and wonder if I should go double black to get the deeper color as the pool will not be very deep: 3.5' - 5.5' - 4' sport pool.

    Does anyone have a similar depth with just Tahoe Blue or the Tahoe Blue with Double Black?

    Thanks.

    You might consider how warm it can get. If you live in a very hot, sunny climate like Texas/Arizona, a dark shallow pool can get very warm.

    Thank you. I am in the desert, but like my pool in the low 90's. we'll also be installing solar heating.

    Enjoy it! I bet it will look beautiful. Just curious, is this color created by adding more black pebble or dye to the plaster base?

    It's done by doubling the ratio of Black Pebbles in the mix as far as I understand it.

    Can you post a picture of your Tahoe with added black? I'm thinking of doing the same.
