    Need help choosing a liner color

    Hello All,
    I'm looking for help with choosing a liner for my inground pool, which is currently under construction. There are quite a few liners I would love to see installed in pools. If you would please post pictures (1 sunny day picture/1 cloudy day picture) of your pool if you have ANY of the following liners, and your opinions of them. It's been very difficult finding actual pool pictures with some of these liners. These are the liners of interest....

    Liners by Latham: Stonetite, Pebbletite, Gray Marble, Carrara, Sand Pebble, Gold Dust, Crystal, Travertine, Natural River Stone, Bronze Travertine, Gold Pebble.
    Liners by GLI: Gerano, Torino
    Liners by Megna: Greystone, White Terrazo, Grey Stucco, Sandstone

    Thank you!!!

    Hi Patrick,
    Thank you for the response. I have gone through many threads and have seen some pictures. But I'm interested in seeing more. It's such a hard decision without seeing them in person. Hopefully people will respond with some good pictures. Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Thank you! Hoping for some good pictures to help me out.

    Patrick,
    Yes, so many times. Some of the more rare liners just don't seem to be out there in pictures. Just hoping people read this and say, "I have that kind of liner!" And post pictures.

    Re: Need help choosing a liner color

    I'm in the exact same boat Mandy! I want to see Gli bonito and some more of gerano as well! Let me know if you find any and I'll do the same! I did find some on the Gli FB page but I think most are gerano and I wanted to see a whole pool view of bonito.

    Hi and welcome...

    I have no idea what the make or model is of my liner (it came with the pool, which came with the house), but I really like it. It reflects the sun nicely and makes the water look really inviting on a hot, summer day. Here's a picture. You may be able to match it up based upon the design along the top.

    Re: Need help choosing a liner color

    Hi. Kodiak1120, I believe that is from Merlin Industires (Montego Bay Tile, Ocean Pebble bottom). I really wanted this for my pool but we went with another pattern. It looks great! Of course I'm sure many manufacturers make liners that look similar. When you need a new liner (not soon I hope) it's worth contacting them since they should have your pool specs on hand. My liner came with a spec sheet and a job number so I assume they have this on file for future orders.

    For anyone thinking about liners I can say that dark bottoms show the seam easier than light colors (imo). I had a light color on my last pool and it was much harder to see. That being said once the pump is running the water is moving and you can't tell even with the darker color underwater. But above the water line I can easily see where the seam is at one particular point.

    Re: Need help choosing a liner color

    Here's mine. No border on the liner. I like how it doesn't break up the pool with the coping stones (edge). Something to consider. I'm glad we did it like this.

    Liner is in my signature.

All Hayward system: 140k BTU HeatPro heat pump, 3/4HP single speed TriStar 2" Pump, DE6020 filter, AquaPlus Automation/Salt Chlorination, remote controls, ColorLogic 4.0 lighting. Polaris 280 w/PB4-60 BP. TF100 & K1766 test kits. Rinox Palazzo pavers and Spherik coping. Pool installed 9/2013, project completed 6/16/14.

    I have Latham liner (looks like the same as kodiak1120 has)
    It's Cambridge/Royal prism and it features ultra-seam/invisible floor seam technology http://lathampool.com/ultra-seam
    I've posted about it here

    Here's how Cambridge/Royal Prism looks in my pool


    Personally, I would go even with darker colors (black?). Wife likes Cambridge/Royal Prism.

    Thanks for the info... I'll keep that in mind.
