    Pebble tec finishes in shallow pools

    In a 4-5-4 foot depth do the blues really get that deep rich blue color? On their web sight it appears that 9 ft is the sweet spot but we are not going anywhere near that deep.

    Look like lagoon blue is the most blue at 5 ft?

    33x19, 3'4"-5'6", 7ft spa, baja reef, 14'x9', 18" deep, 10,668 Gal. Quartzite coping, Stonescape Tropics Blue mini-pebble, abalone & glass beads. Jandy Equip.(JXi heater, 2.7HPVS pump, PLC1400 SWG, CV580 filter, Aqualink, LEDs)

    It's very personal. I don't like the really Blue ones. In shallow water you see the blue finish color, not the natural Blue from filtered Sunlight. No wrong choice, it's just what you like.

    I am going with blue granite PS. It is hard to decide - my pool (being built) is about the depth of yours. I looked at a few pools and just really focused on what the colors looked like in the shallow and medium depths. The blue granite looks blue (to me) except on like the tanning ledge and top step. I have reservations - but I think I would with any color I choose. I mean it is a LOT of money for guesswork and that is all this really is at this point Good luck on your choice and please share pics!

    Yeah, you just have to look at pictures until your are cross eyed and then flip a coin.

    You can look at my black pebblesheen play pool in my build below if you want to add to the confusion.
