    New guy pool build

    Signed our contract in April and finally broke ground last week. Never thought picking a PebbleSheen color would be so difficult. Leaning towards Blue Granite, Aqua Blue and Turtle Bay. So many nice colors I just want to make the right choice. Pool will be 3.5 - 5.5 ft depth.

    Re: New guy pool build

    Pools been finished with the exception of some landscaping. Waiting till spring to plant and mulch. Had numerous communication issues with the builder through the whole process but overall we love the pool.11012570_10206357938461422_2152048672097890220_n.jpg

    The color is fantastic. It changes throughout the day from light blue turquoise to deep rich. Very happy with it. My dog loves running around the pool when we are in it.

    Re: New guy pool build

    Hi Chucko
    Do you have any additional photos of the pool color in different lighting?
    We are considering Northshore Tahoe also, but are kind of leaning toward Aqua Blue because the Northshore Tahoe that we've seen is kind of dark. These two photos you have look great though so any feedback you migh have comparing the two would be great
    Thanks!
    Mike

    Re: New guy pool build

    I was worried the color would be darker than I like but it's not at all. Color changes with lighting and angle. Beautiful shades of blue/turquoise from light to rich. More light projects bluer color. Overcast and indirect sunlight seem to bring out the turquoise. At night looks amazing with minimal light also. Can see the bottom of pool no problem. I need to get more photos but this wet weather isn't helping. Here is a video I took last weekend. https://www.facebook.com/chuck.bacch...10467150430928
