    Re: South Florida Pool & Outdoor Living - STARTUP PHASE

    What would you say the angle of the sun is in that picture?

    I really like this tile. We've gone with the same tile in the sea green for our pool.

    I've been trying to understand how it looks under various lighting conditions. For instance, at dusk or under low light conditions, does it appear less iridescent, more blue?

    Great question. The face of the spa faces SE and this was late afternoon sun so I'd say SW position. I actually wish the spa wasn't Square to our house as a direct on view looks very blue and very flat. The side of our spa that faces southwest always looks like this picture tho. It holds its iridescence really well at night as well. Subtle light reflects off it well and brings out the color. Also we have this tile inside our spa and it looks great with the spa light on. I'll see if I have any other pictures.

    Re: South Florida Pool & Outdoor Living - STARTUP PHASE

    Here is a good pic that shows the NE side. It's color and iridescence is similar to the SW side almost at all times. As you can see the face (SE) looks more flat blue without the angled sunlight.



    And here's a recent shot of our step markers. Again in late afternoon sun.

    Very nice shots of that tile! We love how it looks almost like it's on fire when the sun hits it just right...even underwater. You have very good taste sir!!

    Very nice. In hindsight I wish we did a blue waterline. You are using the glass tile for step markers? I would have never thought they looked like that under water from the dry pic. And what finish brand/color are you doing?

    Gorgeous tile... I used some of that kind of tile for accents when we redid our master bath.

    I have 10 sheets left over. I'm dying to tie it into some accent wall in our covered patio or an ODK countertop or something.

    I'm doing a double row/ribbon on my Baja, steps, & benches. Finish will be Pebble Tec Pebble Sheen, Blue Surf (I'm pretty set on that color) I like Blue Granite too. I'm planning on adding glass beads & possibly shimming seas too.
    It's a little nerve racking making all of these decisions!

    Re: South Florida Pool & Outdoor Living - STARTUP PHASE

    That's great. I love blue surf. But our kids have really sensitive skin on their feet. And even the sheen with rough them up bad. If we're still around when it's time to refinish our pool 10+ years from now, that's my pick. Or our next build, which naturally will be so easy
