Hi, I'm a little torn deciding between mini Pebble aqua cool vs aqua blue. I have a big oak tree in back so we will have a lot of shady areas for the pool. My coping is off white (sandstone) and water tile is attached. We're trying to decide which one would be best to go with by tomorrow, which doesn't clash with the water tiles. We want the water color to be turquoise blue, not to light and not to dark.

Any suggestions?!?!

We went with Aqua-cool as we were seeking the same look. We got a chance to see them both in person as our builder had done homes for neighbors in our area and it was really the only way we knew for sure what we wanted. We are very happy with our decision. I also have a build thread in my signature with more detail if you like.

I'll definitely do that Kim. I don't know much more about our finish other than it being NPT Stonescapes in Mini "Aqua-cool." You can tell that it has a white base plaster with black gray and blue speckles. We did add some Abalone for sparkle and wish we added the full bag our builder had suggested, especially since he didn't upcharge for it!

We were thinking of adding the abalone shells too or the touch of glass to the finish. Still trying to find pictures to decide.

Touch of glass, if that is a real glass product, it might be better if it achieves the same effect as Abalone(Bling!!). I believe I read somewhere on here a while back about someone experiencing some rust with their Abalone, maybe there are different grades of it- "Cheap" vs. Good?
