Hi everyone! New to the forum!
We are in the process of building a pool and have decided on the stonescapes aqua white finish. We are having a hard time deciding if we want the touch of glass option. Is adding glass worth the cost? We would be looking at and additional $1800 for it.
Also, does it make the pool darker? We prefer a lighter color and may decide against if if this is the case. Would it be an option to add all clear glass beads instead of colored ones?
Thank you so much for your input!

We have that finish and got the Puerto Rico blend beads. It was only $400 more. I like seeing the occasional sparkle. They definitely don’t make it darker. If I had to pay $1800 I would say it’s not worth it.
