Here’s ours - they just did startup today so I’m not sure if the color will change much at all, but we love it!

Blue granite pebblesheen. Lots of pics, different lighting and close up vs overall shots. Hope this is helpful to someone!

Ours is also Blue Granite Pebble Sheen. Here are a few photos from empty (steps), filling, and then before (green) and after (blue) a metal sequestrant.

I started this thread (thanks @kimkats)to help with the toughest decision of the process for me (other than deciding to dig the hole in the first place). I went with StoneScapes Mini-pebble Tropics Blue. This color includes some Abalone Shell in its standard recipe. I did not add anything extra.

I will say that I think the colors I see throughout the day are a lot of reflection. The majority of the day it’s clear and crisp and a good medium blue, in the late afternoon I get a lot of tree reflection and, well trees are green so I can see them at different angles. In the evening it is exactly what I was looking for. A deep rich blue.

This is a sports pool at 4’/5’-6”/4’-6”. Pics are at approx. 7:30pm, central Texas.

Pebbles Sheen Blue Granite... 2 weeks after fillup. I'm having trouble getting the colors to look "true" in the pictures. It's honestly not as bright blue as it appears in the "deep end" picture, but it's blue enough for us, and we like it. :)

So I am one of the oddballs who didn't go with a blue color. Again this is only a few days old. If it changes color significantly after 28 days I will post an update.

14,000 gallon pool, deep end is 6'. Pebble Tec PebbleSheen in "Irish Mist". Nothing mixed in.
