Finally getting around to posting some finish pics. I tried to get some different depths and sunlight since that really makes a difference. Deep end is 8 feet, shallow end is 3.5 to 4.5 feet and tanning ledge is 14 inches. Finish is Diamond Brite Super Blue.

This one was early morning, 730am:

Our Aqua Blue Pebblesheen pool was finally finished last weekend and we looooove how it turned out. For reference, it is 5 feet at the deepest point near the ledge. The first photo is the day after filing, the rest are from today at one week.

Here is our pool finish....it is Wet Edge Primera Stone Starfall. Had to wait a bit for it to be in stock, but we are happy with it. It keeps the pool around 84 degrees all the time. There is some blotchiness, which I think is not going away. I can take more pictures of anybody is interested.

I'm cutting and saving some pool finish colors on my desktop. Here is a pool build from a few years ago on this site that used salt and pepper mini pebble, a color I never see. Build is here:

Here is my addition for Super Sheen Mystic Blue. The shelf is around 13", the shallow end is 4', and the deep end is 8'. These are all in full sun and less than a week after startup, so the color may change slightly. I also have 15 lbs of abalone that was hand broadcast. I've included a spa pic as well.

What is the name of the iridescent tiles in the pool?!? They are stunning!

CL Industries Crystal Stones Smooth Aqua Blue (their version of mini pebble). No glass or abalone. It feels SO much softer than NPT mini pebble after being on both. We couldn’t decide between NPT Stonescapes mini french gray, stonescapes mini tahoe blue, or this one. So happy with our choice! PM me if you’d like more pictures. I have plenty of videos as well.

We have Stonescapes Midnight Blue Puerto Rico Blend Small. Sun shelf has hand tossed abalone shell. Pics taken at high noon.

We waffled between Midnight Blue, Tahoe Blue, and Tropics Blue, but in the end we're very happy with how it turned out. A nice deep blue!

Depth is 4' near sun shelf/spa moving to 5' at opposite end.

Tile on steps is NPT Lumi Blue and waterline tile is Stratus Gray 2" x 4" (Subway Series) Glass Pool Tile by Artistry in Mosaics. Shout out to @Whiskeyfox for posting on his build thread and the side chat to answer some questions about it.

Note: Pool just got filled a few days ago and still in the brushing phase; however water is starting to clear up nicely.

Hello, so we just got Aqua cool
Mini pebble with glass beads . I'm a bit confused , it looks green chemicals are balanced , it's been about a week. The plaster seems off white/tan. Every picture I've seen of aqua cool is a light blue . Does it take a few weeks to lighten ?

Just finished our pool and I know when I was researching it was hard to find photos of Pebble Sheen Turtle Bay, so I thought I’d post our pool here. Could not be happier with the color.
