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 ?

I love your waterline tile. What is it called?
Thanks! I am honestly not sure! It isn’t listed anywhere on our building specs and it has been a few years since they installed it. Sorry! I’m happy to send a close up picture if you want a better look at it.

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.

Did you use Stonescapes Aqua blue pattern for all three - Mini Pebbles, Touch of Glass and Puerto Rico Blend? What brand of cobalt beads did you use? I would love to recreate this color.

Beautiful! We haven't had any helpful suggestions or options from the pool company because we are building and had an incentive with the builder towards a pool when we signed out contract. So we had to use their chosen pool builder.
We basically had to pick everything at the design consultation for the home. That was in December.
I have chosen aqua white mini pebble touch of glass, but was interested in the puerto rico blend as well. No one has talked to us about options for the glass what so ever. I have had to do my research myself to get to this point. I told them I wanted glass, so they have it listed as touch of glass, but never was asked how much glass or what kind.
We are spending a lot of money on extras beyond the incentive allowance, so I want it to be right. We are also doing porcelain pavers for the decking. Your pool is beautiful!

I love your pool color. I’m at the stage of finalizing a plaster color and I think I’ll go with radiant fusion. How do you have a micro fusion with glass? Is it radiant fusion or is it the micro fusion level with added glass? I hope my question makes sense.
