We are about to break ground on a 14x28 SWG freeform pool with raised spa (18 inch high) and Baja shelf. PB is ordering tile now to make sure we have everything on time as the build needs it. We waited six months for permits, so I appreciate this. He has already ordered equipment and should have to this week. We have narrowed it down to a few choices and I would love input. We live in a 1960’s ranch house, nothing fancy. We have a drought tolerant native garden around the edges of the yard. Coping is pour in place grey concrete and so is patio. Spa will have tile on exterior. All of these are from NPT. I love the Opal Pearl but am worried it will be blinding in the sun. Next runner up is the 1x1 Ocean Mix. I want to use the stone look Yosemite tile on the outside of the pool but my husband thinks we should use the same tile as waterline. Any opinions?
