I really like the dark color pools. I like the Slate one but what are the cons. Do darker pools create more algae?
benita: I really like the dark color pools. I like the Slate one but what are the cons. Do darker pools create more algae? Take longer to heat up? I’m using a salt water system. Will that hurt the plaster color? In the planning phase.
luke: Stay away from any plaster that is darker colored. More scale chances. The finish will never look like the sample. It doesn’t heat up faster. Only dark colors I would do are pebble. Start your research with Wet Edge. Your pool finish resource. http://wetedgetechnologies.com/
benita: Thanks. Just watched the video. Definitely helps on pool color. I don’t have any trees at all in my backyard and complete sunlight so helps me to be realistic on what my color will be. Ron Savage I will have to check them out.
luke: Ron Savage Middle grade finishes. Anyone can buy them and apply them. Wet Edge and PebbleTec you have to be licensed to install them. Diamond brite is not a wet edge product. Wet Edge’s quartz product is luna quartz. Ron Savage as far as I understand Wet Edge Luna Quartz is 100% quartz.
saul: I have a dark plaster and love it!
benita: Can I see pics? In shade and sun and the color of your plaster please
saul: I went with pebbletec and the color is turtle bay
benita: Love the pebble look!
debra: Not sure about the algea but a darker pool will heat faster.
kimber: I’m my experience color does not affect temperature
ricky: Stay on top of your chemicals. Colored plaster tends show more blemishes if Chems are not properly balanced. Focus on mastering your chemical test kit
benita: I love the dark colors but concerned about the scale chances and not getting the color i want cause the pool is 16 X 32 and 3ft to 6ft. Does dark show better with bigger pools. The depth?
