When deciding to start a pool renovation or build, there are many things you have to consider. From size and location, to the pool finish, water features and enhancements, and the overall design and look. One thing you may not have realized you can select is the color of your pool water. With Pebble Technology International’s® (PTI) Water Color Tool you can select your desired water color and pool texture to get a recommended pool finish to make your dream pool a reality.


Step 1: Choose Your Water Color

The first step in the process to choose the perfect finish and bring your pool water features to life is selecting your preferred water color.

  • Deep Dark Blue Water
  • Dark Blue Water
  • Medium Blue Water
  • Green Water
  • Teal Water
  • Light Blue Water

Step 2: Choose Your Finish Texture

Pebble pool finishes are designed to mimic nature by resembling riverbeds and picturesque oceans. Another benefit to their visual appeal is pebble offers a more durable and stain-resistant option than other pool finishes and creates a non-slip surface throughout your pool. Choose from PTI’s five texture options that are perfect for any outdoor space.
