SELECTING A COLOUR
When making a decision on your new pool surface, there are certain aspects you must take into consideration. Pool water textures & maintenance are affected by a number of different variants, these can be both natural and artificial.
Natural variants include most things usually out of human control:
- The weather: Pool colours can vary depending on the conditions your pool is subject to. A pool colour can be varied on the amount of sun it will receive. Indoor, well shaded or fully shaded pools will differ from pools that have full sun
- Surrounds: If you have heavy foliage surrounding your pool this can slightly throw out lighter colours towards greener/aqua water texture. It also may mean you will have constant leaves falling in, making maintenance and cleaning more necessary.
Artificial variants include most things humans have effect on:
- Lighting: These days pools have high powered LED lights that are able to change water effects at night.
- Waterline: Although the majority of the water colour comes from the pool interior itself, how dark or light a waterline tiles is can also have an effect on the final water colour.
- Paving: Although paving won’t generally change the water colour, its can change the aesthetics of the pool itself. Its best to choose a coping/paver that will blend in with your interior colour and surrounds.
- Pool size: the depth, width and length of your pool will also affect the final water texture. Shallow areas will slightly differ from areas that are deeper.
