Pebble sheen- any pics? prism blue, blue granite, aqua blue

jackie_gal_flJuly 11, 2006

Hey everbody. I'm trying to decide between pebble tec and pebble sheen. I'm trying to pick my favorite pebble sheen currently. Any Pics of Prism Blue, Blue Granite, or Aqua Blue? Also looking for opinions on tec v.s. sheen.

Thank you!

Here's an old picture of my Prism Blue. We went with the sheen because it's smoother than the tec. I think all the colors you're looking for are beautiful. I also love, love, love the Ocean Blue. Might have gone with that if we'd seen any pools in person that had it. But we do love this color.

Blue Granite Pebble Sheen. We are very happy with the sheen - the tec was just too rough for our liking.

We have Ocean Blue Pebblesheen and absolutely love it - not just the color but the finish. We saw a Pebble Tec pool in person. While Tec was smooth, I wasn't sure I would be happy with the bumps, so I put in the order for Sheen.

Of the 3 colors you mentioned, be aware that only Prism Blue comes with the seashells already in the mix (makes for extra sparkle).

Good luck
Sandy

Thanks everybody for your pics! Both of the finishes are beautiful! This is gonna be a tough choice! Now does any one have an Aqua blue pebblesheen pool?

Also,for the pebbletec, does anyone have Jade,carribbean blue, or Sandybeach?

All opinions on anything-sheen or tec- are always welcome!

Thank you again for your help! :-)

Wow! cjmdwyer, that's a beautiful color! Very cute dog too, by the way! i'm not sure if the aqua is too bright for me though. Your pool also looks great with the lights at night.*sigh* descisions, descisions.....
Do you have any other color recommendations?

Where are you in FL, florida gal? If you're in the Tampa Bay area, there are some pools that you can look at.

Hey Florida Gal, I'm a Florida gal too, in the SW on the Gulf Coast.
We too are trying to choose a pebble finish color for our renovation.
Its by Florida Pearl Exposed Aggregate, anyone have that brand?
I think I have ruled out the black finish (Kahena), I have looked at lots of dark finish pools pics and the dark blues are nice, but I don't care for the black I have seen., (unless they are lagoon type pools (which ours is not).
My other color choices are: Bay Pearl (aqua with earthy color pebbles) Florida Pearl (white with earthy color pebbles) Shoreline (beige with earthy pebbles) Evening Pearl (grey with earthy pebbles) and Silver Pearl (white with greys and white pebbles)
I'm just having trouble visualizing it all together... the tile, finish and deck. But I am sure it will be so much better than what it was!
The deck will be textured concrete with color applied.
We also did a change order and added demo of the lanai tile so it and the deck will all be same. They finished with the chippers today, yea, the noise drove me nuts!

jackie_gal_fl and florida_gal:
are you the same person or two different people?
Just wondering, the follow up posts have confused me since the original post.

Laurel,
I am Florida gal, and my 12 yr old daughter is Jackie - she is now as obsessed as DH and I about these choices!! Sometimes she doesn't log in on her name and uses mine...Anyway, We are in Palm Bch County on the east coast.
Our pool was dug last Friday, steel formed Sat and Sun, waiting for our first inspection. It is really hard to picture all of the colors together. OUr PB was pushing Hawaiian Blue from Florida Gem, but when we saw a live pool, it looked like a blue roof tarp!!! We may upgrade to P Tec, waiting for the upcharge quote...

I know what you mean about the blue roof tarp color! We have 2 on our roof, the roofers are to start anyday now, but can't be soon enough for me!
I just hope this storm season is kind to us all.
( We are in Lee County, between Ft Myers and Naples, the city of Bonita Springs)
I'll post pictures after I read how to do it, or maybe wait to do before and after?
The work in progress isn't so exciting unless its yours! LOL

Here is Blue Granite with hand seeded shells. I remember making the hard decision. Ask the company if you can see some pools in person. BTW My pool looked green for the first couple weeks and then settled down to this color. We love it, but would have loved prism, aqua or ocean too- all good colors, some more pricey than others

Here's another of Blue Granite...When I was trying to decide, I really wanted a color with more blue and no green, and I am very happy with our choice. (BTW, I was a little panicked as it was filling, because if was VERY green, but after a few days, the water turned this awesome blue)...

Good luck!

dede711: By posting your pictures you helped us make up our minds. We have decided to go with Blue Granite. I will be holding my breath for a few weeks after the pool is filled. We are looking for a blue vs. the green. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Cubixs,

Good luck with your pool fill and remember that when it first fills, it will be green! Do not panic! :)

Please post pictures!!

oops do-over, here is prism blue early in the morning:

sun:

I love my Prism Blue it changes tones. Sometimes it looks teal blue, or a smokey grey blue, in the evening its almost cobalt looking. And the shells look so pretty in the sun.

We're looking at Florida Gem exposed aggregate pool finishes and want a very blue pool. Does anyone have pic's of Hawaiian, Sky Blue, Blue Gem, or Aqua Gem finishes?

Would LOVE to know if you found pics of the sky blue - the company even makes a DOUBLE sky blue that only contractors know about - hardly any black specs, still a white background so it doesn't look fake and its really really blue. I have'nt seen pics, but may take their word for it. Let me nkow, shellseeker, if you have made a decision or have pics that you can send me! --Becky
