Black Marble vs Black Pearl Pebble Tec

Posted by hopefulnovice (My Page) on

Hi -
We are struggling to decide between Black Marble and Black Pearl Pebble Tec for our pool remodel. We're looking for a sort of New England pond look. Flagstone coping & terrace, very rural/natural country location.
Anyone have any advice? Have not been able to find a single pool to visit in our area with either of these finishes, and it is so hard to tell what it all looks like from pictures on the web.
Thanks for any thoughts!

I will say you will get a much more mottled surface from a black marble then the pebble. Though some like that "old" look. Pebble tec is much rougher then the marble, but should last a lot longer. Try the Pebble sheen as well which is much smoother.

RE: Black Marble vs Black Pearl Pebble Tec

Which one did you end up going with (and what was the reason that tipped the decision?). I'm learning toward Turtle Bay, but also looking at Emerald Bay, maybe Ocean Blue/Midnight Blue -- but I just saw a gorgeous Black Pearl photo. I love the lagoony look. But don't want to be too close to a pond look. Which of those is lighter (more blue/green water than black)? Are you happy you went dark? Would love to see photos!
