Before You Dive In
The choices you make now, will be the ones you live with for decades. It is important to look at some swimming pools before you make your decision.
Not all swimming pools are the same
It may be easier to go with something less expensive, but remember a fiberglass pool doesn’t have the same resale value as a cement one. They also don’t last as long and typically have higher maintenance costs.

The color of a swimming pool had a huge effect on the overall appearance. Some colors can even make the water feel warmer.
While the water is clear, when sunlight is filtered through it creates a blue tint. So, even if the interior of your pool was white, it would sill look blue. The more water the light passes through, as in the deeper end of pool, the darker blue it will look. Which can be a great safety feature.
If you are thinking about a darker color for the interior of the pool, it will look flatter and have that dramatic modern feel. Also, the color looks the same at all depths. They also absorb more heat, making your pool warmer.
