Darker Plaster Color

Postby Dennise » Thu 15 Jun, 2006 22:35

We have an inground gunnite pool which needs resurfacing. We like the looks of a darker plaster such as grey. Pool contractor reccomends white plaster as darker surfaces tend to fade/mottle. Has anyone had experience with a darker plaster such as grey? Pros/Cons compared with standard white. Photos? How much fading and when. Thanks for any help.

colored plasters do have mottling which may become more apparent over time. when choosing a plaster color you are really choosing what color water you want to see. a reputable contractor should be able to show you dark pools that are new and several years old
