SOME FACTORS TO CONSIDER BEFORE CHOOSING YOUR POOL COLOR
Because lighter pool colors reflect light, debris is more visible than in darker–colored pools. If your pool is surrounded by trees and plants that shed debris, you may want to consider a darker color instead.
Lighter colors will appear more aquamarine when surrounded by green–colored landscaping. And green surroundings can give darker–colored pools a more lagoon–like, green hue.
White and light–colored decking often result in lighter–looking pool colors, while darker–colored patios will make the pool color appear darker.
If your home is close to the pool, its color can influence your water color. For example, a yellow home reflecting into the blue water can give the water a green appearance at times (yellow + blue = green).
The deeper the water, the darker blue it appears. Just like ocean water is lighter near the shore and darker as it deepens, the shallow end of a pool will appear lighter than the deep end.
A pool in the shade will appear darker than the same colored pool in the sunlight. If trees or your home will permanently shade your pool, you will want to take that into consideration.
