Pool

Freewheeling banter.....anything goes as long as it's clean and nothing to do with Mokes.

Pool

Post by Doug G » Fri Feb 27, 2015 20:58

No, not that Americal apology for billiards. :D

I once said that I would not build a pool at my house until the Govt here changed.

Well after 20 long hard years the Govt finally has changed. :o

The intention is to build a 20'0" x 12'0" x 4'6" deep infinity edge pool here:

and I am considering Diamond Brite "Midnight Blue' for the colour. Any suggestions?

It is a 60'0" cliff to a rocky foreshore.

Plus I want to swim in the evenings*.

Doug, I like the Darker Blues (not real dark though), IMO, they look 'best' as the water and bright sun tends to wash the clour out a bit.

The missus just had our pool repainted a couple of years back and of course that came with the agonising 'what colour?' We decided on a darker blue (it was fairly faded before) and at first, we thought we'd made a mistake, but once it was filled, it looked 'just right'.

<edit: I recon the Diamond Blue Super Bright or Midnight Blue>

Nigel, mate, please, there is a standing offer on the table mate, you know that, all you have to do is say the word. It's not our fault that you choose to live in a "cold, dark, wet and did I say cold here" place. I live in a hot, bright, not so wet, but humid place and there are days that I don't like either. I guess while you guys spend a lot of cash keeping warm, likewise, we spend zillions on keeping cool. I hate the heat, and actually look forward to the winter :)

Doug, when it's done mate, I'll have to pop over for a dip, just to make sure that it's done right.

There are 4 votes in the family (NB The old fart :mrgreen: has the final vote + veto).

So far there are two votes for Midnight Blue :D

No problem, the invitation is open. :D

I'll make sure the beer is extra cold, or do you prefer rum?

Yeah, Beer.

Rum is no good for that, it evaporates too quick.

Doug,
Can we all have a tile of own colour choice?
With an integral drinks holder, obviously.......
