Your external environment

Choosing the color of your pool shell is essential. And for good reason: it’s one of the first things you’ll see when you enter your outdoor space. To create a harmonious look, it’s best to match the color of your home, woodwork and terrace.

Pool safety

Depending on the hull color you choose, the color of your pool water will not be the same. For example, if you choose a white shell, you’ll get azure-blue pool water. Conversely, if you choose a quartz color, your pool water will be more mint blue.

To ensure the safety of bathers, we recommend that you do not opt for darker colors that will prevent you from seeing the depth of the pool. Prefer colors that remain in a light tone, especially if you have young bathers in your household.

Keep in mind, however, that this gap remains relatively modest. In fact, the maximum difference observed between the water temperature of a clear pool and that of a darker pool. is around 2°C.
