What is Pebble Technology?
Pebble Technology (Pebble Tec) is the originator of the aggregate or pebble finish that goes inside pools. It is an alternative product to using plaster or vinyl liner. Pebble Tec is a natural material that they mine all over the world from rivers. It is not crushed, but dug whole and has a smooth rounded pebble finish. Pebble Tec is a product that we love to use because it enhances the beauty of the space and it increase the life span of the pool. For instance, a plaster finished pool might last 8-10 years, but a Pebble Tec pool can last up to 25 years.
There are four main categories of Pebble Tec to choose from:
Pebble Tec Original: a finish with a larger pebble, ranging in all different colors.
Pebble Sheen: a smaller pebble and smother finish (most popular according to Pebble Tec).
Pebble Fina: the smoothest aggregate finish available.
Pebble Brilliance: a blend of vibrant glass beads and natural stone aggregate that delivers a uniquely brilliant water color.
How do you determine what type of Pebble Tec finish to use?
When answering this question, we think a lot about how the pool will complement the existing home architecture and how the owner would like to feel when they look out at their pool. Pebble Tec has a myriad of colors to choose from that will help evoke different pool "moods". Some clients would like to be reminded of a tropical paradise when they look at their pool, and some, a deep blue/green lagoon. Of course there are many colors and options in between those, all of which can be found on the Pebble Tec website for your perusing.
