  • Tips For Choosing an Aqualux Pool Interior

    If you’ve been thinking about buying an Albatross pool, have you considered which Aqualux pool colour to choose? Our strong, durable, long lasting Aqualux interior is available in a variety of colours and patterns, and they can make a huge difference in the appearance of your pool. The right colour can even provide you with some free pool heating! Our Aqualux options are on our Pool Colours page, but before you take a look at the range available, be sure to keep in mind some of the very important points below.

    Swimming Pool Colours

    Remember, the Water Will Affect the Colour

    Water itself is clear or close to it, but it filters light in a way that adds a blue tint. Even a pool with a white interior will look blue, and the more water the light has to pass through before it reaches your eyes, the bluer it will look. Lighter coloured pools will always look bluer in deeper areas. Pools with darker interiors will look flatter; the colour will be similar regardless of the depth. If being able to see the pool depth is a valuable safety feature for you, then you might consider opting for a lighter Aqualux option.

    Remember, Darker = Warmer

    Darker pool interiors absorb light and heat, and they can make your pool several degrees warmer on sunny days. If you live in an area where pool heating is always a boon, then a darker Aqualux colour is a good choice. If it gets so hot out that pool water can sometimes become uncomfortably warm, then opt for a light-coloured Aqualux option to help keep the water cooler.

    How Do You Want the Pool To Look?

    Aside from the concern of pool temperature, it all comes down to appearance. You might prefer a light coloured pool interior to harmonise with a light, cool decorating and landscaping theme or a darker colour for a dramatic, flat, modern look. Patterns that look a bit artificial on samples look fantastic underwater, adding richness to your pool’s appearance. There’s no doubt that pairing the right Aqualux colour with the right architecture and landscaping can make a real visual impact.

If you'd like to see a few pictures to give you an idea of what the Aqualux interior looks like in a number of different settings and landscapes, then take a moment to browse through our Gallery. We identify the featured Aqualux interior in each of our gallery pools. Just click on the photo to access a short article and information on the featured pool at the bottom of the page. Remember that the appearance of the pools in the pictures is affected by the time of day, direction of light and size of the pool, and that the appearance of the colours in the photos is affected by the camera, the photo editing software and your computer's settings. Actual installations will not necessarily look just like the pictures, but they should at least give you an idea of what to expect.
