The choice between a darker or lighter pool liner ultimately depends on personal preference, the specific characteristics of your pool and the desired aesthetic effect.

There are benefits and drawbacks to both options.

Darker Pool Liner

A darker pool liner such as Bahama or Dark Blue may absorb more sunlight and heat, which can help to warm up the water in your pool. This can be particularly beneficial if you live in a cooler climate or if you want to extend your swimming season, however the difference is marginal.

A darker liner such as Antique or Kiama creates a dramatic and luxurious look in your pool, with the water a sparkling crystal blue.

On the other hand, if your pool is in a shaded position or the day is overcast a darker pool liner can appear colder and less inviting.

Lighter Pool Liner

A lighter coloured liner such as Cayman or Light Blue can help to create a brighter, more inviting atmosphere in your pool area.

Sandstone liner makes the water a clear aquamarine, giving your pool area a tropical feel.

However if your pool is close to a tree that drops leaves regularly, you will notice every leaf and spend more time trying to achieve a pristine look.

Coral Sand, Pacific and other light patterned liners will still give you the effect but debris won’t stand out as much against the pattern.

Most Popular Colours

The mid-blue is very popular with Maui being the patterned liner we install in approximately 65% of the renovations we undertake.  It has all the advantages of the lighter and darker colours, appearing inviting even on overcast days.

Ultimately, the choice between a darker or lighter pool liner is a matter of personal preference and depends on your specific needs and design goals.

It’s important to consult with a pool professional to achieve the desired result.
