Does pool tile change the colour of the water?
Yes, pool tiles can change the colour of pool water. Light-coloured pool tiles reflect more light and make your pool look brighter, while dark pool tiles absorb light and make your pool look darker.
This is called “light refraction” and affects how the pool appears depending on the type of tile you use.
On top of that, it’s important to remember that the colour of your pool can be affected by different outdoor elements such as,
- The colour of the sky at any given time
- Shadowing from trees and buildings
- The depth of the pool
The surrounding colours in terms of coping, paving and even your home’s exterior paint can also influence the in the pool’s tone of colour.
