We remodelled our small, urban backyard and decided to go with a black pool liner, rather than the more traditional blue. It was one of the best design decisions we ever made. It was the landscape designer who suggested the black liner. We were reluctant at first but decided to go ahead and trust him (after testing that, yes indeed, you can see to the bottom of a black pool, by filling a black plastic bucket with water and sticking our feet in it:) ).Style-wise its amazing, creating an integrated,natural look as opposed to sticking out like a sore thumb. And yes, it certainly cuts down on the heating bill. Large granite boulders were used as a diving rock instead of the traditional diving board. The look was completed with simple plant materials and cedar decking weathering now to gray. Highly recommend a black pool liner to anyone considering a pool install or remodel.
