In mosaics for swimming pools we have a wide range of colors that make it possible to mix tonalities, giving any project a creative and unique aspect.
The color of the water will depend on several factors, the color of the material used, the depth of the pool and the amount of light that falls on it. Although as a general rule it will tend to bluish colors, and this is due to a physical phenomenon called Rayleigh scattering. This effect increases with the amount of water. In deep pools we see a darker blue color. On the contrary, when the amount of water does not exceed 2 ft we do not perceive this effect and we see the transparent water.
In addition to the depth, the light and the environment directly affect the final tone of the water. If the pool is in a space that receives a lot of sunlight, the color will be lighter and if there is hardly any light, the water will appear darker. We must take into account if the pool is inside or outside to see the amount of light it receives and know the elements that surround it, as they will have a direct relationship with the final tone. For example, in pools surrounded by vegetation we will see the water with a greenish tone.
Therefore, Rayleigh Dispersion, depth, light and environment will be key in the color of the water, but the color chosen in the mosaic will be very important to qualify the different shades of water blue, achieving surprising versions. Remember that the appearance of the water will change depending on the state of the sky, the time of day, the amount of light, the season or the depth of the pool.
The Bahama Nassau collection is a mixture of two blues, resulting in a wide range of blues in the color of water from the most intense with the darkest blues to the lightest. Producing that the water looks very refreshing. Blue is the mosaic most traditionally used for pool lining, as it achieves a refreshing water tone, inviting you to enter and exit the water. Blue is associated with tranquility, relaxation. Recommended in: housing pools, homes or hotels.
According to the design, shape or measurements, we recommend not using those that have rectangular pieces in pools with irregular shapes and that tend to form sharp curves. The rectangular pieces will be difficult at the time of installation.
The Bahama Nassau collection is made of special glass for swimming pools, we recommend consulting the technical sheet of each mosaic before making the purchase and thus, verify that the product meets the requirements and use that you wish to give.
