Hello, and thank you for your inquiry. This color is known as Periwinkle, and is a custom blend of exposed aggregate that we have mixed locally. It would be closest in color to a color by Super Blue Diamond Brite by Southern Grouts and Mortars.

Do you keep this pool open all year round? - Is this concrete, vinyl liner or fiberglass? How do you keep from freezing and thawing?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Would you mind sharing how much it costs to keep it heated through the winter and do you use it during that time or is it heated only enough to prevent freezing? Thank you n

Hello, and thanks for your question. The pool is heated throughout the winter for usage, not just merely for freeze protection. We were the designers and builders of the pool and not the homeowner, so we don't have the exact answer as to the ongoing utility costs. We can tell you that the cost to operate will vary depending on the area of the country, as fuel and electricity costs vary from region to region.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cathy Lara added this to 19 Spectacular Pools Near and Far
This wintry concrete pool image conveys what it must feel like to be a polar bear in the Arctic. Fortunately, a combination of gas heaters, an automatic safety cover and freeze protection keep the pool and swimmers from freezing.
