Techo-Bloc
Could this have been Inca in Baja Beige? In 2014 we are adding a coral sands to the collection. http://www.techo-bloc.com/products/list-of-products/slabs/inca

Unfortunately pictures can be misleading. Your better off taking a sample to your local dealer, and compare. Sorry

The pool is in NJ. The coping is Grey Indiana Limestone which is comfortable to step and sit on in hot weather

pavers, and other suggestions - I'm having a pool restoration/renovation done, and trying to decide on so many things. My pool is a block wall that is going to be made into a solid concrete. I'm considering a liner that is fairly new, and is not the typical blue. It's called "sand pebble" by loop loc, or vynal also makes the same one. It gives the water a more natural look, where when looking into the water when it's crystal clear, instead of seeing a blue liner at the bottom, the water instead just takes on a more natural clean ocean look. I'm doing away with the fiberglass steps, and having poured concret steps built, and trying to decide on a design for them.. 2nd step being a small ledge, tanning ledge?? also deciding on a sheer decent off of a wall that could be built next to the long side.. jets? I know there are also swim jets, and little volcanoes coming out of the shallow end. can one have too many things in the pool? what are your thoughts on this. ALSO.. I am also trying to decide on pavers and can't make up my mind. I've looked at Techo bloc.. could you tell me which one is being used with this pool, and the color as well. thank you!

It sounds like you are taking on a VERY EXTENSIVE PROJECT. Please thoroughly research your contractors qualifications. I haven't seen too many liners installed in block or concrete pools with great results!, especially when trying to incorporate poured stairs. Also be cautious as to how many options you try to incorporate into your design......simple is often times much more elegant. The pager used around this pool is the Techo Bloc Inca series in a discontinued color "sahara". They still make the paver, it is under "slabs" in there catalogue but they have three new colors. Hope this helps Good Luck.

Thank you so much for getting back to me! yes.. extensive is NOT the word, lol.. as far as research, oh boy,,, I do alot of that, thank you! I feel very good about this contractor, he has taken me to so many projects that he has completed, and ones that he is in the process of, so that I can see structurely how it will be done. My block was was originally built in the late 80's, and is very sound, I've heard more then steel. Yes, gunite is much better, but it's not what I have. I've taken many photo's of liner pools with poured steps, if you'd like I could send one to you. Of course, it takes on more of a gunite look because one doesn't see the solid, fiberglass step looking very different from the rest of the pool. After the steps are completed, the liner company will come to my home to take all measurements, and the liner is custom made to fit exactly. Not all, but some of the liners have a special texture in the same print, for covering the steps, because it can get slippery if the homeowner doesn't keep their chemical levels just right. I've looked at the Inca, and like it very much! It comes in a blue/gray and apears very much like bluestone. As far as quality, would you say that Techo is better then the other big brands on the market, ex: cambridge, unilock?
thank you again!
