Why do you want a pool?
“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”
Loran Eisely, anthropologist
As humans we have always been drawn
to the magic of water. Our ancient
ancestors had to seek out water to
survive. Even now we are unconsciously
drawn to glossy objects, with recent
research with adults and young
children testing the hypotheses that the
preference for glossy surfaces stems
from an innate preference for fresh water
as a valuable resource. Your desire for a
pool simply shows how in tune you are
with our universal human needs.

"WHY does my pool look blue"
Why does my pool look blue? Look at a glass of tap water and it is clear and colourless. And yet the water in pools and the sea appear to be shades of blue. Why? It’s all about the light. Sunlight is a spectrum of colours, through the rainbow from red to violet. When the light hits an object, some of the colours will be absorbed and some scattered. For example, an apple looks red because it absorbs all the other colours in the light and scatters only red. Water absorbs different wavelengths of sunlight to different degrees, with the longest wavelengths with the lowest energy being absorbed first. Red is the quickest to be absorbed, then orange then yellow. The blue end of the spectrum travels further through water before being absorbed. The colours disappear underwater in the same order. The sea seems to be blue because it absorbs all the other colours and only the blue light is scattered or reflected. A glass of water is too small an amount for the reflection of the blue light to be obvious, but when you fill a white bath with water you will see a blue tint. Clean water always appears blue, and deeper water appears more deeply blue as more of the other colours of the spectrum are absorbed. At what depth underwater do colours disappear?
Yellow 10.7m – 13.7m
Green 21.3m – 22.
