FAQs

What is Skypebble® made of?

Skypebble® is 100% natural Quartz pebbles (over 99% Pure Silica) which, when mixed with cement, forms an aesthetically pleasing interior lining to concrete swimming pools.

Is Skypebble® foreign owned?

No, Skypebble® is wholly owned by Australians.

Is Skypebble® susceptible to algae growth?

No more than any other pool lining. Algae will grow on any surface (even smooth glass) but, due to the hardness of the Skypebble® finish, it can be treated with strong chemicals or scrubbed without any damage to the pool lining.

What is the most popular Skypebble® colour?

Skypebble® Arctic White pebble, has the reputation of being the purest naturally occurring white pebble in the world. On its own, it produces a beautiful light blue colouring, and when mixed with blue glass beads (Marina Blue) a stunning mid-blue water colour, or with our exclusive pigment (Hawaiian Blue) an even deeper blue finish which looks particularly inviting.

What colour water will I get with Skypebble®?

Swimming pool water can be either varying shades of blue or green, and virtually every shade can be achieved with Skypebble® by adding colouration to the cement matrix, or by adding such things as glass beads or coloured chips. Water colour is also somewhat dependent on such things as pool surrounds, time of day, sky colour, chemical balance and depth of water so that actual water colour tends to vary quite dramatically throughout the day.

Is technical support available for the Skypebble® range of products?
Yes - simply call us on 1300 858 319 or contact us through this site.
Where does Skypebble® originate?

Skypebble® pebbles come from the South Island of New Zealand where they are graded, washed and bagged (packaged) before being imported into Australia.

Is Skypebble® susceptible to staining?

No. Because the pebbles are natural, with very high Silica content, they are impervious to staining in a swimming pool environment.

Do you need waterline tiles with a Skypebble® interior lining?

Waterline tiles are not required with Pebblesheen® or Skypebble® Original, but are recommended with Pebblefina™ (previously Pebbleglaze®). Many customers do prefer to have waterline tiles with all of the pebble sizes.

What size pebbles are available in the Skypebble® range?

Three sizes are available. Skypebble® Original (approx. 2-4mm pebble size), Pebblesheen® (approx. 1-2mm) or Pebblefina™ (previously Pebbleglaze®) (approx 0.6-1mm).

How can I order Skypebble® for my pool?
Skypebble® is readily available throughout Australia, and it is simply a matter of ordering the product through your pool builder or renovation company. Owner-builders can order through their interior lining applicator, calling us on 1300 858 319, or contact us through this site.
