Hoo-boy. Tons. Pools, let's see; Swimfan, Cruel Intensions, Dark City...

I know David Mullen has included pools and gyms in several of his movies; both in The Quiet, a gym in Astronaut Farmer...

Maybe it would help if we knew what kind of look you were going for.

Well then maybe you shouldn't! :P Those examples went more for the rich/stylish look often with haze and strong shafts of light through high windows...

Maybe take a look at Pride.

The Last Picture Show would certainly be desaturated, with muted colors.

Also at the other end (I realize, not exactly what you have asked for, but possibly useful to see how they have used color with an indoor pool), there is the Kieslowski, Blue.
