Fully Tiled Pools
Why have pool tiles been used for so long?
Pool Tiles are the pinnacle of pool interiors, durable & elegant.
Ceramic / Porcelain pool tiles are a high-end pool interior finish that have been used since the days of the Roman Empire.
Pool tiles have the best durability of any other pool interior surface, so throughout the ages tiles have continued to be the must have interior of every swimming pool.
Can my pool be tiled?
If you have a concrete pool shell then congratulations the answer is yes, regardless of your current pool surface the preparation work needed to tile your pool can be done.
Swimming Pool Waterline Tiling
Tiles can be placed on the top of the pool along the “Waterline” or the whole pool surface can also be “Fully Tiled”.
If you are considering doing waterline tiles with a rendered or painted pool interior, then you can contrast the colour of the interior with darker tiles around the top of the pool, a darker colour tile is recommended as it will help your interior stand out giving your pool a more modern effect by defining the edges.
Questions and Answers
Does a pool need tiles around the top?
Known as waterline tiles because the tiles surround the top of the pool on the water edge.
Waterline tiles are recommended around the top of the pool, this is because of what we call the "coffee mug effect".
Your swimming pool is filled with water that changes its chemical balance constantly, leaving a water stain around the top of the pool walls.
If you don't have waterline tiles then floating dirt and leaves tend to stick to the sides of the pool leaving a darker stain around the top of your swimming pool because of the absorbency and texture of the rendered interior of the pool.
Ceramic/porcelain waterline tiles substantially reduce this effect, helping your pool look newer & cleaner for longer whilst also reducing the frequency to need a clean, this resistance also applies to fully tiled swimming pools.
How long do swimming pool tiles last?
Fully tiled pools have a reputation for having lifespans in excess of over 30 years!
We have renovated many pool throughout the years, and only a couple of times had we ever needed to re-tile a fully tiled pool, this should serve as a testament to how long they last!
Can my pool tiles be repaired?
Aside from renovating tiled swimming pools, in some instances we can also repair the pool tiling and delay needing a complete renovation.
Usually when pool tiles need repairing it is a sign of a bigger problem behind the tiles, repairing the tiles can delay the deterioration process.
We have a great collection of pool tiles from jobs over the years so if you do not have any spare tiles, we might be able to save the day!
