The Best Tile For Your New Pool
Summer is in full swing. With sweltering temperatures and longer, sunnier days, there is only one surefire way to beat the heat: swimming. Public pools are overcrowded, and your neighbors’ pool is full of bugs, dirt, and who knows what else. You need your own pool in your own backyard. But how will you know where to start? The first step is deciding on the perfect pool tiles for your brand new oasis. Lori Maas, the Design Centers Manager at California Pools and Landscape, shares the basics of waterline tile and how to choose the best one for your needs.
Waterline tile is typically installed just below the water line of the pool but can be found in many other locations. If you choose to adorn your new pool with little magical waterfalls, waterline tile can be used on these raised walls as well as all other focal points of the pool.
Usually made of porcelain or glass, waterline tile is fabulous and functional. It looks amazing and it helps protect your pool from sun and chemical damage. It also makes for easier cleaning, and it comes in virtually any color you can think of. Looking for that mystical blue pool vibe? Blue waterline tile will enhance the color of the water and give it a more saturated look.
With hundreds of tiles to choose from, there is no shortage of options. Make your pool completely unique, and help your kiddos create a lifetime of memories under the sun.
