retile a swimming pooL

Postby Jowily » Mon 01 Dec, 2008 08:52

my pool has the pebble tech finish and I hate the glass tiles we originally
picked for the pool but I want to remove the glass tils (1" squares) and replace them with 5 x 6 tiles . they are 6 x 6 and will have to be cut down but my question is the grout line between the tile and the pebble tech HOW SHOULD I REMOVE THAT GROUT LINE WITHOUT DAMAGEING THE PEBBLE TECK SURFACE? A DIAMOND SAW ON A SMALL GRINDER
WAS ONE SUGGESTION, PLEASE HELP,

THANKS JOHN

Yup! A diamond saw and a very steady hand is the cleanest and fastest way to do it.

Don't forget to waterproof everything very well before retiling.

If the new tile is 5x6 it is most likely not "pool tile", meaning that it is not frost-proof. If you live in an area that does not experience freezing then you will be ok. But do not use non frost-proof tile in freeze areas - it will flake.
