So, you are have decided to have a new swimming pool built and the contractor has presented you with the different options. Of course the size is the first decision and this usually determined by your budget and the available area in your yard. The shape of available yard space may also influence the shape. Functionally, how are you going to use the pool? Do you want to be able to swim laps for excursive? Do you want to just have refreshing water hole to jump in a cool off? Do you like to have neighborhood World Series water polo matches? Would you like a built in Jacuzzi, or a vanishing edge, where the water spills over the side and is collected in a trough and recirculated? All of the options above are some of the choices that a homeowner has to decide upon. When you think about it there are really are not that many options to choose from as your budget and lot size are determining factors. However there is one thing that you do have a lot of different choices for and that is the pool tile for the waterline. Normally your pool contractor will present you with sample tile boards and if you have checked out other pools you have probably noticed that many of them look similar. Why not create your own special look for your waterline tile. There are many mosaic tiles in the market place today that can be incorporated into your own special design. Some manufactures have software programs that will let you choose your own colors and the percentage of each tile used in the blend you create. Many homeowners find this very appealing as you can have a waterline tile that is truly unique. Glass tile is probably the best tile to select for a custom designed mosaic blend. There are so many colors and styles to choose from it are easy to come up with something


unique. There is no maintenance with glass tile as it is impervious to staining and will look the same forever. If you have a bit more to spend, a very creative waterline pool tile is granite. Over the last few years we have incorporated slab granite in place of waterline tile. A slab of granite is selected and cut into five or six-foot lengths by six inches wide and then these are installed with cement under the pool coping. The pool finishers then apply the finish pool coat flush to the bottom edge of the granite. When there are radius corners involved the granite is cut in smaller pieces to make and fitted to conform to the pool radius corners. This is a very unique look that you will not see in your neighborhood swimming pools. The look is that of one continuous line of stone, that color grouted correctly has no grout joints. This slab technique cannot be implemented using marble. Marble is too soft and will loose its color and shine after a few years of the sun beating down on it, while granite is not affected because of its hard volcanic make up. So, when you are deciding on what waterline tile to use for you're new pool or pool up grade remember, you do not have to be limited by the everyday waterline tile that is presented to you.
