There is a lot more that goes into a pool than just a foundation and water. There are lots of littler things that need to be taken care of in order to make a pool functional.There is the foundation, obviously, and the deck, the drainage for the pool, a filter and heater that all need regular care to get the most out of it. A lot of decks are made of tile, because there are many different types of tile that are moisture resistant as well as giving your home or public area a more aesthetic appeal. Granite tile is very common to see in pool decks because of its natural resistance to erosion, and its own particular aesthetic appeal.
Granite also creates a good amount of friction, which helps negate some of the inherent slipperiness of the pool and the water that gets splashed around it. A further benefit is that granite does not absorb as much heat as certain other substances, so you can walk barefoot along it without burning yourself.
Is your pool tile cracking up?
Mister Poolman’s tile repair is nothing to laugh about!
The point of this is to let our customers, and potential customers know that tile comes with its own set of concerns. Installing and replacing tile is a challenge, but a necessity. Chipped tiles can be dangerous and cut you, which is not something you want to have to deal with. The grout between tiles, stabilizing them, is not nearly as durable at certain hard mineral tiles, and will need frequent treatment too. Repairing cracks in the sealants and grout is going to keep your pool sanitary for longer than not doing so, while re-plastering the foundation of the pool will that more security too. There are lots of little things that can be done to increase the longevity of your swimming pool, and Mister Poolman is here to assist you with them all.
