Waterline Pool Tile
This type of tile is mainly used to cover the perimeter of the swimming pool, located right beneath the coping and it is approximately 6-inches of height. Porcelain tiles and glass tiles are the only two types of materials that can be used, it is very important to note that not all ceramic and glass tiles are pool rated.
If your next question is, what makes tile pool rated? First and foremost, pool tiles must be frost-proof so that they can withstand extreme weather conditions and drastic changes in temperatures. Tiles should also be impervious to water with an absorption rate of (≤0.5%) and withstand chemicals used to maintain the pools water cleanliness without fading or discoloring the tile.
