Are you renovating your home and are now ready to take on the challenge and reward of building a pool or perhaps you wish to do some pool renovations too? The different types of pool mosaics include porcelain, glass, brick and stone. The tile a pool owner chooses will usually depend on their preferences in style, colour, size, and price.
Porcelain pool mosaics are made using raw materials that are pressed under high pressure. The result is a tile with a fine grain that is dense and durable and able to withstand heavy traffic. Glazed porcelain tiles, the type commonly used in pools, are ideal for use in any climate because they generally have a lower water-absorption rate than non-porcelain tiles — below 0.5%. These pool mosaics also are much harder, making them impervious to water damage and their smooth surface makes them easier to clean. Porcelain also is soft to the touch, something much appreciated by many swimmers.
Pool mosaics are small pieces usually ranging from 25mm to 50mm put on a 300x300mm sheet. It is important to choose the right backing as paper or mesh sheeting although lower in price will cost more to lay, sometimes almost double the price.
