    Waterline pool tile help!!!!

    I found the perfect tile on Pinterest and there is no link on how to order. The only tile I have found even close is on light streams website and it is extremely expensive. Does anyone know where I can find this tile?

    I HATE pintrest for this very reason--------SO hard to find the source to follow up on buying.

    AND look what else I found! The MAX in BLING!

    Ceramic Tile Tools metallic glitter grout | Information on trowels, tile cutters, grout tools, tile tools and accessories.

    I have not idea if it would work in a pool but oh the sparkle!

    We are lucky Kim doesn't have waterline tile and glitter grout, it would blind as all, all the way from FL!

    No help on the Pinterest, but no matter where you go, that type of tile will be $$$. Love it, but it's pricey.

    * Lightstreams Gold Iridescent Collection Steel Blue Glass Tile

    Try this link. It is not subway but I think the colors are what you are looking for.

    Re: Waterline pool tile help!!!!

    Yes the lightstreams is exactly what we are looking for , just not the price .
    We are really wanting to do The LS but we need 65 square feet to do our water line .
    We have blown budget on ALMOST everything else , and I for one am having a super hard time spending 2500 on this alone .
    I/we am hoping the subway type that was posted off of Pinterest would be a little better price point . Not to mention she is eyeballing somthing along the same lines for all of the steps and benches (we have a lot of those as well)

    Eh, it's just money. You'll have this tile for (hopefully) 10+years. That's a LONG TIME looking at it and you don't want regrets. Just my opinion. I'm spending the big bucks as well.

    Re: Waterline pool tile help!!!!

    Yes Kim is right, bling costs big $! OMG but it is beautiful. I don't know if you can find it in other tile areas not labeled "pool", but do we have to stick with pool quality? I don't know. I have to research so many other things that I just tried to stick to basic tile on surround and get an upgrade on the 6 sheets needed for lagoon, 2 steps and 1 bench with 1x1 in 2 lines across. If you can use other tile without sacrificing quality, then maybe you can shop around and get something on discount or sale. Even with the "standard", it is a thousand dollars, so if mine turns out butt ugly I will just a little bit.
