    Will glazed porcelain tile hold up indoors with salt water?

    Hi All,

    Installed our SW pool this spring. Figured the $ outlay was about done. However, we want to finish part of the basement to have full bath, changing room, and place to hang out - wet bar, ice maker, ... Since there will be dripping people going through to bathroom and coming in for drinks/food, are looking at glazed porcelain tile for flooring. I will use an epoxy based grout which seals out water/staining, and this will be mounted on the concrete.

    My question is if I need to worry about the saltwater sitting on tile? I would suspect it would be fine and just need to clean regularly as would see dried deposits. Hoping to hear from others that have this setup.

    thanks,
    Gary

    I had an above ground saltwater pool for years and my entire floor is tile. No problems with the tile at all.
