I already have a Bluestone patio and would love to have it around my pool to keep it all in the same stone, but I was leaning towards a quartzite patio/coping for around the pool due to concerns of erosion from the SWG. My pool builder said I can he can install a Bluestone patio/coping along with some pop-up sprinklers in the joints to cool the stone and rinse off any splash out.
The stonework is not cheap so I want to make sure it will last. Should I still be concerned given the above? Is Bluestone considered a soft or hard stone?
