I've got a shotcrete pool shell that I'm just about ready to put some waterline tiles on. 1" x 1" tiles from NPT (National Pool Tile). Laticrete recommended their 254 Platinum thinset and Spectralock epoxy grout. Any thoughts on those two products or anything else I need to keep in mind when tiling?
I also need to build up my skimmer openings about a 1/2". Should I do this with Hydraulic cement rather than applying a thicker bed of thinset?
Here's a photo from when they shot the pool...to give you some reference.
