Our pool is 18 years and some of the tiles have popped off. The kooldeck also is coming off in chunks so we have been getting prices for a total remodel. We've been told by two companies that we don't "need" to redo the diamond brite yet so we are leaning toward doing the retile and the acrylic deck for now. My question is I understand the old tile is approximately 1/8 inch thick compared to the newer tiles that are 1/2 inch thick. One company said they will flare the surface with new diamond brite to meet the new tile which will stick out further than the old tile because of the new size. Has anybody dealt with this before?
I am guessing the new surface will take awhile to fade and will be under the water line along with the bottom of the tile. The old tile was done with three 2" tiles where this would be done with 1 6" tile. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
