    True Tile Vinyl Pool

    Any advise please on TRU-TILE system
    We are having a vinyl pool installed and we are going to go for the Tru-Tile system, has anyone got any experience of this type of pool liner with ceramic tile top ??? I am a little worried about leaking as the liner joint to ceramic tile is below the water line. Is it a reliable system?

    1) The size of your pool in gallons...............10,000
    2) The type filter you have (sand, DE, cartridge)..........cartridge
    3) If your pool is an AG (above ground) or IG (in ground)..........AG
    4) If it's IG, tell us if it's vinyl, plaster/pebble, or
    5) If you know, tell us the size pump and the size (flow rate) of your filter..........
    6) Date of pool build/install, particularly important if less then a year old.............May 28,2012

    Welcome to TFP!

    I have no experience with the TRU-TILE system. Hopefully someone does and can help you out.

    I did a quick internet search for horror stories regarding these liners and could not really find any. It looks like they have been around for a while based on some of the info. Looks like a pretty safe bet based on that.

    If you are concerned about it's viability, I wouldn't install it. Having faith that your PB can do a good job is essential.

    Briefly, the design appears well thought out. Leaks would not be my concern but rather the PB's ability to do a goodj ob installing tile on a flexible wall. That epoxy thinset is VERY tough to deal with unless they are experienced. He should probably have some other jobs you can look at and get a reference, right?
