    Glass tiles

    PB has given me an option for glass tiles for an infinity pool.
    From my research online, glass tiles are prone to thermal shock.
    So, Which manufacturers are known for their high quality glass tiles?

    I really love the iridescent glass tile look and want to ensure that my PB chooses the proper product and employs proper installation techniques in order to minimize potential issues down the road.

    Thanks

    Glass tiles look awesome for sure, but if they are not installed perfectly, problems usually occur. They can also chip fairly easily, creating undesirable sharp edges.

    They really do look great. That's why I would like to get some input on quality glass pool tile manufacturers and proper installation practices.

    Lightstreams is good, also check out Sonoma Tiles / Market Collection. Expensive, but are extremely high quality
