    Replacement Pool Cap Tile (79')

    Not sure if this is where I should put this, but oh well.

    I just moved into a new house and it has a very nice pool. However, it's 30 years old and needs some new cap tiles. It has the old style white porcelain tiles with a rounded edge at the top. I'm thinking they're about 6"x3". I will upload a picture later.

    Any idea where I can find a small quantity of these (10-15)? And are there special considerations for installing pool tile? I've done a lot of tiling but never for a pool.

    Thanks for advice and help.

    Not really. It's the same technique and same products pretty much. Porcelain tiles are quite a bit less absorbent if you can find them to match your existing.

    Your existing will likely be VERY hard to my fingers crossed for you!

    Local wholesalers stock that type of stuff. Go to the pool store and ask them to ring their rep. They are cheap and come in a bunch of colors.
