    Problems with Spillway

    We recently remodeled our pool. We replaced all the tile, coping and the spillway. We now have new Glass Tile on the pool and a new Granite Spillway from the Spat to the Pool. However the water isn't flowing smoothly over the spillway. It seems to be running off the sides, and is also running back to the underside of the spillway, thus looking terrible.

    Does anyone know what the cause is and how do we get it fixed. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Welcome to TFP!

    The lip of the spillway, the point where the water comes off to go into the pool, needs to be completely level and have a perfectly even sharp edge.
