    DO YOU NEED TO SEAL THE WATERLINE TILE AND GROUT. fng pool build in AZ

    So I am almost done with my pool build and am just about to get the interior sprayed. I had a tile company do the waterline tile however I don't think they put a sealer on the waterline. Do you need to seal the waterline and grout?

    Nope. Masonry is always just a tiny bit porous but not enough to cause any issue in the grout.

    What do you mean by "waterline"? Do you mean the tile?

    Yeah sorry I wasn't very specific. The pool and spa almost done and just needs the flooring to be sprayed in. The waterline tile has already been installed and grouted around the pool as well as the spa. My question is, do I now need to seal the waterline tile and grout with a sealer to protect it from the pool water. or is the ceramic/ porcelain and grout enough ? hopefully this pic goes through, new to the whole forum thing lol My spa IMAG0272.jpg

    Yes, that's enough. Is this a DIY?
