    Pool Tile Polish/Protectant

    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what we could use to polish/protect our pool tile?

    Something like car wax?

    TPS protectant is what I covered my tiles with and it works great. We just finished our second pool build and we are using it on this pool too.

    I dont get excited much about pool products in general, but that looks potentially very good if it works. Something that could help, even with the best pool balance upkeep. Waterfalls, and dark tiles come to mind.

    Pool Tile Polish/Protectant

    Being a silicone material, it's going to leave a film behind. They say it doesn't yellow or crack but I'd like to see more info on that. Here in AZ the sun and heat are so intense, I would be very wary of applying any coating to my tile. If sun exposure isn't as much of an issue, I suppose it could work. Silicones, once dried can become very hard to remove from surfaces. It would be interesting to see some before and after shots if you could post those.

    I am curious if the TPS would be good to apply to tile in Las Vegas, with our sun/heat....?

    I used it on my last pool we built here in Vegas, and I just finished our new pool and we used it on this one too. It never turned yellow, cracked or flaked off.

    I may try in a few extra tile I have, i think I would have to drain some of the water to get to the tile.

    If it will take Vegas heat and not crack or yellow, it ought to work just about anywhere on this continent.
