    How long did your tile take?

    and did you have free form or geometric? Ours is taking FOREVER. He started on 4/24 and still isn't finished with the pool or put any tile on the spa. We asked the project manager about it and he said it is because it is a rectangular pool. We're just getting 3x3 water line tile and mosaic glass on the spa. It's a raised spa if that matters.

    Water line tile + spa tile + half spa facing the pool tile + stacked stone veneer on remaining half spa + flagstone coping = about 4 days work for a crew of 4 guys (2 doing stone work, 2 doing tile work). My pool is 93 linear feet.

    Yea mine is one guy too. It just seemed like he was working a lot for such little outcome and I was afraid he din't know what he was doing. But I'm finally seeing the hot tub tile going up! Everyone told me it took one day for tile. 2 weeks with nothing on the hot tub seemed strange.

    thanks for the replies

    Probably doesn't answer your question but here in Europe they are used to tiling the complete pool. Mine took 3 days start to finish.




    Four guys turned upon Friday finished on Sunday to add to the job heavy rain in the week before effected our mains water supply (leak in road about 1K away cut off our urbanization supply) but to the tilers credit they coped by transporting buckets of water from another location in buckets in their van!

    Its a 9x4.5m rectangular pool so the shape helped.




    These are Spanish Vidrepur glass tiles - they come in 30cm squares. They are available in the US.
    The paper is peeled off after the glue has set and then grouted in.









    Fantastic colour at the end of the project.

    64m3 (17K US gallons) 9m x 4.5m fully tiled (Vidrepur) pool. Viron P320 eVo variable speed pump, Concept Plus Smart PH E SW chlorinator, Astral filter (Activated Glass), 2x LED controllable lights. Solar cover installed and solar heating plumbing installed for later installation of collectors.
