    10 ft pool how do I get up high enough to tile it?

    So I'm working on my remodel and want to start working on tiling it, I have some experience with my bathrooms and kitchens, the one thing stumping me is how do I get high enough to tile it. I don't think reaching in from the top will work... any ideas?

    You could rent scaffolding, or do as Big Will's contractor. Personally, I build a 3-part wood piece to paint stairways with the ladder, and pressure wash on a slope. You can google or pinterest ideas for an angle support.

    My guy had some things that hung over the side of the pool.

    I have a 10' deep pool and had to come up with lots of different ideas. For the bulk of the work I installed roof jacks (for installing roofing) by drilling into the pool and using expansion anchors that fit the roof jacks. After I just grouted in the holes before we sealed it.

    After sealing I built a few a-frame with a horizontal kicker - first picture above that I could move around. My pool has the slope like yours so in the sloped areas I padded up and rigged a 6' fixed ladder with a couple of angles to hang behind the coping.

    Be safe, and if you aren't used to working perched like that, it can be pretty uncomfortable. It was for me.
