Hi all! Have spent a lot of time reading the forums and looking at pictures of everyone's beautiful pools. I'm trying to decide between two very different waterline tiles: a 2 x 3 glass tile (NPT's Sea Ice in Silver) and a 6 x 6 porcelain tile (NPT's Oceans in Marine). Does anyone have pics of either of these in their pools? Or a better suggestion? I'm going for something clean, modern, and Hamptons-ish! Will have silver travertine coping and decking. Pool is a rectangle (15 x 40) set half in grass. Thank you!

That Sea Ice is gorgeous! The other is ordinary. The glass will require more work to take care of but people do it. What can you live with though? Will the 6x6 make you happy?

Thank you, Nikilyn! I think you're right -- I'm willing to go for the "gorgeous" one (especially since our pool contractor volunteered to pay the difference because of a mistake they made early on) instead of the more ordinary one, even with the extra maintenance! Really appreciate you weighing in!

Hi Holly, I’m wondering if you went with the sea ice tile. I would love to see pictures. I’m considering that tile, but can’t find many pics of it. Thank you.

Hi - I’m in the middle of a reno and went with 1x2 sea ice silver. We love them. So many different colors depending on light and viewing angle. Can’t wait to see them when the pool is filled.
