Pool sinking on one end tile question


In The Industry

Hello, Has anyone ever tiled an uneven pool? This pool is 3 inches deeper in the deep end. This customer says the pool has been like this for 10 years without it getting worse. How can I install a new tile line that will make the pool look more even. He is unwilling to do the job right. Its way too much money and he only cares about making it look level. Any help would be great. Thank you

Welcome to TFP.

FG pools out of level have tile installed to follow the water line. The difference in the gap between the tile and coping is not noticeable unless someone compares one end with the other.

@jimmythegreek thoughts?

If hes not willing to redo the coping amd mud it up them fix the deck the only options are 1x1 tile that's busy so you dont notice as much. The other better option on 3" out is to run tile a ways below the waterline. The reflection thru water wont really show. Still use a smaller tile the big tiles show more amd use similar color grout not contrasting colors
