The tiles have been falling off my spa and am finally getting around to doing something about it. The rest of the pool looks OK for the moment.

I'm guessing re-tiling the spa plus maybe a general cleaning is the best option? I don't know how likely it is that they'll be able to match the design (not sure I care about that much either).

Other options or recommendations? I'm in Southern California's Inland Empire, BTW if any recommendations for a contractor.

Yeah, you need to retile your spa.

In the future check the grout around your spa tile for cracks and fill in the cracks with grout. The reason you lose tiles is because water gets into cracked grout and over time erodes the backing and thinset holding the tile in place. Keep water erosion from happening and your tiles will last a lot longer.
