Still waiting for my Pb to come back and install the tile on my viking inground. Had a salesman here today for cover estimate and said he's never seen a fiberglass pool that the tiles did not come off of. Anyone have any experience with this??
I'm in Central Texas....I talked to 3 different pool companies who would NOT put tiles on my inground fiberglass pool....they all said tiles tend to fall off no matter what materials are used and they didn't want to be sued....evidently one pool guy had been sued.....he had to be called back to the pool time after time....finally the pool owner sued him....all 3 also told me it is very expensive....I found companies online where we could purchase the tiles and adhesive and do it ourselves, but decided not to do it...
It's a reasonably common practice here in my area so I assume these local PB's have had reasonable success. A neighbor had his done three years ago and it's still intact.
I would NOT suggest it as a DIY project. The epoxy is pretty messy to work with and the possibility of a sloppy or unsuccessful DIY job is pretty high. It's not rocket science but I would be reluctant to attempt it.
