Installation of swimming pool tiles

The installation of swimming pool:

1.Polishing (after waterproof treatment, polishing and leveling)

Drain the pool completely. Chip, grind or bush hammer away any high spots along the liner of the pool. Chip away debris from around pipes and lights with a light chipping hammer.

2.The whole pool is batched with a layer of cement.

Clean the entire surface of the pool with a garden hose fitted with a pressure nozzle. Leave the pool to dry until the surface appears damp but there is no visible moisture on the surface. This is known as saturated surface dry.


Dampen the surface of the pool to saturated surface dry again. Clean the back side of the tiles to remove any dust resulting from the manufacturing process.

Mix glass mosaic tile adhesive with water at a ratio of 3 to 1. Continue mixing to a creamy consistency and then leave the mix to stand for 5 minutes. Stir again and then use immediately. Do not mix more adhesive than you can use in 15 minutes or it will begin to set before installation and will not bond efficiently with the tiles.


Cover the pool. Leave the adhesive to cure according to manufacturer’s instructions, checking often to determine when it is fully cured. Temperature, humidity and wind conditions will affect the drying process and you cannot proceed with grouting the tiles until the adhesive completely cures.

Moisten the tiles with a damp sponge. Grout the tile with an epoxy grout mixture and a rubber grout float held at a 45-degree angle. Gently scrape away any epoxy grout on the surface of the tiles with the grout float held diagonally.
