What is a better finish for your pool Tile or gunite?

Gunite is not a finish for a pool. Gunite is not waterproof, and is used as the structural shell when building a swimming pool-some contractors may choose shot-crete- but not as the interior finish. Once the shell is in place you need a waterproof coating so that your swimming pool holds water. Tile would work if you set it over a waterproof bed (pool brite or something similar) The problem is that tile would be quite expensive, more difficult to maintain (with all the grout lines and such), and it would be nearly impossible to locate a leak if you ended up with one. Most people are using a plaster or marcite product as their interior finish of the pool with tile only in a few areas (like waterline tile, and maybe some decorative tiles). There are numerous manufacturers of quarts aggregate and pebble finishes from companies like Krystal Krete and SGM. This pool builders website shows some of the typical products used for pool interiors. http://poolcaptain.com/68/interior-pool-spa-finish/ I hope this was helpful! Every 100 pebble surfaces I remove only 1 goes back to pebble, the other 99 go with a smooth surface. Unless the quartz aggregate is mixed with a pozzolan modified cement it is subject to ASR...alkali silica reaction. Plenty of info on the web. Pebble and quartz surfaces have turned out NOT to be the panacea they were purported to be. I do pebbles, glass beads, quartz and plaster and I tell everyone the truth about each surface and what to expect.

Where on a swimming pool does it tell who made the pool?

Sometimes a swimming pool builder will leave a sticker on or near the equipment that will say the companies name but typically a swimming pool these days won't say who built it. Our company (Florida Bonded Pools in Jacksonville Florida) used to install brass logo's in the top step of the pools we built in the 60's and in the 70's we changed to a pool tile in the waterline tile but now we just put a sticker on the equipment. I hope this helps. Feel free to visit our website floridabondedpools.com or our facebook page. You can also check with the local building department for permits issued. It typically will tell you when a permit for pool construction was issued and who the builder was.

Can you use tile grout in a pool?

Using regular cement based grouts made for flooring tiles will not last very long, there are special grouts made to withstand the discoloring effects caused by chemicals used in pool maintenance. Also swimming pool tile grout is made to have a waterproof matrix in the cement that minimizes the staining. There are a few companies who specialize in just cement based products made for swimming pools. Also if you are going to make a repair I would suggest one of the pool tile repair kits because they come with a bonding agent to help the grout last longer as well.

What is the correct blast media and pressure to bead blast pool tile?

The traditional method uses sand or glass beads. Some cleaning companies use a media that is softer than the tile to avoid damage to the surface. Specially processed sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and hydrated magnesium sulphate (epson salts) are used quite frequently for cleaning pool tile without damaging the tile. Both of these products are not recyclable and are cleaned by dissolving in water. Care must be taken with sodium bicarbonate because it can damage landscaping if not used properly. Surface Renewal Pool Tile Cleaning uses both glass bead and magnesium sulfate to clean pool tile. You can not bead blast glass pool tile without etching so the use magnesium sulfate to clean glass pool tile is a must. On standard ceramic pool tile glass bead blasting is sufficient due to the high cost of using magnesium sulfate as long as it is done at a low pressure.
