Broken or damaged pool tile
Pool tile repair is to be expected and it is necessary when swimming pool tiles fall or pop off. Tile installation can fail when there is a bond failure between the tile and the adhesive that is used to set the tile. Popped or loose tiles can also be a sign of not having sufficient caulking in the expansion joint between the coping and the deck. If the expansion joint is not properly caulked, water will eventually end up behind the tiles, can degrade the adhesive, or will expand when freezing. The end result is that your pool tile will crack or fall off.
The reason for swimming pool tile
Swimming pool tile is much improved from the old standard blue tile that we remember from swimming in public pools as kids. Modern swimming pool tiles come in an endless palette of colors, shapes, sizes and patterns. Pool tile is vastly different from household tile that you use in the bathroom or kitchen. It is not only an attractive accent to your pool or deck; it also has a functional role by providing a pool edge that naturally catches oil and dirt, and is easily cleaned. In other words, pool tile helps eliminate and unsightly “bathtub” ring in your pool.
Pool tiles and efflorescence
The technical term for a white powdery buildup on your tile and pool walls is efflorescence. This occurs because mineral salts leaches out of the grout, or from the tile adhesive. The deposits collect on the pool tile surface. Pool tile efflorescence can be removed mechanically or washed with muriatic acid. This is a job best handled by you Charlotte pool companies.
