Glass mosaic tiles are very attractive come in a vast range of colours, sizes, textures. Truly something for everyone’s taste. They are normally impact resistant, hard wearing, not affected by sunlight (UV), changes in temperature or strong pool chemicals. However they do have some pool problems
Why do problems and leaks occur?
We have already stated that the tiles themselves are strong so a likely cause of them coming off is that they were not fixed in place correctly or the underlying swimming pool structure has a problem. Humidity getting between the swimming pool structure and the tiles can cause areas of the tile to bubble up and forcing the individual tiles off.
If large blisters in the pool tiles are not evident then you will probably see a white or brown deposit forming on the tiles a typical pool problem.
The tiles on this step are hiding a leak. The chemicals in the pool water and the pressure are dissolving the lime in the pool structure which is slowly forming this white/brown crust. The pool tiles will have to be removed and the under lying pool sealed before the steps are re-tiled and grouted.
When repairing a mosaic tile problem it is usually necessary to take off a much larger area to get to the root of the pool problem.
