The new and beautifully designed Tropics line takes its name from the natural cloud-like textures found in this tile. A graceful design sure to breathe beauty into many pools and spas. The Tropics series has a 3x3, 1x2, dolphin and wave pattern, great for mixing and matching or just using them by themselves.
This is a porcelain tile which is the only type that is recommended for pools, spas or water features. The difference between porcelain and other tiles is really one of quality rather than type. The clay used for porcelain tiles is simply purer and more refined, making them tougher, denser and more impervious to water. With a water absorption rate of less than 0.5%, porcelain tiles are less liable to stain and are usually more frost-resistant.
The shade of tiles or stone may vary within any given color which is an inherent quality that enhances their beauty. All pool tiles are high fired porcelain and colors can change with each die-lot.
