Looking for either a 'store', or a catalog or on-line site that is Mexico (rather than US) based for some interesting tiles for a pool. Not necessarily a design. Thanks for any leads,

S.

Most of the pool builders have sample books.

These glass beaded finishes are all the rage now for high end pools. Someone in Mexico should be doing them.

The glass bead pools get stained by the water here. I already had looked into that product prior to getting my pool redone last May.

Ok for you .... that's good to know. I think the KISS principal will be it. Any findings on the difference between the straight edge tiles and the rounded-edge tiles?

Nope didn't know there was a difference. I imagine the round edge ones would show wider grout lines. I do know if you stray from the norm they can get quite expensive. Even unordinary colors cost more than your basic blues or whites.

the rounded edge is available ... I have not yet explored the difference in cost.

I looked at all the different coatings such as Diamond brite, etc. because I really don't like the tile look however they all told me with the high iron levels and other minerals in the water around here these types of coatings would stain.
