Questions & Answers


Ok for pool water line?

Asked by Gg April 4, 2018

Hi GG, Yes, our Area 15 Botanic Black would do great as a pool water line! This tile is porcelain, meaning that it will absorb little to no water. This tile is also glazed, chemical resistant and frost resistant. If you would like to determine if these tiles are right for you, we offer samples! Please be aware that samples come adhered to 4.5”x5” sample cards which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole pattern. To be able to see the whole pattern, we recommend ordering a case. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold (in this situation, a case). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!
