Deep Blue Wilmar
Are these tiles "pool rates"?
- Our pool waterline tiles are high fired and made specifically to withstand wet conditions. They are also resistant to pool chemicals, but due to the clay composition, they are not technically rated as pool-tiles.
Can I install them submerged, inside a pool and on a fountain?
- Though our dense, high-fired clay tiles have been installed in fountains and swimming pools, without any issues, we advise you to take extra installation precautions when installing these tiles in a submerged application.
What is lifespan of these tiles?
- If properly installed, this product will endure decades of use. For best results, follow our Pool tile installation guide and wet area installation of clay guide. However, since Clay Imports Pool Waterline Tiles are handmade, expect patina and slight crazing. These characteristics are aesthetic and will not interfere with the integrity of the tiles.
Do you offer a warranty on the installation?
- Since the installation of tile greatly determines the integrity of the project and the tile itself, Clay imports does not warranty this product and is not responsible for dissatisfaction of material following installation. Please inspect all tile upon receipt and notify us immediately if you have any quality concerns.

Grout & Sealer
We recommend Mapei FlexColor™ CQ.
For the best look and easier installation, we recommend grout spacing 3/16”.
Confirm that the surface that you will be installing your sealed clay tile on has been properly waterproofed. We recommend waterproofing with Laticrete 9235 and prior to the installation of your pool waterline tile, seal every tile piece with an adequate penetrating sealer. We recommend Prime-A-Pell 200 or Miracle Seal Porous Plus.
