MATCHING POOL COPING available in Drop Down, Bullnose, Bevel Edge
The European has a medium grey colour with cool blue undertones. As a result, they make excellent pool pavers and pool coping tiles as they enhance the blue colour of your pool.
We recommend that you grade the pavers into 2-3 thickness groups prior to installation. This is easily done as you are taking the tiles out of the crates and will also mix any variations in colour through the job from different crates.
15mm is recommended to be ONLY layed in a rapid setting adhesive and please use a 6mm trowel as follows…. Notch out 6mm of adhesive on the slab and 6mm cross notched on the back of each tile. Also please lay in BRICK or STRETCHER BOND patterns and allow for a 8mm minimum grout joint to allow for any tile variations in length or width. DO NOT ACID WASH your pavers.
Bluestone tiles and pavers can be sealed as a peace of mind to ensure bluestone stays in pristine condition. It’s highly recommended particularly in areas where there may be high spillage to protect the lustre of the bluestone tiles and pavers.
If you choose not to seal your tiles, make sure you clean up spills immediately to avoid staining the tiles. Use only a penetrating invisible type sealer (no colour change) similar to Tasman Chemicals STONE SHIELD and ALWAYS follow the sealer manufacturers instructions when applying. We stock a FULL range of suitable sealers.
Do not use Hydrochloric acid for clean up as this can cause minerals present in the stone to react adversely.To clean prior to sealing simply pressure wash the stone and ensure nozzle is never closer than 300mm to the surface of the stone.
Just sweep when needed. Bluestone responds well to high pressure cleaning with a domestic machine, please keep the nozzle about 300mm minimum away from face of the bluestone pavers and tiles. A solution of mild detergent and water can be applied prior to pressure cleaning.
