Most porcelain tiles have a hard wearing surface that doesn't absorb dirt and would be hard wearing. Pool HQ only use specific "pool safe" tiles that has been specifically designed for permanent submersion and chemical resistance. The tiles can be used to fully tile a pool interior, waterline tile bands or to highlight steps / step edges.
The majority of concrete swimming pools are fully tiled in either porcelain or glass mosaics. Glass mosaics are typically more expensive due to a higher tile cost and higher labour costs to install, however they offer a larger range with more varieties of finishes. Both porcelain and glass tiles are of a similar quality and durability.
