I'm building a concrete pool that will be finished with https://www.blueglasspebble.com.au/glass-pebble-products.html. I did not include any waterline tiles in the contract but the more I read about them the more I think I should add them. It looks like the pool will look better and it will be easier to maintain.
I asked my builder to quote the work and that will add around 5-6k for a 4x8 pool.
Are they really a must-have? Can you add them later?

Hey, Waterline tiles are going to help with the scum line, as it'll be easier to brush and they make your pool look nice. Can you add them later... yes, but its a lot of work and no way will it be as good as, if you have them laid before the pebbling.
1st you'd have to drain the pool, then with a steady hand, you'd have to remove the pebble 300mm (and a bit down) remove the pebble which has bonded to the coping... and you'd someone with a super steady hand to cut straight around the perimeter, without damaging the pebble. Can it be done? yes, would it be worth it, imo.. not really.
plus Refilling of the pool, maybe acid washing the mess they've made whilst doing the tiles, adding chemicals, balancing
The cost to add them later would be extra $1000's you might as well have them on to begin with.

If the original tiles are still in good nick and stuck solid (ie no druminess/hollow sounds when tapping) then you can tile over tile. Normally the tiler would need to…
