new pool/spa...tile or plaster spa?

rockybirdMarch 23, 2012

I am putting in a 60' x 14' pool which is just waiting the final inspection before plastering. With the help of this forum (thanks!), I picked a blue mosic glass tile for the water line. I really like it. Out of curiosity, I asked the pool ctr. how much to tile the 9.5x9.5 foot spa. With the tile and minus the cost of plaster, the price is around 2300. I didnt think this is so bad, but I dont know if it is worth doing. Is tile more comfortable? Are there advantages or disadvantages over plaster? The pool will be white plaster. Thank you!
