As you can see by these photos, Al did a great job with his pool area using Patio Tile Aqua from Greatmats. A perfect, outdoor wet tile, it is perforated so it doesn’t hold the heat and prevents water from puddling up on the surface. It’s also a much safer surface for children than concrete.
“The tile made a huge difference,” Al says. “It covered the aging concrete around the pool. The tile over the treated wood deck worked great.”
Al covered 1860 square feet of pool area including the deck and the job took him only 29 hours. Because these wet area tiles require no adhesive, it’s a pretty straightforward job. Just click the tiles together and cut them off to fit around the pool area and other obstructions.

“I’m very happy with the product and would recommend it to friends. The only recommendation I would make is that the manufacturer look into making some nosings to finish the edge.”
(We’re actually in contact with the manufacturer about that very thing. Al had to use 90 degree metal strips to finish the edging by the ladder that descends into the pool.)
“Otherwise, everything went great.”
Thanks, Al. We appreciate your business.

Spring is finally here and summer is right around the corner. Tommy H. is preparing to enjoy his pool area to the fullest by using our Aqua Tiles for his pool surround. He’s also installing around a screened in patio and hot tub.
Aqua tile is a PVC product made specifically for wet area flooring. Its perforated design allows for easy water drainage so puddles are not an issue. This soft material also feels much more comfortable on bare feet than concrete or some other pool surround materials.
Installation of Aqua tiles is a snap. Literally. Just snap the tiles to each other. You need no messy adhesives. When you reach the edge of the pool, these plastic tiles can easily be cut to fit with a utility knife. Tommy used a pruning shears!
“I installed myself on weekends and at night,” he says. “The biggest challenge was to cut around the kidney shaped pool.”
“Down in south Louisiana (where Tommy lives) the ground always subsides and cracks in the concrete are common.” Aqua tiles are a great solution for this. Available in four colors, green, blue, terracotta, and gray, they match almost any pool décor.
Aqua patio tiles are also slip resistant. This is important for areas around pools because kids, whether we like it or not, are apt to run around. It’s far safer to fall on these soft tiles than it is on concrete.
Designed for common foot traffic, they can also withstand outdoor tables and chairs. They are manufactured with UV stabilizers in the product mix. This gives them better resistance to sunlight and keeps them from fading as quickly as some other pool surround products on the market.
Although designed for outdoor use, they can also be used in a variety of wet areas including basement showers or in spa areas.
We asked Tommy if he’d recommend Greatmats to his friends.
“Of course. I have shown the results thus far to many residents in the Houma area.”
Thank you, Tommy, for your review. We encourage everyone who has purchased our products to please send in a photo and let us know what you think. We are determined to provide the best products and the best customer service possible.
