Textures and lining options to create a unique pool
Mosaic is a liner that can be customised on colour but also on texture. It's up to you to choose whether you want a rough (non-slip) or smooth liner. In the same way, choose whether you prefer a solid colour or a pool liner composed of several colours matched in pattern. With mosaic, you have the cards in your hand to make your pool a unique swimming area!
An exceptional aesthetic rendering luxury pool effect
With limitless customisation, mosaic is likely to be the most widely used coating for luxury pool design and renovation. This material can meet any demand for pool decorations: it is even possible to reproduce a custom-made decoration in the bottom of your pool to personalise it 100%. A simple photo will then serve as a model to make the plans of the future mosaic to be created.
A durable, chemical resistant solution
Mosaic is an extremely durable material. The quality and manufacturing components of mosaic tiles are designed to withstand constant exposure to the chemicals used in the maintenance, pool maintenance and recurrent cleaning of pools. There is therefore no risk of the material degrading over the years. Only the joints may subsequently require further renovation after several years as explained below.
Pool mosaic installation and renovation: what you need to know about waterproofing
Are you about to renovate your pool? Are you finishing the structural work and moving on to the lining stage of your pool? In both cases, certain conditions must be met for a successful pool construction or renovation project.
It makes perfect sense to want to resume or create the mosaic lining on the concrete surface of the pool. That said, in order for the two surfaces to be compatible and to avoid any problems with leaks for example, it is essential to use coatings and adhesives designed for exposure to water.
Mosaic is not a waterproof surface by nature!
To renovate the mosaic lining of your pool, it is therefore essential to use special bonding mortars designed for this purpose. In the same way, the installation of mosaic in a pool must be done with care to ensure the durability of the chosen coating.
MC Piscines will take care of waterproofing your pool in addition to offering you high-quality installation solutions.
The finish, the corners, the joints are the details that must be impeccable for your pool to be perfect. For more information on the feasibility of your project, MC Piscine is at your disposal to renovate your private or collective pool in Cap d'Ail, Roquebrune Cap Martin, Eze or Monaco.
What you need to know :
The Alpes-Maritimes is geographically on an earthquake zone.
Very regularly the land undergoes movements (which can be felt or not) causing considerable damage to swimming pools. This is why MC Piscines offers solutions to make the lining more "elastic" in order to limit the risk of cracks.
Why and when to renovate the mosaic joints in your pool
It happens that after a certain number of years, usually every 7 to 10 years, the tiles in your pool can become unstuck. This is most likely due to wear and tear on the joints of the liner. Rest assured, this phenomenon is completely normal.
Over the years, the joints are gradually eaten away by the water. The maintenance products cause normal wear and tear on your seals until they disappear (or almost disappear). Once the grout is completely eaten away, the water then seeps behind the tiles and naturally pushes them back into the water with the pressure applied.
When this happens, we advise you to renovate your pool as quickly as possible and definitely not wait for the problem to get worse.
MC Piscine offers the renovation of your pool joints and re-tiling of the tiles on the affected areas. For more information, we remain at your entire disposal and we adapt our intervention to your needs.

What are the differences between "glass paste" and "glass enamels"?
Mosaic cladding is a fairly broad term bringing together both enamels and glass paste.
In both cases, the benefits of this type of cladding remain the same. Whether it is glass paste or glass enamel mosaic, both pool linings are equally aesthetic. Their differences are often in the ease of installation and renovation of each material.
Paste glass pool mosaic
This is the most commonly used mosaic in swimming pools: it's the one we all know and have all seen at least once in a pool. Available in size 2cm by 2cm but also available in 1cm by 1cM size (less common), glass paste mosaic tiles are a little easier to lay. The square format makes it easier to lay on the corners of the pool.
With a crisp edge and dyed in the mass, glass paste tiles come in many colours and different patterns. The textures are also all diverse to create the desired high-end look.
Glass enamel pool mosaic
More rare, glass glazes are also used in high end pools. This type of tile is available in sizes of 2cm by 2cm, 3.6cm by 3.6cm or even 5cm by 5cm depending on design desires. Glass enamels have much smoother edges, which is great when the pool joints are bound to get damaged over time.
In the same way as glass paste, enamels also come in a variety of colours and textures to create a bespoke pool liner for your luxury pool.
How to determine the colour of the water in the pool?
When you opt for a mosaic lining in your pool, the most common question that arises is: what colour will the swimming water be? Therefore, this criterion must be taken into account in the process of choosing the colour of the mosaic.
It should be noted that the colour of your water will not only depend on the colour of the mosaic chosen. The depth of your pool, light exposure of the pool and environment (indoor or outdoor pool) are equally important.
The deeper the pool bottom, the darker the pool water will become. These colour shades will systematically come from light and sunlight. The reflections on the water will come from the surroundings of the pool: the vegetation will give some shades of green and dark on the water surface for example. Conversely, if you have a "clear" pool deck, the water will automatically appear clearer and more limpid.
With this in mind, it is important to choose the mosaic liner most suited to the colour of the water you expect in your pool. Lagoon blue, turquoise, indigo, navy, choose your preferred swimming water colour.
