A swimming pool is a big investment, so it makes sense to ensure that it will be durable, safe, and capable of lasting for a long time. The key is choosing the right materials for it, and if you want all those qualities, consider building a marble pool for your home. Marble is a dense, non-foliated metamorphic rock made up of re-crystallized carbonate minerals, formed from super-heated limestone, and resulting in a one-of-a-kind and durable crystalline structure that has been used to build the most iconic buildings in Greek and Roman history. Its durability is proven by those structures, like the Taj Mahal and the Parthenon, so by building your pool with it, you can be sure that you are investing in material that will last for generations.
Buying a marble pool requires careful research and consideration, starting with the supplier. Make sure that you are buying the marble pavers and copings only from an established supplier that specializes in sourcing high-grade natural stone tiles and pavers directly from quarries and sellers. That way, the material can be cost-effective and you can be confident in their high quality. Marble pavers and copings come in many different colors, cuts, textures, and finishes, but the supplier should be able to send you the samples of the products that you want, so you can make informed choices about them.
You would want your marble pool to be safe and free of accidents, so make sure that the copings and pavers have a tumbled finish, which will provide an additional grip for the feet. Marble pool copings can be supplied as regular bullnose copings for uniquely shaped pools with rounded curves and for rectangular shaped pools with straight edges, but some suppliers carry exclusive products, such as thick copings for retrofit jobs and remodels. For a remodeling project, consider pre-formed remodeling copings with a four-inch turn, so they can be installed over existing copings and cover all manner of damage, uneven installation, or blemish.
