Shaken or Stirred?
Not that long ago, the only Scotches you could buy in the US were blends. That began to change in the late 1970s, when Americans started to buy less whisky and more vodka. As a result, the blenders also began buying less whisky. In an attempt to spur sales, the distillers began bottling their single malts and marketing them directly to drinkers. Single malts have become so popular that many distilleries are now running around the clock and have stopped selling to blenders altogether.

I have it in a shower but I never use harsh cleaners and wipe it off after every shower. It also is not a grouted tile. We used silicone above and below the first and last row of tile to help protect against any water run off. But a pool would have to be sealed completely and this tile would not be conducive to grouting with any kind of grout but particularly a sanded grout. However, if you are going to have any type of covered area around the pool you might think about using it in a wall or as a back for a cushioned bench with a strip of cushion in the middle. In other words a strip of tile then cushion then tile, on the back. Then build a base far enough up from the floor to take care of feet with shoes then but a strip of the tile, then your cushioned seat with a small overhang.
Here's the rub. This is glass so you have to be careful of scratches, potential items that could break an area that is protruding as it is a wave.
Here's the BEST THING...IT IS GORGEOUS AND NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT!!! You will be the toast of the pool parties, the neighbors, your family, and lots of people you have no idea who they are! Good luck...it's worth it!!
Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Glass tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Glass is reflective therefore any inconsistencies in the substrate will result in a poor installation. For pools and fountains we recommend installing a mortar bed according to TCA P601-98. EXPANSION AND CONTROL JOINTS PER TCA EJ171-05 Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.INSTALLATION
- To avoid affecting the color of glass tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- This tile does not require grout. You would have to water down the thin-set a little bit and the excess thin-set will act as the grout line.
- Apply thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
