Flagstone and salt water pool

What type of flagstone is most resistant to erosion from salt water pool?


How much per square foot might I expect to pay a stone/rock man to lay 600 sf of flagstone over existing concrete pool deck? Labor only.

stone for salt water pools NEW

Another type of stone for salt water pools is quartzite. Very hard and durable. If I had to choose I would choose quartzite. We've done several salt water pools with this product and after 7 to 9 years not a hint of trouble. Looks like we just put it in.

Salt water pools are known for hard to maintain problems. The best flagstone for salt water features are of the sandstone base. Here close to Texas many people use limestone base flagstone due to its close proximity. Limestone density is much lower than the sandstone. Our quarries in Oklahoma and Arkansas tend to provide a high density material that will last longer. Still we seal our flagstone with Salt Guard from Prosoco, Inc. Using a sealer for salt intrusion will prolong the life and color of your stone. Labor cost will vary from $3.00 per sq.ft. to $6.00 per sq.ft. Good luck.
