    Hello, my pool tiles are missing and I’m trying to google to find replacement ideally matching original color but no luck.

    Does anyone know any good website/place that I can find pool tiles of 30x30mm? Thanks.

    All I found these days are 25x25mm.

    Have you tried this place?

    Little Tile Inc - online source to Current and Vintage pool tile catalogs

    I googled "70s pool tiles" and there are catalogues there. I picked 1974 and found the one above. It looks close but perhaps if you send him the photo he might be able to help. Postage from the US shouldn't cost too much if they do match.

    I reckon though, that if you can't match, you could remove the tiles and update them? Will obviously cost more, but should not cost too much.

    To be honest the ones that have fallen off are just the start. The whole pool likely needs new tiles and regrouting. Maybe even repaint and seal. And even if you could source them they will be newer and glossy and have a different colour and look like a patch job

    I would also check you tile measurement, using the tape a 100mm not at the end as you loose a mm or 3.
