Can BEST pavers be laid near salt water pools?
Yes, the entire BEST product range is salt resistant and as such is ideal for use beside salt water pools.
Should BEST pavers be sealed?
This really is an individual choice. Do you want your pavement to weather naturally or do you want to maintain a “just laid” pristine appearance? What is beyond dispute is that pavers should not be sealed until at least 3 months after they have been laid and always make sure that area to be sealed has been thoroughly cleaned prior to application of sealer.
