Pedestal systems have been used for decades now, most familiarly for lightweight rooftop applications such as installing a patio utilizing the existing roof substrate. However, they can also be found in computer rooms where access to electrical and telecommunication cables beneath the floor is necessary. A pedestal system lifts the paver up above the substrate Here’s how they work with paver or tile projects. Basically, a pedestal, typically made of plastic, raises up the four corners of a tile, or paver, off the ground with small spacers in each corner. This leaves a small spacer (or tiny little gaps) on each side of the paver or tile, allowing the floor to breathe or, in the outdoors, for drainage and access. Other benefits, discussed in detail below, are time savings for installation, accessibility for both future changes/retrofitting and MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing). Limitations of pedestal systems It is recommended that you have a flat (not necessarily level, but flat) substrate on which to install the pedestal system.[...]
Salt: our limestone materials have negligible quantity of naturally occurring metals/iron oxides that would cause corrosion and subsequent failure, around a salt water or chlorine pool environment. Calcium Carbonate (limestone) is naturally inert, in regard to salt reactivity issues, in a pool deck environment. In contrast to the typical Indiana Limestone, this material is denser (therefore stronger) and you will not have an issue in that regard.
