What kind of tiles can I use in areas that will be underwater such as my shower and my pool? Are there any tips I should know?

RE: underwater tiles
Most ceramic and stone tiles will work just fine in extreme wet areas. Just don't use a high gloss tile for your shower floor, way too slippery. Use one with a matte finish. For your pool I would go to a store where they specialize in pool tiles.

Porcelain tile absorbs very little water and are a very good choice for underwater applications.

Also, it is important that you use an appropriate cement or epoxy based adhesive and that the backerboard is water resistant.
