Customer Questions & Answers

Should I remove existing thinset before using this?

One of my tile in bathroom floor came off... looks like it didn't stick well first time itself. I need to put this tile back. Should I remove old thinset before applying new, if so what's the best way to remove it?

I would contact the manufacturer. Since they are the makers of the product, they would know best.

Asked by: dave
I had to replace 18 4.25" x 4.25" shower tiles at the bottom of the walls. I took some of the tile repair mortar out of the original plastic tub and put it in a 12 oz. hot/cold drink cup. I put in about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of powder and slowly added 1/4 cup of cool water to mix it thoroughly. If it was too watery, I added a bit more powder. If it came out like dough, I added a little water. I mixed it with a paint stick until it had the consistency of creamy peanut butter. The mortar is at the right thickness when it stays still and doesn't drip off the stick. One paper cup load back buttered 3 tiles and where they went on the wall. Dries hard well before 30 minutes. Awesome stuff! Did the job.

I didn't want to buy a 25 lb bag of mortar to fix a few tiles but I didn't find this as a good alternative. I ended up throwing it away and starting over with regular mortar. The directions are not correct. You need a LOT more water than it says. Directions say you need 4 oz of water per tub. More like 10 oz. To add to this, it's so lumpy that you have to work the lumps out so much and it starts to set before you can use it. Lastly, the volume is off. Package says it will cover 2 - 3 square ft. I disagree. If you are lucky you MIGHT lay one 12 x 12 tile. If you are using a 1/8th in or maybe 1/4 in notched trowel, maybe. I would have used the whole tub to lay half of one tile. I've done a lot of tiling so I'm not a rookie. This does not work as promised. Maybe if you were fixing a few little 4 in tiles it would work. Anything more than that, not a good solution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Double the water and work quickly I guess its better than having to buy a 25lb bag for small repairs but I didnt expect to use it all on one 12x12 kitchen floor tile. If I had read the reviews first I would have seen that it needs twice the recommended amount of water. As I was trying to get the consistency right the product was already setting. Hope the tile sets properly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for small repair jobs Having a grandson who as a bathtime guerrilla loves to play with fixture, faucets, etc., I had to recement a ceramic soap dish he was using as a pullup bar. He wasn't hurt but it left me with a small repair. As I didn't want to buy a 25 lb bag of thinset, I gave this product a try. As mentioned in other reviews, I needed to add 8 oz. of water to get the correct consistency for the job. I mixed the grout in a wide disposable plastic dish. This made stirring and mixing much easier. The mixture was workable for about 15 to 20 minutes and gave plenty of time for rehanging the soap dish. For larger jobs, I would use regular thinset to extend the workability. I cured the repair overnight and found it to be secure. Overall, a decent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job and I didn't have to mix a 25 or 50 lb bag to do it! I had to do a patch job in my shower where I had to replace 18 4.25" x 4.25" shower tiles at the bottom of the shower walls. Instead of adding water to the mortar tub like it says on the package, I took some of the tile repair mortar out of the original plastic tub and put it in a 12 oz. hot/cold drink cup. If you mix it in the original tub, you could end up with lumpy, dry mortar that's hard to apply and it starts to cure in a few minutes. Since it dries so fast, take it out of the tub first, then mix it in a separate cup. It worked great that way. I put in about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of powder and slowly added 1/4 cup of cool water to mix it thoroughly. If it was too watery, I added a bit more powder. If it came out like dough, I added a little water. I mixed it with a paint stick until it had the consistency of creamy peanut butter. I used 6 cup loads to do all 18 tiles. Doing it this way, I was able to do all the tiles and didn't have to worry about wasting a whole tub of mortar powder. The mortar is at the right thickness when it stays still and doesn't drip off the stick. One paper cup load back buttered 3 tiles and where they went on the wall. Dries hard well before 30 minutes. Awesome stuff! Did the job. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small repair Our son decided to use our ceramic soap dish as a step stool to get something on the shower window sill. Down came soap dish and one adjacent shower tile. I added water and stirred for a couple minutes (I didn't go by the directions, added water until I had the consistency of yogurt). Set in a short amount of time and I was grouting 2 hours later and caulked the soap dish the following morning. I wouldn't use this for anything other than small repair jobs and the bond seems very strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I had one 4x4 tile come loose in my shower floor. Mastic would not work due to the water exposure. I did not want nor need a 25 lb bag of thin set for a 4 inch tile so this was perfect. Another huge plus is the quick set time to I was able to apply the grout and complete the repair after 2 hours. Consistency was fine but personally, I would add enough water to get a yogurt consistency, not what is stated on the container.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Time Sensitive Mortar I bought the Tile Repair Mortar to fix some loose stones in my shower floor. It is a pebble floor that I installed a few years ago. Following the directions closely, I felt the mortar was too thick with the specified amount of water. By the time I got it stirred well it was already getting harder (about like playdough). Looking back I would have used more water to thin it a little more. By the time I was finishing the 1'x1' area it was getting very hard, almost too hard to get the stones to stick or to dig it out of the container. The whole job took about 30 min. Once it was all in (kind of clumpy at the end and not spreadable) it did dry solid and the stones were good to go. I added the grout later, which covered up all the clumps and now that it's been a month of twice daily use its still holding. I wanted a mortar that would hold up under constant water flow and pressure from standing on it and it seems to be working. It's a small container so you don't have to waste a bunch by buying a larger bag.
