Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HRec Used over 30 Tubes and Just Ordered More - Amazing, Money Saving Product
I first used this product when only the manufacturer out of FL sold it (2013). I was very skeptical and ordered just two tubes since I thought I was looking at a $10,000 tile replacement. The owner (Tracy Hilton) answered my emails quickly. The first tube went into the black hole of my loose tile never to come out of any other drilled holes. My first thought was, “This is going to be very expensive”! I used up the second tube, weighted down the area in question, and the next day the tiles were solid as a rock! My neighbors were impressed and I immediately ordered more. Since I needed it the next day, I emailed Tracy a shipping label and she drove it to FedEx and dropped it off for me. As a woman that owns my own business, I appreciate that she goes the extra mile like I have to do myself for customers. I ended up using about 30 tubes and the hardest part was matching up my old non-existent grout color, not the Fix-a-Floor application. Home Depot sells another product – a grout dye that solved that problem. I had to order my color on their website since it was not a stock color. The tile dept employee was great. He had to call the manufacturer, get the sku that was not in the HD system, then he phoned me back to let me know it was on order for me! The Home Depot dye product was easy clean up and after months of foot traffic you cannot tell that I dyed the grout lines. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE, BUY ONE OR TWO TUBES LIKE I DID FOR A TEST, THEN BUY THE CASE.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alligator The Fix-a-Floor worked fine and was relatively easy to use.
It did the job and was relatively easy to apply. The tile is secure once again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1234 It Works
It work like they say it will. You need to buy double what you think you will need. I have large tiles and it took 12 10oz tubes to fix about 8 tiles that were in bad shape. And if you have large tiles you will need to drill more holes if the tile is hollow in the middle. Some people said after they got done they still have hollow tile sound it the middle and I think the reason is that the glue starts to some out the other holes before it gets the whole tile filled in. While you are filling tile with glue knock on tile and see if it is still hollow and if so drill more holes and keep filling to get tile solid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by miker415 This product works!
I have several areas in our house with loose and hollow tiles. I used Fix-a-floor to repair two separate sections of nine tiles so far. This product is simple to use and really works. Every tile that I applied the product to is now solid to the floor, doesn't have the crunching sound when stepped on, and no more hollow sounds when tapped on. Fix-a-floor will save me thousands of dollars not having to replace the entire flooring as our tiles are discontinued. I highly recommend this product to anyone that has a tile problem and likes to DIY and save money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shincbends Fear & Joy
Fear that my 17 1/2 ''x 17 1/2'' porcelain floor tile with a "very" narrow grout line could not be repaired using this product as I'd not be able to fit the point of the tube in to the small hole which needed to be drilled. Joy when it did. 24 hours later, all secure, no more rocking. Tip; The demonstration videos that you will find on-line showing the installer injecting in one hole and seeing Fix-a-Floor ooze out of the other 3 holes. I did not have this experience. Nothing came out of the other holes. So I injected Fix-a-Floor into all 4 holes

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drew Sure beats tearing up the floor!
After hiring a contractor to gut and remodel a foreclosed house that had been neglected for 2 years, his shortfall in failing to level the kitchen floor before tiling became apparent when all the grout started cracking out and tiles were bouncing and spongy in less than a month. After getting a quote of close to $2,000 to demo the tile, prepare the proper subfloor, and retile a 19x11 kitchen, I began to try ignoring the problem and reasoned I could overlook it.
Then I went to Home Depot and saw a display for this product, found a sales associate and asked about it. The associate didn't have any experience with it but reiterated that the product was guaranteed. I went home and did some research, watched the video and knew this was exactly what I needed.
I bought 1 bottle from Home Depot to test it. The bottle did not go very far as one 12x24 tile that was the biggest offender sucked up the entire $10 tube. BUT IT WORKED! I left an old 5 gallon paint bucket filled with water on it overnight before testing.
Another issue is my grout lines are thin, 1/16", but in some places they were slightly wider so they were able to accommodate the tip.
I ordered a case online to do the remaining problem tiles and went through 8 of the 12 tubes (plus the 1 bought in the store). Some tiles were worse than others, including one tile took close to 2 full tubes of adhesive, but others used only a quick squirt in the caulk gun. I'm glad I have some left over as it is cold now in Erie, PA and i'm interested to see how this will work with the expansion/contraction of the subfloor during and after the winter.
I used this product in mid July and it is now the end November and so far so good, with heavy foot traffic in a family of 3. Again, really interested to see what happens after the winter but this product has been worth every penny so far.
Cons: 1. The only areas i'm having light grout cracking is the areas in which I could not fit the tip into due to the grout line being too thin.
2. Clean-up will take a little elbow grease, use some Goof Off as the adhesive can be sticky on the tile

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sjohn Amazing Product!!!
I wasn't sure this would help me fix my hollow sounding tiles on my floor. I had about 20 12x12 tiles and figured it was worth trying before I ripped out the whole floor! I gave it a shot and couldn't believe how easy it was, those tiles are now solid! Amazing!!! Thank you Fix a Floor!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky Pretty decent stuff.
I was a bit leery something so seemingly simple would actually work but my fear of losing one of my ever-loosening 20" porcelain tiles for which I only have 2 spares compelled me to try something. This worked. Yes, it's just a glue but it comes in sealed cartridges you pierce, install the tips (supplied) and snip the tip to fit your grout spacing. Directions were clear so you shouldn't have any questions.
Some tips I learned along the way:
*Buy more than you think you will need. I pumped nearly an entire cartridge under 1 tile.
*If drilling grout, start with an obviously undersized bit and move up if needed, not the other way. Too close to the grout width and you'll chip the tile. The bit will move on you, too, so be prepared.
*If the glue doesn't flow freely into your drilled hole, drill again an inch or two down the grout line to try to hit the void where it meets the grout line. And face the fact you will need to remove and regrout the repair area afterwards and not simply fill-in the holes.
*Have a bucket of water and a rag handy to wipe-up as you move along.
*Allow the glue to settle and pump it again.
*It's nice to see your glue expelled from one of the holes you drilled but it may not. And watch for "blow-through" along your grout line. You may not notice it, at first, on a large tile so you may waste some glue before you do. Treat it like a game of Whack-a-Mole to pass the time.
*Have lots of things to use as weights to press the tile as the glue sets. I'm preparing to paint the exterior so I had 22 buckets of paint to use as weights. Worked great.
All in all, time and money well spent. The best part? I no longer cringe as my wife's high heel hits the (no longer hollow) tile, wondering if this is the one to crack it.
