It has worked on our tiles and was easy to do. Just follow the video and we bought a small bit to drill the holes at the sides of the tiles, being careful not to crack or break the tile. Brushed away the grout that had been drilled out and stuck the tube into the holes with a caulking gun and pushed as much of the Fix A Tiles adhesive as possible. The longest time was the 24 hours of letting the stuff cure. We put big buckets of water on the tiles and left them the full 24 hrs. The stuff at the side dried clear and was easy to clean up. We cleaned up the excess before we put the buckets on the tiles and only used a damp sponge and water. The stuff reminds me of Elmers glue as it has the same consistency and dries clear like the glue does, but there is so much more and the ad. says it will last a lifetime. Good thing to do BEFORE your tiles crack and break, then you will have to replace them. Read Less

I had three kitchen tiles that were almost completely hollow and one that rocked when you stepped on the edge. If you have missing grout in an area don't try to squeeze the adhesive there, drill a hole elsewhere and watch for it to reach the area with the missing grout. Just be sure to put a weight on the tiles and this product will fix them. I can recommend this product without hesitation.

My grout lines are already crumbling around the lose tile (I can vacuum up bits of grout). Can I just clean out the grout line and inject this? I'm afraid it won't build up enough pressure to get under the tile. Or, should I re-grout the tiles, let the grout fully harden, then install the adhesive?

I had missing/crumbling grout about the length of 6 tiles. I drilled/applied through holes on the nonmissing sides. Worked fine.
If your grout is missing from all 4 sides of a tile I would think you can just lift the tile, apply adhesive, and set back into place. Actually, I would have preferred to have had that situation. Would have been much faster and cleaner.

(Normally this is a 2-step process, but I was concerned about the vacant area underneath the 5-ft wide wall, so I used a wire clothes hanger to determine the depth of the vacant area). I filled this vacant area first, THEN I re-grouted the entire area. (2) The next day, after the grout was dry enough to drill, I drilled several holes in the grout and used the product to fill the hollow areas. Once an area is filled, it will probably start oozing out of another drilled hole. You probably won't be able to fill every hollow spot, but this product works well. There will still be the white adhesive showing in the drill holes. (3) Wait until the next day, and this white stuff should disappear as the adhesive dries underneath, and you can then replace the grout in the drilled areas.
IF your grout is not cracking, just drill holes and go from there... Read Less

once you apply it and it comes out on the opposite side , move on to another grove.
you can regrout after the tile dries after a day.
another thing, if the grout is coming out easily and the tile is shaking very badly, i would try removing the shaking tile , replace it with a new one .
if there are no cracks on your tile, do try the adhesive first!
its less work and do hold very strong.

If they are not, remove as much as the old loose grout as possible and re-fill the grout joints. Grouting is always done above the tiles, and this product wouldn't do the job at all.
For grout joints wider than 1/8" thick, you will need to install sanded grout. For thinner joints, apply non-sanded grout.

Answer: 
That is the actual purpose of the product. If the tiles are completely loose and can be pulled up, I would apply the product to the bottom of the tile and floor to assure a good bond. working through drilled holes may require you to do it twice if you do not get a good product flow. If you can remove the thinset and reapply, it would be a lot cheaper.

Yes! It is ridiculously awesome for this. I had the worst situation imaginable, with almost an entire 7'x7' area of 24x24 porcelain tiles coming completely loose. This made the floor rock solid, way better than it was when the tiles were installed several years ago. I used 10 tubes for that, so don't think one tube will be enough, unless you just have one tile loose.

The gap between the ceramic tiles in my kitchen floor is very narrow, around 1/16", can I use this product to inject into the grout hole of 1/16"?
Otherwise can I easily squeeze this product and fill it in a syringe with thin head (1/16") to inject to the small grout hole? Is this product more like a liquid glue or tooth paste?

I also had a very small grout line probably 1/16, def less than 1/8. You would have to carefully force the tip against the hole that you drilled. Some of the product will likely spill out, just maneuver it at slightly different angles as you're squeezing the caulking gun until you find a good spot where it's going under the tiles and not coming out up top.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised Works great when used properly. Make sure the hole in the grout and the tip cutoff match (the tip needs to fit snug in the hole). Since this is a repair job, you don't know what's under the tile. Indeed, in some holes I managed to inject half a tube; in others nothing. You may have to drill additional holes if some don't accept any adhesive. In total, I used about 4 tubes over a dozen tiles. The end result was no more hollow sound or moving tiles in a high traffic area. September 17, 2016
