        I needed to replace a couple of kitchen floor tiles due to chips. I didn't want to purchase the bag mix due to mixing and storing the remains. Simplest is premixed and has the hardening mixture premixed. Cleanup was a synch.

        DO NOT USE!!
        For my entire professional life I’ve always mixed my own thinset. For some reason on this 8’x10’ bathroom tile floor job I thought it would be easier to just buy the premixed stuff. Concrete slab floor. Thinset. Decoupling membrane. Thinset. Tile. Let set for 7 days, 62-65 degrees, <50% RH. Stepped in to start grouting and the tiles are sinking into the Thinset… evidently not cured yet!! If I could sue to have Home Depot come out and replace the floor, I would.

          This stuff is great!
          Probably spent too much on this bucket compared to buying a bag ans mixing my own, however the ease of it i think made it worth it. Spreads easily with a nice consistency, just loose enough it would fall off the trowel in a clump but not be dripping. Took ~5 lbs to cover our 6x8 accent wall, however some was wasted as we had to stop during the project, it dried to the wall and was scraped/chipped back off.

            I have read other reviews on this particular type of motor for tiles specifically and it was interesting to see that other people did not think of it as highly as I did. This is all I’ve ever been using. And I have always thought if only the Egyptian’s have these kind of building materials, the pyramids made with been built differently After 3 to 4 days, this material dries as hard as stone. It would be extremely difficult, if not impossible to remove the tile from the wall. Basically, this is what you want. I will continue to use the premixed insect until I find something better. Which I am not counting on.

            Didn’t dry
            What an unbelievable mess. Let tiles set 48 hours. Noticed after a few days, all tiles moving and sounded hollow. Tried Fix-A-Floor product. That was also garbage. So pulled up tiles after a month and surprised to find thinset was not fully cured and what was scraped off like dry drywall mud and nothing like cement or mortar. Just get the real stuff in a bag to avoid this fiasco.

              This was my 14th bucket of pre-mixed mortar which I have purchased for my project and I was extremely disappointed because it had hard lumps about 3/4 inch all through the mix. This did not allow it to spread evenly and put a tile on it level.

              Will not dry
              Applied this product to Master shower and went on vacation. It has yet to dry and some of the tiles even moved and became hollow. Well, redoing this again 🙄

                Great for a DIYer/avoiding pulling out the mixer
                I laid 6x18 tile using this less than 24 hours ago and I cannot even move the tile! I am not sure what the bad reviews are about. I made sure to dampen my plywood and back butter my tiles. Only reason for 4 stars is because it is pricey in my opinion and does not cover much area.

                  It doesn't dry
                  This stuff is crap. I let it sit for 3 days and it still hasn't set. I used a bag for half the floor and that area it solid. They need to take it off the market.
