Questions & Answers

Can this be used on .32 thickness gauged slate floor tiles (12x12) ?

Asked by: Laura
As long as the surface is solid. Make sure to butter it enough so it touches all of the surface.

Will this adhere directly to drywall

Can you use this Thinset for 12x24 porcelain tile?

Asked by: Porkchop
Not recommended for anything over 8"x 8" due to long drying times. The manufacturer recommends a full 72 hours for 8"x 8", There are reports of this material not setting up for weeks on larger tiles on set on non-porous surfaces.

May I use it for shower wall or the wall surronding the bathtub?

I am trying to remodel the shower room, and want to use this pre-mix thin-set mortar, but HOME DEPOT workers said this pre-mix mortar can't be used for shower wall at all, because it will peel out after some time with steam. I get confused now. The instruction on the bucket of pre-mix thin-set mortar clearly shows that it is suitable for wet area like shower wall and walls surrounding bathtub. I have to ask you for a clear answer.
Asked by: david
I would not recommend this on any environment that is damp. This is not a portland cement product, and constant moisture will soften it, and the tile will eventually come up.

SimpleSet Gray 3-1/2 Gal. Pre-Mixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY!! The product is awful, does NOT dry. I had to redo all the tile I installed. Just take the time and buy regular mortar in the bags because this product is garbage.

I youtubed it and it seemed simple enough. I first bout mortar mix and mixed it myself. After I ran out of my first mix bag I decided to get the premixed mortar. The SimpleSet was too thick (I had to add water) and when applied on 3 tiles, it was still loose after a day. Thank goodness homedepot took it back (thats why i love homedepot). I then went and bought the mix mortar instead. Save yourself some headache and do not buy this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from In a word...frustrating... I’ve done a LOT of tiling including three entire bathrooms (showers/floors), and about 1200 square feet of floors and I’ve NEVER had a single tile pop or come loose after install. So when i decided to do a small (8x7) mud room floor I took the easy route and got the premixed for the first time. What a mistake!!! I gave the room three days to set and so far four have come loose as I got ready to grout!!!

First two batches I bought from the store were dry enough to completely dry in a day or two, but the third batch was so wet it was still uncured after 3-4 days! It was also difficult to spread on the walls with the trowel. However, it was quick and easy on the floors. If they could be more consistent on the moisture levels and better on the price, it could be a great product.
