Can I used this product to set my glass tiles on my backsplash...
Asked by: Frank
Yes. And much easier than mixing your own. Just be careful how long you leave the bucket open so it doesn't dry out.

Can i use this stuff to install my mosaic kitchen backsplash.

Asked by: Vinnie
as always, read instructions on label. And ask your Home Depot tile person if this product will work on the "mosaic" tile that you choose. Size ,color and shape can make a difference in the mortar you use.

Is it good to use this to tape cement board

Asked by: kb123
This is what I used for smoothing a previous (sloppy) job. For the taped section, I moistened it very slightly and it worked fine. I only wish I had a "before" pix. Dries well, little to no cracking on thick spots.

SimpleSet White 1 Gal. Pre-Mixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 177.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'm tiling my porch floor with 6 inch tiles. I used regular mix thinset for most of the floor, b... I'm tiling my porch floor with 6 inch tiles. I used regular mix thinset for most of the floor, but used this pre-mixed thin-set for the edges where I had to trim tiles, and for my steps - that way I could work in smaller sections and focus on the cutting without worrying about my thin-set thickening up. Everything seemed great with this plan - the SimpleSet went on as expected the porch looked great. But - four days later the tiles with the SimpleSet were still wet. I pushed on a couple of them, and they squished right in. This hasn't improved, so tonite (a week later) I pulled the SimpleSet tiles up. I used just my hands - it was that easy. I scraped off the simpleset; tomorrow I will return to using mixed thinset. After some research I discovered the problem. In spite of what this says ('Thin-Set Mortar') that's not really what it is, at least not in the traditional definition of thin-set. Dry thin-set - the stuff you mix with water - is chemically cured, so it doesn't need air. SimpleSet is more like glue - it dries in the air. So if you aren't using small tiles, and don't use a very thin layer of SimpleSet, then it takes essentially forever to dry. It doesn't seem like this product is marketed correctly - it will not work for many traditional thin-set applications.

I am a professional installer and on my first use on a small bathroom floor (on cement board) took 3 days to cure for grout. After speaking with the so called HD specialist I was told it must have been a bad bucket. Took a credit and tried it again last week. Well I am 6 days past the install date and the tile still not fully set. When walking over the tile you hear the slight squishing sounds. This is in an air-conditioned and heated home, I even measured the home humidity at 46%. After doing more searching online I clearly fell a victim of a poor product with mislead HD employees. I had high hopes but its not worth the frustration of my customers. FYI: search about the product I have seen complaints with drying delays of as much as a month. I am once again returning the product NEVER to fall in the trap again.

Home Depot website claimed 175 sq. ft. coverage. As thin as I could spread the stuff it covered 90 sq.ft. The end results were as good as expected if short of the goal for one tub.

Coverage is a little less than expected depending on trowel notch size. Only used on small tiles; subway 3x6, 4x4 and fish scale not sure about larger tiles.

This was my first time installing tile and didn't want to have the mess of mixing or wondering if I got the consistancy correct.Although more pricey I was doing a small bathroom so it worked for me

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cotradicting installation instructions I used this product 2 years ago when installing pebble tile in a half-bath (over concrete slab) and finer pebble tile (much lighter) around and over the mirror over primed drywall. What I liked about this product is how well it grabbed the pebble sheets. Having had good results with the half-bath decided to go with this same product for a small upstairs bath's floor. The tiles are porcelain (6X6) laid in an intricate "rug"-like design. I could only do so many rows before I would have to walk on set tiles. Decided to call their tech support and ask if it would be OK to walk on the tiles after 2 days of drying. The first thing I was told is that "there are better products for floor installations". But the product's instructions are for walls and floors. But again was told that "we don't use it on floors”. What?? Then who wrote the instructions printed on the bucket? No answer. Only when the tech heard that the tiles were installed over hardibacker that he said I should not have any problems provided that I use an oscillating fan and a space heater for an additional day or two. Why such discrepancy between printed and verbal instructions. The tech support was not friendly at all. So you decide.
