    How to repair loose tiles

    I have several tiles that have popped off or were loose that we have removed around the spa area of my pool. I have cleaned off the backs of all of the tiles and the concrete. I think the pool will need to be remodeled (tile and plaster) in the next year or so, but I am hoping to make it a little longer before spending that kind of money. What can I use to glue the tiles back? I am assuming I need to use a thin set mortar and grout, but does it need to be a something special designed for pools/outdoor use? Thank you all so much for your help!!

    No. Standard thinset and grout will work. Use the kind that is fortified with latex...it's very common and available at HD or Lowe's.
