    Best material for replacing pool tiles

    Folks,
    Any particular favorite adhesives / cements for tile replacement? I have 3 small tiles that have fallen off the pool side, above the water line. We've had a very cold winter by Houston standards, not sure if that has had anything to do with it. I'm sure I can pick something up from Amazon that will do the trick, but am never too proud to ask and learn even with a small job like this one.

    Thanks in advance.

    A thin-set mortar should work for you. Preferably, one rated for use under water such as these:

    Any thin-set mortar will probably work well enough if you can't find a product such as the ones above. It's probably not worthwhile to track down a special thin set for just a few tiles. Try to get a mortar that matches the grout you will use.
