    Repairing 3x3 waterline tile that fell off

    A couple of my waterline tiles fell off on a corner of my pool. Is there any special way to reinstall these? Is there a special mortar and grout to use? I've done tiling in my house but nothing in the pool before.

    You can use the same mortar and grout. More than what you see may have come loose. Like all work, correct prep is the key to a successful job. Johnbridge.com is the foremost tile forum on the net for a DIY job.

    Thanks.

    I'm a member over on johnbridge.com already for in-home tiling. I was thinking there was a special water-proof mortar to get it to set right, but maybe not.

    I set mine with conventional mortar....so far, so good. You could use epoxy but it is harder to work with, I think.
