    Tile repair

    I have an old pool and two pieces of small tile at the water line has popped off.

    I'm wondering what people use to patch pool tiles? Any thing special to watch out for?

    Thanks

    Welcome to TFP!!

    If it's above the waterline, you can quick patch them back in with a little silicone caulk If they are below waterline, you'll need to drain the pool down below them and use a waterproof 'thinset' to do the replacement - if you go this way, make sure that the rest of the tiles are still well secured before refilling the pool! i.e. sound the tiles and rip off and reapply any that might fall off next week

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
