Correct adhesive for mosaic tiles
I need to fix mosaic tiles on a vertical surface, 300mm in depth. The substrate is half shower tray and half plastic fascia strip.
Unfortunately we have no product stocked at Screwfix which we can recommend for this type of application, we would advise contacting your local Screwfix Representative for assistance.

I need adhesive to refix nine tiles on a pipe box in my kitchen ,would this product be suitable.
The original fix was some sort of mastic.The mastic has lost its adhesion to the plywood substrate (which is quite firmly fixed) forming the pipebox but well bonded to the tiles. Got the tiles of but need to refix - dont need a large tub .This product looks like what i need ,just thought i would check before ordering.
Provided that the tiles are no larger than 200x200mm this product will be suitable.

Does this require a primer?
Had a problem with the bottom row of tiles in my shower. The original plasterboard they were attached to was damaged and needed to be patched with a 40cm x 5cm replacement piece. If I use this adhesive and grout do I need to use a primer on the bare plasterboard first or will it be fine as is? I don't intend skimming/plastering the repair patch.
Mapei Waterproof Fix & Grout White 1.5kg can be used to apply tiles directly to clean plasterboard without the need of a primer.

Is this cement suitable for swimming pools?
I need a cement that I can use to repair tiles at the water line in an open air swimming pool
Mapei Waterproof Fix & Grout White 1.5kg is an internal wall tiling adhesive and grout for use in intermittent wet areas such as shower enclosures and would therefore be unsuitable for this particular application.
