I see that Del Conca has a grout-less mortar-less tile product.

Sort of like the floating engineered wood floors. I'm wondering if this actually works well, or if its it's just a gimmick.

The installation video shows that there is a locking spline used between the tiles. There is also an acoustic underlayment installed under the tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZK8VHJaYvow

One would need a very flat floor - but I don't know if any flatter than needed for large format tiles.

Never saw that before, but having installed ceramic floors (in past life) and helped in laminate flooring (which I am not a big fan on).

My bet is this would work well and live up to its hype.
And for the right application (or a speed thing, someone's in a hurry)
it may be ideal.

Thank you for sharing the link, I learned something again here on this
amazing forum.

At the website there is a close up shot of the tile joint. It doesn't look water proof -but it's tight. I wonder what happens if the dog pees on the floor - will it leak through or not?

Ha..love my dog too but accidents happen!

My bet is it leaks through.
The porcelain is forgiving and easy to clean but underneath.
But...
Wonder if you could easily enough, pop the tile out and clean up
and pop it back in again?
