I wouldn't trust a $15 suction cup on a piece that size. It would work for moving after it's on the wall. If you want something that will hold and pick the pieces up will run $100 at minimum.

Treat the wall and the deck like a shower pan. Water proof the wall and the deck, emphasis on where they meet. Put the deck in first, run tile off it, silicon the joint.

Most of the granite sold for countertops is not even real granite, it's a way to simplify for the masses instead of a geology lesson with each color.

Find someone who can apply DryTreat for you.

Does look like efflorescence. Try some vinegar and water and clean a small area, if it works that's your answer.

Hey Karl, have you used Inalco Slimm? The ones I have used all seem a little different. Some are a little harder than I prefer. Coming from Miami so I figured I'd ask.
