Sorry Davy. I meant nothing against your mud bridge. My only point was that tape is eezypeezy and did the job righteous in this particular case. :)

Whatever works. I am no stranger to unconventional techniques and certainly have no criticism for the tape job. Probably a bit quicker than the some bridge contraption for the job at hand. If it...

I'll take tile the size of a quarter anyday over that stuff. One chip in a Bisazza tile and you're lookin at a couple minutes replacing it. A chip in one of those large panels and you have a day...

That's for sure. Meander around the site for a few and you can see the utter pain and frustration. I learned a while back that tile setting requires a good eye for detail and that it's something...

That's a pretty big undertaking. What is the pool shell made of? Gunite? Fiberglass?

Good question Jeff. If I were to take a guess I'd say around 70-75% prep. The contractor I usually work with has a gunite crew that is spot on. I need to add an average of 1/2" mortar to brown out...

I don't think the water would be a problem. In this case the auto cover slides over the edge on the long side of the pool. In a matter of a few months the tile edge would be looking pretty shabby....

I noticed. Dry cut inside no less with no lung protection or safety glasses. Looks like agglomerate tile and I've heard the adhesives used in those can be pretty nasty.

As for ear plugs, I have...

Me too. Me neither.

If I were installing larger format tile I would buy one. It would pay for itself inna day if it was nearly as good as it looks on the video.

I haven't set large format tile or stone in years. When I did I had a wet "fat" mortar bed. Sometimes not so wet but what this guy is setting on looks awful dry to me and I don't consider that wet...

That's pretty much as far as I would compliment the guy's skills, other than he has a good eye. That in itself is worth complimenting. However the way he taps the buttered tile into dry walls and...

What is on the face of the spillway really shouldn't matter. Kinda. The water migration is causing all the efflorescence. Whether it's coming thru the shell or just falling back to the wall from the...

Pictures? What does the surface look like? I use sand and portland cement and bond it with a portland slurry. I use Anti-Hydro in the mortar and slurry.

Since it is drying out it would be water migration of some sort. My guess would be that the marble has voids in the thiset behindthe tile where the water moves thru and ends up dropping to areas...

Hi Paul. Do you have any pictures of the area? Do you know what grout was originally used and is now eroding? I ask because generally speaking cementious grout shouldn't erode away. I've seen it...

I'm just not a fan of epoxy. I've seen it erode in pools in a relatively short span of time. It's color doesn't hold up in a lot of applications in my experience. I just don't see the benefit for it,...

How set are you on the height of the benchtop? You could add another piece of Durock on top with thinset, using more thinset in back to do the slope. Not by the book but it would work. You could even...
