Using hydro as thin set

Guy I work for does a lot of tile reset/grout repair in local restaurants. Does that seem ok or are we putting band-aid on problem areas?

Welcome to the forum.

I'm going to say "no", without even asking all the other questions that your post brings to mind. I can't even imagine how hydroban would be used to set tile.

I'm still wondering what "hydro" might be, Kevin.

Well, I guess I saw the "hydro" part and my brain filled in the "ban" part on its own.

Still, the whole thing is a mystery.

Welcome, mofish.

Are you talking about adding a milk additive to grout and using that to both set and grout the tile?

I thought he meant hydraulic cement like what you use to patch up leaks in a foundation: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Quikrete...2620/100318534
