Reattaching tile that has fallen off of an inground pool is quite simple , you will need a small flathead screwdriver a small hammer and some tile-set. you can purchase the tile -set at home depot .first you make sure all loose cements around the tile are removed the hammer and screwdriver can be used to chip away the grout on the sides of the remaining tiles .check to see if the tile that has fallen off will fit back in place nice and flush. mix up a small amount of tile set depending on how mwny tiles have fallen off, to a whipcream texture. apply a even amount to the back of the tile place it back in its proper place tap it a little with the blunt end of the screwdriver allow to dry and grout back over it , grout is what fills the joints in between the tiles .grout can also be purchased at the home depot.

We wondered if she had fallen off the pier. Dad didn't want to admit that he had taken a drink and fallen off the wagon. He wasn't hurt even though he had fallen off the roof.

I use a tile nipper a lot. These are great to use when a small piece needs to be cut off of a tile. First, score the tile with a tile cutter. Then use the tile nipper to break the small piece off. There are also times that a piece didn't break off all the way when snapping it with the tile cutter. When this happens, you can also use the tile nipper to break the rest off.

Soften it by rubbing a rag with Goof Off on it, then scrape it with a craft knife.

If something has fallen off, it might mean one of several things. It could mean that an object has slipped off the surface it was sitting on, and fallen. It could also mean that something has decreased.Examples of both meanings:The vase has fallen off the shelf and broken.Business has fallen off since that new store opened.

If you mean from the back off tile that has come off a wall or floor - soak the tile for 3-4 hours in hot water, then most glues will wipe off. If you mean glue that has got on front of laid tile, use a sharp craft knife to get under the edge and flick it off.

Mastic is a common adhesive for floor tile. It is laid with a notched trowel to ensure that there are grooves in the adhesive that allow for expansion once the tile is replaced. Using a damp cloth, be sure to wipe up any excess that oozes up to the surface.

Yes, it does . Old tile glue will ball up and mess your job.

It depends on the tile, but it will come off only with water.

It depends on the type of ceramic adhesive. Many of them can be taken off tile with lacquer thinner on a rag.

You scrape off the lumps first, then use Goof Off . You can pick it up at your local hardware store.

You CAN place tile over tile, but saying you can put tile over tile is like saying you CAN jump off of a bridge. It's just simply not a good idea. It can cause air pockets to be created under the tile laid on top, which can lead to cracked tiles if anything is dropped on them or sometimes simply by walking on them. It's worth the time to go ahead and strip the tile off of the floor before laying any new tile.

Scrape it gently with a craft knife held nearly parallel to the tile.

NO, you might think so at first, but the tile will fall off.

I believe that nail polish remover would take it off the tile.

Don't do it. Beat the old off with a hammer.

In the reverse way you took it off, of course.

Carpet absorbs sound. It just bounces off tile.

If it is vinyl tile and it's latex paint, rubbing alcohol will remove it. If it is a ceramic or porcelain tile, you can carefully scrape it off or if it is also latex paint, the same thing,,,alcohol will remove it.

If it's ceramic tile use a knife or scissor and scrape it off. Ceramic is virtually indestructible.If its linoleum use nail polish remover.

Tile saw, the blade runs in water and is like a small table saw. Cut off saw can use water but usually is dry and is a chop saw. The blade come down into the tile or brick which is in the stationary base.
