    So since the beebs is a well known place to get great input and info.

    I am installing an inground fiber glass pool, with a spill over spa.
    I live up north (Montréal, Canada) Winters do exist here ! :)

    So any recommandations on what to use to stick the porcelaine tiles on the spill over spa ?

    If needed, tomorrow I'll put up some pics, if it might help.

    Nah, not yet. There's probably at least 2 guys on this forum who's day job is to tile fiberglass pools, give them time to reply tonight when they get off work. :)

    Not likely, but this is the US Independence Day. When they sober up from all the cheap American beer they'll answer.

    I’ll check with my step-dad. He’s been in the pool tile business for YEARS. Might be a few days before I get an answer, though.

    So here are pics of the set-up.
    Looking to put titles on the over flow, from the spa to the pool.

    What was used to stick the current edge on to the pool?

    On another note:
    How many frogs have taken up residence there?

    So, I tried. He’s been out of the game too long (7 years) and couldn’t give me specifics. He said it’s a silicone-based caulk-like compound that’s basically a glue. But he couldn’t remember the exact name. Sorry.

    Why are you worried about this? Why isn't your pool guy taking care of this?

    PL 100 to stick the blocs but I would need glue that will withstand submurgen.

    lollll the pool has been in since last november.

    Thnx I do appreciate you taking the time.

    Cause the SOB said he'd do it and now has back-off from doing it.
    So I'm on my own to find the info.
    Installing won't be an issue, I just would like to do it ONCE... If I use the wrong glue, it'll come right off come the first winter.

    Is that a good answer to why I'm worried about it ??? ;) lol
    I'm tryibng to not loose lots of sleep over this but it ain't happening unfortunatly. :(

    Have you spoken with a supplier? They can usually tell you what the tile manufacturer recommends.

    I have but a bit skeptic on the answer that was given to me. The supplier that I dealt with, doesn't really provide items to pool installers and I figured the items for pool where specialty items.
    Wanted a second opinion from the all knowing Beebs :D

    My wife's uncle is a pool builder, but he does vinyl liner and gunnite, not fiberglass. We don't have the same extreme cold in GA, so I don't know if his input would be worthwhile.

    Call a pool supply store...or if you have purchased the tile already, call the manufacturer's rep. The mfr's web page is usually a decent source.

    Indeed... his input might not be what I'd be looking for but you never know. These talk amongs themselves.

    I will call the supplier and get a chat with the manager or owner to see if he can point me in the right direction.

    Thanx for your time guys, really appreciate it.
