    Question Adhesive for Pool Tiles?

    I am renovating a pool that has a liner and water-line tiles most of the way around. The liner dips down under the stairs (which are tiles), and the row of water-line tiles follow the liner down around the stairs.

    I want to replace all the water-line tiles.

    Can anyone tell me what is a suitable adhesive, and what is a suitable grout for this permanently underwater application? Are there any other sealing or curing steps that are necessary?

    I'd imagine it depends on whether the tiles in question are above the settled water line or constantly underwater.

    If they're above the waterline and only subject to "frequent" wetting then I'd think any wet-area adhesive would do the trick:

    Selleys Unifix

    If underwater I'd think something more specific/specialised would be required:

    Ultima is a glue designed for this application.
