A stunning swimming pool can be the centerpiece of your outdoor space, providing a refreshing oasis for relaxation and enjoyment.

Cracked or loose tiles not only compromise the pool’s appearance but can also lead to more significant issues if left unattended. In this guide, we’ll explore how to effectively repair swimming pool tiles using Novagard Swimming Pool Tile Adhesives and Grouts.
Novagard Pool and Spa Tile Adhesive is a single-component glue designed for bathroom, swimming pool, and spa installations. Its non-corrosive, fast-tack formula with high green strength ensures an early bond. This low-odor adhesive is ideal for bonding ceramic tiles without the need for mixing. Here’s how to apply it:
- Preparation: Clean the damaged area, removing any debris or old adhesive.
- Application: Install the adhesive tube in a Ratcheting Caulking Gun for Novagard Tile Adhesive and Grout Tubes CG9, apply Novagard tile adhesive glue onto the substrate.
- Tile Placement: Press the tiles firmly onto the adhesive, using tile spacers to maintain even gaps.
- Final Touch: Once cured, use a damp sponge to clean off excess adhesive for a neat finish.
- Curing: Allow the adhesive to cure for 24-48 hours, ensuring a rubber-like solid bond.
Installation Notes: Work with a small area at a time, and avoid using this adhesive below the waterline on tiles less than 3″ x 3″.
