    I've just bought a pair of Site ones from screwfix, only started wearing them yesterday so I'll let you know how I get on with them and, more importantly, how long they last.

    I'd fought with a fair few to be honest! Lath and plaster > BAL Primer > BAL Whitestar (or Grip was it back then before the new Grip came out agan?) - lethal combination. Replaced walls just to retile a splashback lol

    Ahhhh there you go then. Swear I saw them in the blue pilks packaging, and originally remembered some in white johnsons packaging. Lots and lots of dust on them. Back in the topps tiles days. Notice the colour was taken from a sample of vomit in the picture. lol

    Has it been finished long? Might just be moisture still in the floor maybe and the grout colour is quite susceptible to moisture? Just thinking out loud.

    They're not stone, this has been posted in the wrong forum category. I'll move it over. Chicken tiles were made by Johnsons Tiles in the, what, 80's? And accidentally the pattern on the front if put the right way up would look like chickens. Although they weren't meant to be, and some fitted them in a random direction, customers did used to complain and assume they were all meant to go with the chicken standing the right way up. I'll try to find you a picture. Some horrible colours back then. Seen loads of tiles on top of tiles in kitchens, and when you pulled off the first layer, chicken tiles were under them. I bet that's happening less and less these days though. I've not seen it mentioned for a long long time lol so you might just be the last!!

    It's a whole tile, ceramic. There isn't really anything to grout once they're fitted, they just butt up to each other.

    Howdy all, I know this has been discussed a couple of times but, I'd like a couple of opinions if you'd be so kind. A customer wants these tiles fitted in a shower and I've said that it shouldn't be done due to the fact that they are butt jointed so there won't really be any grout joints. Will tanking make any difference or should I be politely asking them to choose another tile?

    What adhesive have you used? Was it a ready mixed (tubbed) or, a powdered (bag) one?
