Well look what happened to some plonker who said this to me. The floor without the clips is obvious and by pure coincidence I finished one yesterday were clips were used. I got a call by a plumber friend asking me to quote to finish the job that the ‘tiler’ who wouldn’t use clips got threw off, so I visited site yesterday to find this :eek:

    No leveling clips and spacers will ever make a bad bowed tile look good on any floor

    If it’s a good floor and bowed planks, they will make them look good and straighten them out Brian

    I have to say that I have yet to find a bowed tile that hasn't benefited from levelling clips

    I tiled a floor in similar planks without clips - no lips.
