    Hi all

    Hope you can help me, I've taken the old tiles off in the bathroom and bought some new ones which are 300x500. The walls have some adhesive where the old tiles come from but I've sanded this down and also filled some patches where plaster came of with the tiles, the question is do I pva the wall or just use tile adhesive, I have wickes super strength and evo stick super strength adhesive. Thanks

    I wouldn't use PVA as a primer for tiling at all.Prefer to use bagged adhesive and mix as required and never used wickes stuff .
    Please read the manufacturers instructions on the adhesive and see what they recommend
    We generally use SBR as preferred primer
