    Hi guys,

    Im looking to tidy up a bit of boxing Ive had in the bathroom with tiles. As I understand it you shouldn't use PVA prior to tiling and after some googeling it seems sbr is the adhesive to use.

    Not to be a tight @ss but could anyone recommend a solution from screwfix or Toolstation that I could use please? If I have to buy 5 litres of the stuff (when I only need less than 1) then fair enough but ideally I wouldn't want to - unless of course I could get it from elsewhere given we're in lockdown?

    Thanks in advance

    You dont post a pic but if you are referring to say boxing-in pipework with ply then no problem using Pva.
    Dont use Pva in areas where it will be exposed to constant wet - eg wet walls or floors.
