Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to apply I found the same problem as another reviewer, the product is very hard to apply to a vertical surface. It has the consistency of bread dough, a lot falls to the floor and if you trowel over where it has been applied it pulls it off the wall instead of flowing together. I have done a lot of tile work using other pre mixed and mix your self thin set and this product is the worst. I have sent my wife to get a different product that I have used in the past to finish the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pros and Cons Pros - Very easy to work with - No wasted product - Washes off tools/hands easy - Dries fast is using a 3/16 trowel - Easy to use for wall tile - Very Strong once dry Cons - 5x the price of regular thin set - Larger than 3/16 trowel it will take a few days to dry * If using on concrete, take in mind that concrete has moisture in it and will take a little longer to dry than concrete based products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pre-Mixed Thin-set Run! I purchased this product to put some floor tiles in a bathroom. I am on day 6 and this stuff doesn't dry. Expensive tiles that may have to be pulled up to redo the whole job. Do you know what happens when you tell your wife "it won't be long and you can have your bathroom back" ? It doesn't go well. If any one suggests this product to you...RUN away. I would never recommend this product and don't even know how they can stay in business. What a total waste of my time. I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWEFUL!! Never dries. Stay away!!! SMELLS!! Aweful!! Never dried!! The PDF help file should be included on the HomeDepot website as it states this product cannot be used in many places (read the pdf it is funny). And you CANNOT use it with a membrane. I installed -- waited 4 weeks and it never dried. I had to remove all tiles (and membrane) and start all over. I am not sure who this is useful for -- but I suggest STAY AWAY!! And it smells like petrol -- huge headache from smell alone!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn't recommend it to a friend...or worst enemy My husband and I are very experienced renovators. We have flipped many homes, and have done custom tile work on both floors and showers in most of them. When purchasing thin set for a current project, due to the way Home Depot had the products displayed, it looked like this product was all they had in stock. This thin set product is horrible to apply to a vertical surface. It has far too much air in the product itself, and thereby does not adhere to the wall, just falls off your trowel. It has the look and feel of that "fluff" stuff kids like to play with - you know, kind of like playdoh, but not quite as dense. Both my husband and I came up with some brand new combinations of expletives as we tried to work with it. The worst part is, this morning, a full day after doing the tile work, the tiles are falling off the wall as I remove my spacer system! Really? Not worth the money, or the promised convenience. My husband is at Home Depot this morning buying brand new thin set to redo all the work we did yesterday. I'm taking pictures and taking the almost empty pail of Simple Set back to Home Depot for a full refund. SKIP this product - ask the Home Depot sales person where to find the regular, mix it yourself thin set.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wouldn’t Similar issues to others: 1. The product is quite dry-similar to bread dough 2. Hard to apply on a vertical surface-the notched side of the trowel will pull off a lot of material I wanted a pre-mixed thinset product appropriate for wet areas to save time. Boy was I wrong! This was the only product at Home Depot that met that criteria! Very disappointing for a premium priced product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time -- useless. DO NOT BUY!!! Home Depot does not do enough to highlight this should not be used anywhere (as you can read in the PDF online) -- very limited applications. You cannot apply this to any membrane system. After installing, it remained "wet" for 4 weeks. Now, I have to remove all of the tiles and start over. What a waste of time!!! Warnings should be offered when selling such a product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UNRELIABLE PRODUCT After following manufacturer's instruction..we were impressed with the "ease" of working with this product HOWEVER. 24 hours later when we walked on our floor...5 tiles broke..STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT...

Can I use this to install ceramic tile over a painted basement concrete floor? We've tried scraping the paint off but it has strongly bonded to the concrete.

Asked by: TJ63
I personally would not do it. The water in the mortar takes a long time to dry and the moisture content in the concrete will probably keep the mix wet for weeks. I installed in an upstairs bathroom and it took a week. I would go with standard mortar you have to mix yourself.
