Hi, I’m Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I’ll show you how I solve problems. Let’s make things better together.

So, we’re getting ready to make some grout on the tile in this Sistine stone sliding glass door corner shower, that’s a long name.

And what I usually do. I mean, I can mix it up in big pans, but we have a very small space and a big buckets, and stuff like that. But we have a small, small space. So, what I’m going to do is pour water in here, this is not real level, I’ll just for the whole bottle.

Then this is a inexpensive well, white dry grout. It’s not sanded, non-sanded. So, it will not scratch tile and look real smooth. This is stuff you would put in the bathroom areas and glass tile. So don’t you scratch your tile, things like that when it’s real easy to clean out. Sanded would go on places like the main walking area, things like that.

Then I have a battery powered drill to make sure those little deals there are sticking out. This is come from a mixer that you would use at home to mix up


Eggs or whatever. And I got that at Goodwill, and I just buy them up for a quarter, fifty cents a piece and stick them on the truck and use them for all different kinds of things. Fast mud. Grout. Floor leveler. It’s a little bit soupy for what I want so I’m going to add some more. Think I may have to add a little more water now, too much.

All right. Now it looks like it’ll be fine.

This is Phil Bridges, if you like what you saw and think it might be helpful to somebody else, push that like button and let other people know what you and I know, and we’ll work together toward making a brighter future. By the way, we’re not Amera-Can’ts we’re Americans. See you next time.
