    My friend's son, who lives in Las Vegas, asked about how to repair the tile work along his pool. Mortar? Grout? Adhesive? Is there a specialty product for this?

    It looks to be bad all the way back even under what looks good. I would take it all back and rebuild the surface with a finisher product then find the closest match I could find and reset all the tiles.

    I am not a tile man nor a pool man though.

    First thing I would do is hit that water with a lot of shock or drain it. Looks to be other damage inside the pool as well. The whole pool needs pressure washed and that wouldn’t hurt at the area of this repair in finding what was loose.

    There are pool companies that will rip off the old tile, chip out some bad plaster, add new tile and reline with a fresh coat of plaster.The Last time I had it done to my pool, it cost me about $4800. Sure I could probably do it, but they are specialists.
