  3. Apply the adhesive to the back of the new tile by using a wide blade putty knife.
  4. Set the tile firmly in position and level it with the surrounding tiles and then tap in to place with a hammer and wood block.
  5. Leave for a couple of hours for the tile adhesive to set u and use a rubber grout float to spread the grout and fill the gaps between the tiles.
