Default Tile glue to use underwater

Does anyone ,who has their own pool know if you can buy "TUFMIX" or similar adhesive to fix tiles underwater in a swimming pool.Does the pool supply shop in Pollensa old town stock this?
I have a small number of missing tiles to fix and can buy the adhesive in the UK but it is not cheap and I dont want some security man at Luton thinking I have some type of plastic explosive in my hand luggage and taking it off me!

Not sure what its called but I think you can buy it in the shop in Pollensa.

It is two separate tubes of stuff that you mix together, a bit like araldite.

I stuck some tiles back on the bottom of the deep end of a pool at a villa we once rented as the owner could not get to the bottom of the pool and the previous renters had thrown chairs in the pool and damaged the tiles.

I don't swim very well at all (I swim like a brick ) so it was entertaining for those watching

Your post brought a smile to my face Mark as I could just visualise someone swimming 'like a brick' sticking tiles to the bottom of a pool! lol very brave! Well done.

If you can think of the name of this glue I would be very grateful.

Renters throwing chairs into the pool and breaking the tiles??? - nice people!
Be good to have a black list!

Thanks Mark,The stuff I want does come in 2 seperate parts and you kneed them together ,it is an epoxy and sets very quickly so I will try the pool shop in Pollensa.Luckily mine are in the shallow end so no swimming like a brick and I can keep the cigar going at the same time!

The stuff we where using was just like araldite, a white paste squeezed out of a tube that is mixed with a pea sized pieces of hardener from a small tube and it sets very quickly. Not putty as such and was a bit of a faff to use.

Cant find it with google but I did find 'Underwater Magic'

This looks even better as no mixing and is in a tube like silicone sealer and it sets by contact with water so should not go off in the tube if it is kept airtight and dry.

Underwater Glue

The video makes it look easy, if anyone tries some let us know here as I guess many property owners need an easy way to fix loose pool tiles.
