Hi everyone, I am in the process of finishing my basement and am just about ready to do some floor tile. My issue is that in one particular location I have a access cover to a backflow proventor where I want to tile. It is very level and flush with the rest of the floor so I would have no issues going over it but don't believe it is the right thing to do. Is there a product or a process I should use to keep this accessable without having a loose piece of tile over top of the cap?
I am assuming you are talking about ceramic or porcelain tile. If you lay out your floor so one tile will cover your b/f preventor, you could just put some silicone sealer on the bottom, enough to have it not wiggle when it sets up, and then just use matching caulk instead of grout around it. You should be able to remove it easily in the future by just slicing the caulk with a utility knife and gently prying up the tile. Keep a couple of spares in case it would crack.
