Efloresence


I did a job where I re tiled a second floor balcony that was roughly 30'x20'. I stripped it down to the bones. Laid the decking, put a rubber sealer on. Laid the cement board and then installed the 6"x3' tiles. First used a outside grout. With a good sealer and had Efloresence come up through the grout lines. Went back and took that out and laid epoxy grout( had to really hustle to stay on top of that). Efloresence is still giving me crap a year later. Im at my wits end with this stuff. Any input on what I did wrong or how to fix it would be great. Done this before without a hitch.
