(Floating?) snap together floor tiles, then grout? Huh?

Have you seen this relatively new add for this stuff on tv? They look like a cousin to those (relatively expensive)plastic absorbing tiles used at sporting facilities, that snap together like a jig saw puzzle. And then they say you just grout. Seriously? And the grout will not get cracks? How can that be?

They have been around for several years. They use a flexible grout.

Is this a post looking for help on a DIY project or just a way of creating some conversation and traffic?

Without a specific problem requiring a solution to a problem, the off topic area might be more appropriate.

Johnny,

I'm guessing he's talking about SnapStone. Been around for awhile....

Yeah Mark, I though it might be SnapStone as well but wasn't sure. I've seen that stuff before. It actually floats on a plastic interlocking grid with flexible grout. I really don't know much about its reliability so I can't comment. There have been some discussions on this forum on this in the past when Bud was here.

Yep, snapstone - ecman can get it at Menards

A buddy of mine runs the department at the west store near him and has reported no problems from any customer using the stuff

It's spendy but with less prep required, some of that cost is offset
