    Found a color for a job. Playing with the colors. This was the 3rd guess as to what they wanted.

    Picking the color is half the battle. Doing up a test swatch eliminates all kinds of headaches later.

    What's outside temp and exhaust options? I haven't heard of oil based epoxy. Some details of the space may help. Onboard Naval ships they ran very long lengths of visqueen ducting to overhaul flooring. Activated Carbon filters may work, not on every chemical though so that would need to be verified by manufacturer of epoxy.

    77F is good, you can open window on one side of house and run a blower out the window to create an exhaust through the window. My only concern is that the fumes could be ignitable through the blower. You could open the inlet window on other side of house, seal all around the blower and create positive pressure to push the air out through the bathroom window.

    Are you saying the bathroom is approximately 23 ft x 23 ft?

    This is a 12" 3000cubic ft per minute on high blower, works well, bought at Northern Tool, and another one at Global Industrial online.

    Just use a 100 percent epoxy with out the fillers
    And the only smell will be like wall paint.
    Yes it cost more but you get a better epoxy.

    Far from it! I don't like breathing all this stuff I use to breathe.

    It all stems from the military, chemical, biological decontamination. Even firefighting schools for desmoking, killing oxygen to fire.
    So Positive Pressure Ventilation is what the firefighters call it when they want to desmoke a space. I got this for dust and my ride on scraper, one of which is propane and will need carbon monoxide exhausted. 14,000 CFM.

    You can go over tile but it must be stuck and no lose tiles at all.
    You have to grind the tile in order for it to stick.
    Never use acid to prep a floor cause it changes the ph in the concrete. And you never get it off the floor.

    The only time we go over tile is when it's a trowel down job
    Of Quartz at a 3/8 thick that way it covers the grout joints
    If not all the grout lines show through

    I've fixed tons of floors from painters trying to be a flooring guy.
    It's cheaper to buy a 5.00 gallon of acid then a 10,000
    Floor grinder.

    A good way to check for loose tiles is bounce a golf ball off every tile, you'll hear the difference between good and bad. If your going to grind the tile you might as well get rid of the tile in my book.
