I Want to Tile My Patio Table....?

I've done a couple, and have to agree with answer one...Use a high grade exterior/or marine plywood NOT OSB. I suggest then seal the entire piece with marine varnish. The tiling is not so different from a floor or walls, but again, I suggest an exterior grade mortar and grout. No matter the table is round or squared off, you can also tile the edges with your mosaic, using a strip of wire mesh attached to the edge, then mortar/tile/grout, if you choose to go that far. The shine after the fact can be achieved with a decent Epoxy clear coat. I assume your last sentence means the tiles are not already glazed? They certainly will be, after the fact. Steven Wolf

1. What is wrong with the patio around my pool?

This is called spalling of the concrete topping. The original concrete slab was not finished properly when it was installed and the surface of the original concrete also spalled off. Before the topping, which is currently spalling was installed, the surface looked like the rough surface you currently observe. The topping was more than likely applied to look perfect just prior to the house being put up for sale. The topping was either applied under the wrong conditions, with the wrong materials, the wrong procedures, wrong surface preparation or incompetent installers. Any or all of the previous could be and probably are the cause of the failure. Although you do not have extreme cold temperatures, a freeze combined with any of the faulty installation procedures will produce the results you are observing. The topping would appear to have been installed to look good at the time of sale with no consideration being given for durability. Did you get any inspections or guarantees when you purchased your house? If so you may want to pursue a claim. It is positive that the slab under the topping does not have any cracks or holes. This would suggest that a properly installed topping could be completed that would last. All the topping would have to be removed, the surface prepared properly, any specified / recommended bonding agents applied, the topping must be properly installed, finished and cured under the required weather conditions. This would be less expensive than a complete removal and replacement of the pool deck. There are many factors that would influence the costs of either way to correct this issue, only uninformed and partial qualified cost guesses could be provided.. The only way to get a realistic price, and include all the conditions, is to have a local pool and / or concrete contractor give you a written price. If surfaces of the pool are not spalling and the spalled surface materials are kept out of the pool there should not be any affect to the pool. Frequently the pool concrete and the deck concrete are installed by different companies. Which would help explain the original deck failure. The topping failure appears to be the result of a "half fast" repair to look good at the time of sale.

2. Which is better? More patio space or more yard space?

I do not think it makes that big of a difference. A nice patio space will make your yard look good. It will all depend on the buyer when you sell. If you are staying in the house for some time, do what you want so that you can enjoy it

3. laying slabs on top of concrete footpath and concrete patio area any advice ?

a rather vague question with not enough details, I take it you are laying concrete ontop of concrete. If so, make sure that you drill into the existing concrete, and epoxy rebar pieces into it vertically, then pour your new concrete, this will insure the two pieces will bond with one another. Also you should coat the existing concrete with a concrete adhesive/glue, further insuring a proper bond. This is what is required when making a "cold joint" meaning new concrete ontop of already cured concrete

4. Help please with selecting some patio flowers?

If the pot is large enough, why not try a cherry tomato plant?

5. What could have caused an electrical shock from a concrete patio?

Cement is not a good conductor so a live electrical charge from the cement is a near impossibility. But that does not rule out a static charge. If the humidity was right and enough friction from the wood to break some electrons free just might generate a static charge. But I have never heard of cement getting a static charge before but then again, I am not moving wood a lot on a cement pad

This Paper Briefly Introduces 7 Methods to Improve the Heat Dissipation Effect of LED Display Screen
LED display screen will generate heat during use, especially outdoor LED display screen has high requirements for use environment. When it exceeds 4000 CDs, they generate a lot of heat. In practical use, increasing the heat dissipation of LED electronic screen can not only effectively improve the heat dissipation efficiency of LED electronic screen, but also achieve energy-saving effect, help to increase the service life of LED electronic screen and ensure the performance of LED electronic screen. Shenzhen LED display manufacturer introduces 7 heat dissipation methods of LED display screen!7 ways to improve the heat dissipation effect of LED display screen:1. Fan heat dissipation, which is a general method to enhance heat dissipation through long-life and efficient fans inside the lamp shell. This method has low cost and good effect.2. The most common cooling method using aluminum fins - aluminum fins are used as part of the shell to increase the heat dissipation area.3. The thermal conductivity ceramic with high thermal integration and the heat dissipation of the lamp shell reduce the working temperature of the LED HD display chip. The difference between the expansion coefficient of the LED chip and the thermal conductivity and thermal expansion coefficient of the metal is very large, and the LED chip cannot be directly welded to prevent the LED display chip from being damaged by high temperature and low thermal stress.4. Heat transfer tube is used for cooling. The heat transfer tube technology is used to transfer the heat in the LED display chip to the heat dissipation pin plate of the shell.5. An economical and efficient heat dissipation enhancement method for manufacturing convective air by using aerodynamics and the shape of the same sheet.6. Surface radiation heat dissipation treatment: radiation heat dissipation treatment is carried out on the surface of the lampshade, which is easier to radiate heat dissipation coating. It is a method of radiating heat outward from the surface of the lampshade.7. Heat conductive plastic shell, which is filled with heat conductive materials when injected into the plastic shell, which increases the heat dissipation of the plastic shell.fqj
