Tile/Grout and a bad back

I recently injuried my back and I'm about half way done with a tile job.  Can anyone recommend something that helps with the heavy hauling while finishing up the grout?

Hi there FishSlayer and welcome to the community!


I'm sorry to hear about your back injury.

The first thing that came to my mind reading your question is that grout job can always wait until your back heals and gets better. Working with injured back can possibly make a situation even worse that it is right now.

As long as tile it’s clean and grout lines are free of thinsest grout job can wait with no problems.


If you are set on doing this job right now regardless of the situation I would think that a small  flat cart would make things easier for  somebody who is trying to limit lifting and hauling.


You can set up your flat cart in the room you are working on with buckets of water, tools and grout. You can move the cart from room to room and even possibly take to your vehicle to unload tools and materials.

Also some of the grout clean can be done  standing with a sponge mop instead of traditional grout sponge.

Hope this helps.
