A word from the inventor, Joel Beaton

"Lets face it. Mixing mortars and grouts in buckets is the worst aspect of tile setting. We all know how bad the dust is to breath. Costly dustless mortars are available, but they don’t completely eliminate the dust. Save your lungs, try a WaleTale."
Questions & Answers
2 questions

What size hose will this fit?

The WaleTale fits on standard 2-1/4" shop vac hoses.

The WaleTale website says this comes with an adapter to use a smaller hose...does it in fact come with this adapter? We have all Bosch HEPA vacuums with smaller hoses.

These WaleTales will not include the small hose adapter.

Excellent for indoor mixing.

by Tile Pro

I recently did 28 bags of Tec Leveler mixed in the basement I was working in. Level dust is like talcum power. You pour it in the bucket and a huge mushroom cloud of dust spews out. Normally you would be crazy to mix this indoors but with the wale tale there was zero dust escape!! After mixing enough tile mortar to lay 1,400sf of wood plank porcelain in a finished based there was not a film of dust anywhere. Hook this up to your shop vac with the large hose, not medium hose, and it is amazing. After mixing 28 bags of leveler and about 25 bags of Pro-lite my vac had far less cement dust in it than I was expecting. I use ridgid vac with a blue filter plus the filter bags they sell separately. The bag really helps preventing the filter from getting clogged.

Between this whale tale product and the barwalt saw tent we were able to stay in the basement very rarely having to trek upstairs for the entire job.

Before this product needed to wear a dust mask when mixing Thinset. Simply attached to VAC and mount to side of bucket. Works Great!

WaleTale

It did require an adapter but was easy to use and satisfied our client for controlling dust while mixing grout.

For tiling backsplashes.bathrooms and kitchens

by Joe Hebert

Any contractor that has to mix thinset, grout, drywall mud or any other dry mix in a bucket should have this.
It keeps the dust away from you incredibly well.
One of the best purchases I have made yet this year.
