I have a fountain and one of the big saucer things sets on a cinder
block. It is not very pretty. I would like to glue some small decorative
stones to the cinder block to make it look better. once the stones are
glued on and dry they will be in a damp enviornment.
What kind of glue should I use?
Thinset or mortar or construction adhesive, and then grout, if you want
to fill the gaps between the stones. If it is more than one cinder
block, fasten them together. Big-box should have something in the
SakCrete aisle that will work for all of it. Are you trying to make it
look like a stone column, or just decorate it? If the latter, you could
use a stiff mix of mortar or thinset to ice it like a cake, and just
press the stones into it once it sets up a couple of minutes.
Play with it- the supplies are cheap, and what have you got to lose?
Make sure to buy a pair of rubber gloves, though. Anything cement-based
is murder on the hands, and construction adhesive is a pain to scrub off.

PC-7 and PC-11 will work. First is dark grey, second white. I'd glue
soething else with them first to see if you like the color.
They have loads of uses, and if you keep them separate will keep for a
decade or more, so I'd buy the set of 2 4-oz tubes, instead of
soemthing smaller. Ace Hardware has them in that size. Home Depot
only in a much smaller size, for not much less.
I rented a room once and the kitchen drain was leaking plus the faucet
woudn't stop dripping. I applied PC-7 to the wet drain pipe, and kept
pushing it back up until it set, in about 5 minutes iirc, and it made
a waterproof patch, even while the water had been dripping!
