Hi. Two quick questions:
#1) We are about to build the shower pan for our new kerdi shower that is about 3.5 x 6 feet. Can you give me an idea on quantities of sand topping mix and sand we need to get?

#2) The kerdi walls are about 7' high with about 13 feet total width and the shower pan is about 3.5' x 6'; how much masterblend should we get for installing the kerdi?

Thanks tons - Mary Ann

Hi Mary Ann, :)

I would buy four bags of Sand Topping Mix and two bags of play sand.

One sack of Master Blend will do the Kerdi, but you will need more to set the tile with. I usually buy two bags per shower. :)

If you are going to be putting Kerdi over plywood (a bench maybe), you'll need a sack of Versa Bond, and if that's the case, I would just use Versa Bond for the entire Kerdi install.

Thanks John!

Wish us luck - this is the big weekend for the shower pan and the kerdi install.:eek:
