1) I'll definitely try Magic Eraser - good idea. May even try that for some of the haze on the tile.

2) I'm not sure about the grout, but there's a significant amount. Is there anything that can...

Thanks everyone.

We are leaving on holidays in 8 days. Should I wait before grouting until we come back (about 16 days in between) or will that make no difference in allowing the modified thinset...

How would i know if there was a problem with the unmodified underneath Ditra? At what point would I discover it?

How soon do you grout your time installation when you use modified on top of Ditra?

Thanks CX.

This is a different installer than in March. Similar washroom, though.

I hired someone, after a recommendation from someone, but it appears they were all about expediency and not...

Ditra and modified thinset

Good afternoon
Just had a tile company do my tub surround and washroom floor. They used unmodified thinset (kerabond T) to bond the Ditra to the plywood and a modified (Ultralite) to bond the tile...

Thanks for your help everyone. I've let him grout it - this is a flip, so I'm probably less concerned then I'd be if it was my own place, but at the same time, I'd really prefer to provide superior...

Also - is there anything I can do to ensure a tile breaks? i.e. step on a corner of a tile?

A forced test, I guess?

But if the tile itself has 80% coverage, but the space below it (the cavities) is unfilled, it's going to fail, no?

This is a wet area (washroom) and I told him to use the kerdi band.

How...

I provided all the material for him - so he used Flexbond underneath the Ditra and Mapei Kerabond T above it.

Is there any chance this will succeed?
