Scrap the Tile Ready base and just go out and get a high quality acrylic base if you are looking for a 10 year maintenance free product. There was a reason someone just gave it to you!!

They package it in .5 gallon, 1 gallon, and 2 gallon units. I don't think they have access to the 2 gallon units. You might be seeing pricing for the .5 and 1 gallon units.

There are so many porcelain tile look-alike's out there to choose from. Slate is a no-go in a wet environment. And don't try the customer waiver of responsibility to you. They don't hold up in court.
