Welcome, Avery. :)

If you're safely above the "barrier and pre-slope," you're also not down where you need to be to clean the weeps.

The top mud bed is required by industry standards to be at...

3. No.
4. Yes.
5. TCNA is recommending you follow at least...

That would be a maybe, Robert. Lou's recommendation in post #18 would be a safer choice.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Always mix more deck mud than your calculations call for, Jerry. Throw away any leftovers. Mud's dirt cheap.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Aside from the manufacturer of the Ditra not recommending the use of the product over dimension wood, I see no advantage to trying to use it in your application.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Jon, all the advice above still holds. If you're unable or unwilling to create a properly sloped waterproof membrane on that sill area, anything you do is just a temporary measure.

I suppose you could, but I think I'd look to raising the vanity or the top a quarter-inch. Look more like you planned ahead, eh? :)
