Hello, I'm getting ready to order and lay the Ditra XL.

Before I get the trowel, I wanted to double-check the V-notch size. I have not found anything on the Schluter installation instructions that talked about a different V-notch trowel size for the XL. So I am thinking I need the 1/4" x 3/16" or the 5/16 x 5/16. I am laying over plywood.

Any words of wisdom before I buy?

Thanks!

Use the same trowel for the XL as the regular Ditra. The fleece is the same....but you will need more morter on the XL. :crazy:

From the Ditra Handbook, page 24:

....a 1/4" x 3/16" V-notched trowel, 5/16" x 5/16" V-notched trowel, or the DITRA trowel, which features a 11/64" x 11/64" square-notched design

It's the same for Ditra and Ditra XL.
