View Full Version : cheap thinset

Is the cheap thinset ok to use to put down the hardi over the plywood subfloor? I think I paid about 5 bucks for a 50 pound bag. Should I get a little better quality or does it matter?


Note: I have the good stuff for laying the tile.

Its probably unmodified, and the current wisdom is that it will cure faster than modified if it is covered.

Short answer: Yes. Cheap is good.

Hi Bill,

Concur. Good under backer board. Otherwise of no use whatever. :)
