Hi everyone. I am going to be tiling in the basement bathroom, and want to put down heating wires. I have never used heating in tile before, and have never used slc. I've been reading through the threads, and while it seems everyone is in agreement that primer needs to be used first on the slab, I cant find out what primer to use. Is it a special type, or just the regular grey basement sealer? Another question I have is about lath. Do i have to use it in any area that there will not be heat wires, or is that just over plywood? Any help would be appreciated.
