Building up thinset on a wall?
 
Short question. Building up thinset on a wall to aleviate slight bumps in wall. Can it be done safely, and how much can you build up the tinset?

Yes it can be done. 1/4" is the maximum.

Bumps or Dips ?

1/4 maximum, thankyou. I said 1/4 or 3/8ths, but wasnt confident. I believe it was bumps too. Sorry for the late resposne, sometimes i post questions and then get carried away at work and forget to check back

Bumps will be tough, since you have to fill the entire wall to the same level. It may be easier to re-work the drywall to remove those.

Yeah, bumps need to be ground down. Valleys are a bit easier. On a job today where the wall had a valley of about 1/4 inch. Mixed up some Laticrete 317 and floated it....put a fan on it and re-did it later. I didn't "fix" it, but I helped it. Screeds and wall mud are the best choice....but this was what I had to work with, but you can't do more than 1/4" at a time.....
