How to transition an outside corner between tile and drywall
First time poster.
I am using kerdi-board and tile in the shower. One of the walls will come out past the glass doors and meet drywall at an outside corner. What materials should I use? Do I use an outside corner bead and/or a Schluter edge? Thinset or drywall mud at the corner?
Thanks for your help.

Many times we use a row of matching bullnose if there's one available. If not you can use a Schluter profile edge. Sometimes I use a double row of bullnose, one at the corner and another extending around the corner. I would make sure the corner is straight and plumb.

If you're not wrapping the tile around the corner, you should use a drywall corner bead there.

What size spacers for 4x10 subway tile?
What is the recommended spacer size for a shower using 4x10 subway tile?

Hi Tim. There are no rules but I use 1/8 wedges more than anything.

Welcome, Tim. :)

It'll help if you'll keep all your project questions on one thread so folks can see what you're working on and what's been previously asked and answered. A moderator can give it a more generic title any time you'd like to suggest one.

The ceramic tile industry calls for a minimum grout joint to be three times the difference in size between the largest and smallest tile of the same nominal size in your layout, Tim. Aside from that it's an aesthetic consideration.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Will do.

Remove shower drain from fiberglass base
I'm removing a Sterling fiberglass 3-piece wall surround with fiberglass base. The drain will need to be removed from the top. If I can't get the old drain out by unscrewing it, should I use an inside pipe cutter to remove it before I install the Schluter flange?

That's a possible option, Tim, but we don't know enough about what you have to give you a definite answer.

Depth of Moen Posi-Temp Plaster Ground
Another quick question for the group.
When installing a Moen Posi-Temp Valve with the plastic Plaster Ground, should my goal be to have the outside (larger circle) of the plaster guard flush with the finished tile wall? I plan to use a scrap piece of 3/4" plywood to simulate the depth of the 1/2" Kerdi Board, thinset and 3/8" subway tile. Or should I recess it just a bit behind where the finished wall will be?

There should be instructions with that water control valve telling you the proper installation position. In my experience it does generally want to have the plaster guard flush with the finished wall surface. But you want to check the instructions for your particular unit.

Not sure just how your simulation would work. Your plywood, at a max of 23/32nds" thick is gonna be substantially thinner than just your wallboard and tile thickness of 7/8ths" without any bonding mortar.

My opinion; worth price charged.

When in doubt, get the trim out and fasten it to the valve to see what it needs to be. Usually there is a maximum and minimum with some wiggle room.

Will do. Good idea, thanks!

Drain removal question
3 Attachment(s)
OK, so we got the drain unscrewed from the shower pan and the pan removed. Now there is a section that remains with a collar (of sorts) along with an piece of ABS that leads to the trap. We are not sure if this can be unscrewed or needs to be cut. Any of the pros here willing to give us a heads up before I take the photos to the plumbing supply store?

cx 07-12-2021 12:09 PM

Matters not, Tim. Either way you'll need to cut the riser pipe (vertical piece from trap to drain) to length in order to glue on your new drain.

My opinion; worth price charged.
