Welcome, Mike. :)

There's always some joist deflection to consider. Your engineered joist system should certainly have been designed to meet the required L/360, but that's not guaranteed. ...

How 'bout you tell us more specifically what plywood you used? If it's not an exterior glue plywood, you have long term concerns there.

I have no problem at all with your proposed floor repair, Randy, but keep in mind that you've gotta get it dead flat and level. Keep in mind also, that with cutting down those foam pieces you ensure...

I disagree with the manufacturer on that one. I trust you were using it to bed a bathtub designed to sit on the subfloor and be mooshed into a bed of mortar for support? Mooshed being a technical...

Yes, it would, but you said pre-slope, and no pre-slope is required when using the direct bonded waterproofing membranes. I see now that I misinterpreted your use of "pre-sloped." But the subfloor...

Welcome back, Randy. :)

1. Generally, it's acceptable to have patches in your subfloor so long as your patch covers a minimum of two joist bays and you have adequate fastening, especially at the...

Well, AP, I'm not at all qualified to diagnose your mental problems. :) But I can tell you that's not a good idea at all. I would also have told you the Sand Topping Mix was not a good product to...

Welcome, John. :)

Seems we're avoiding the actual question, which I understand to be based upon "if I bump the wall." While the tennis ball will work fine the aid in not bumping the wall, should...

Joe, we're not suggesting the plywood in lieu of the CBU, rather in addition to it. The plywood would be part of your structural subfloor; the CBU is your tile substrate. Different materials for...

I've never seen such instructions for the curb, either, Justin. Guess it's a way to "fasten" the liner to the curb area, but I've never though anything necessary other than the metal lath folded...

Who approves that, Justin?

Only adhesive I know of for PVC liners is Oatey's X15 (https://www.oatey.com/products/oatey-lovoc-x15-pvc-solvent--222110718). I'm sure there are other brands, but I'm...

Only thing that looks wrong to my eye is the thickness, Marc. Unlike the pre-slope, the top mortar bed is designed to be porous. Traditional shower receptors are a water-in, water-out design and...

Welcome, Marc. :)

We've known folks to place a pre-slope without the requisite metal lath and have the shower survive. Not the best idea, though.

I'm curious why you've placed your final...
