Can you take a photo that is more zoomed out? I can't even tell what we're looking at.

Are you thinking the hole is in the marble itself? or is the hole in the prepwork underneath the marble?

You could just place some cross blocking in the subfloor in the spots where you feel that it is suspect.

One way that I've done it is to:

In regards to the original subfloor, how many spots does it flex in? Is on the seams, in particular?

It's hard to tell from the pic but it's critical that the flange doesn't protrude past the Hardibacker.

Next, even though it's flashed there is still a gap between the Hardibacker and the flange....

You can buy a waterproof foam backer board in 1/4 inch thickness and install it on a floor instead of cement board. It's more expensive but it sounds like that might be a suitable solution in this...

The Floor & Decor in my area has them (Rubi brand) but I don't see them on the main website.

Have you bought the tray yet? A 48x48 would probably work better but the mud works too.

Hitting it really lightly and quickly might work. Otherwise, the polishing pads may be easier to control.

I think they intend to build it up like a dry pack but why not just use drypack?

Cement board is the cheapest. It's not the lightest or the easiest to cut but that's what I use when tile is going over wood and is too small for uncoupling membranes.

Otherwise, Noble TS is a...

A 3-inch cut is hardly a sliver. It's 25% of a tile. Installing the tile the way that I've drawn makes it so the corner "flows through" and looks like full tile that bends, or folds, in the corner....

Yes, if you can fit backerrod in there then I would use it.

In general, you want the silicone to be wider than it is deep and you only want it to stick on the sides and not to the back.

Mesh tape and thinset the two inside corners and the seams and all the way around the niche. It ties it all together. Then waterproof. Caulking the corners isn't the right way of doing it.
