George, you're going to find it difficult to make a PVC liner fit to a curved curb. It's going to have to be cut every few inches to keep it from wrinkling up.

Maybe you can talk to your friend...

I've always had everything natural gas as much as possible. Stove, heater, water heater, fireplace, and even dryer. I figured when the power goes out, I've still got hot water and fireplace.

I'm not a big fan of the fernco connections, but if you set the connection in gravel to minimize the movement, I imagine it'll work.

So the Kerdi drain takes a 4 1/2" hole in the concrete to set. ...

What was the penny tile set with? Maybe, if you're lucky, it adhered as good as the grout. :D

There's really no way to tell until you start taking it up.

How big is the floor space?

If you find the drain to be cast iron, that's a very good reason to replace the riser and trap. It'll take some demolition of the slab around the drain, big enough to dig down and expose the trap to...

There's really no way to say if the crack will expand/or contract in the future. And if it does, there's no way to know if it would expand/contact beyond the limits of Redgard to preserve the tile. ...

Redgard is fine for that application, when properly applied. No need for any mesh on that crack, though.

Ok, so as long as the mortar under the drain and the deck mud were done at about the same time so they could bond to each other, that should be fine. You don't want one drying independently of the...

It's probably about 20 years old, best I can remember.

But if they wanted it to be less-than-perfect, they could have just looked at the grout cracking in the corners. :)

I'll bet the floor doesn't drain properly and/or there are corners sticking up everywhere.

Hopefully I'm wrong and it's a linear drain.
