Welcome, Dave. :)

In what regard, Lenny?

Keep in mind that there is no tile industry standard at all. The TCNA Handbook has recently (I don't recall the year) added a note under Materials that the membrane must...

Greg, one thing that can help is that you notch your tiles across the 12" dimension. Makes it easier for air to be forced out when you move your tiles to flatten the notches.

And please put a geographic location in your User Profile so we can tell if you're in the People's Republic of Austin, Texas, where fiberglass rules for shower receptors.
