I've never used the product, Mike. Maybe it works that way, maybe it doesn't. But the way I read the TDS, the manufacturer seems to recommend against what he's doing. Up to you.

There are, or...

That's interesting, Phil. Is the foundation slab in that room lower than in the rest of the house?

I quite commonly dropped the shower area in the concrete SOG when building houses down here...

Welcome, Martin. :)

It's important to know whether your original subfloor was 1/2" or 5/8ths" plywood. The 5/8ths may have proper T&G edges, while the 1/2" does not, nor is the 1/2" suitable even...

In my experience, when a concrete floor in conditioned space gets visibly wet, it's and indication of a very high MVER or possibly even hydrostatic pressure from below.

Some guessing will be involved here, Craig.

It does appear that you used the RedGard as the waterproof liner in a traditional receptor construction. That is, you had a sloped mortar bed (maybe?),...

Bad tiling, no matter how bad, does not cause showers to leak, Joe. The tile in a properly constructed shower is nothing more than a decorative wear layer.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Is that porous for a granite, or porous for a stone in general, Goldstein? A material that might actually benefit from something like Bulletproof?

Well, let me be the first to admit I got absolutely no eye-dee what you have going on there.

Welcome, John. :)

For some clarity here, "thinset" is a method of setting tiles, not a material.

Can you be more specific about the product you used to bond the tiles? Brand name, make and...

What sort of "product" do you have in mind, Tom? You're thinking perhaps a penetrating sealer?

What are your expectations for such a product in that application?
