Yeah, you're very much not the first to question it, John, and surely won't be the last. It is worth noting, however, that All Set is a modified thinset mortar....

Welcome back, Dan,

Does appear that the wall tile is absorbing moisture. To my eye there appears to be a low spot on the floor, is water pooling there?

The bucket test is not indicative of how the mortar is curing under the tile but I'd still be inclined to give it at least 2 days.

You're assessment of the top of the pony wall is correct, Steve, as there would be no other way to build it so that both sections slope to drain. Then, too, the quartz would need to be 45'd so both...

Because the bench top is sloped your wall tiles will have to be cut to match that slope. IOW, you can't simply cut the wall tile straight because the gap between the two will get wider. You'd end up...

Hi Steve,

Yes, the curb and the top of the pony wall should be sloped towards the drain. Using thinset mortar to create the slope under the tile isn't acceptable; remember that tile and grout are...

Jean, I would suggest that you first spend some time screwing down all that plywood, using 2" construction screws into the joists, if you've not done so already. Then re-asses the subfloor.

Instead of 3/4" T&G OSB, with 3/8" ply on top you might consider 5/8" T&G OSB/ply with 1/2" ply on top.

3/8" ply isn't so great. The sheets typically are not very flat right off the rack, making...

Yeah, 3/4" is a bit much for a thinset mortar, quite a bit much.

Looks like something like this would do the trick though....

IMO, I think 3/4" overhang for the curb might a little much, especially on the shower side. It'll be difficult to clean it. Indeed, since the overhang will be so close to the shower floor, it'll be...

How thick is the quartz, Cliff?

While they will want to drill into the quartz to install the brackets, they don't need to drill all the way through it. If the quartz is, say 1" thick they could...

I'd use thinset to adhere the cement board to the drywall, Jason, but since you are going to cover it with RG construction adhesive should also work.

Not that it matters at this point, but I'm curious if the installer pre-filled the Ditra heat with mortar and let it cure before installing the PR's.

No such recommendation that I've read anywhere here, Phil, but perhaps the manufacturer of your stone has instructions.
