It won't hurt to try. Keep in mind that just spraying it on and wiping it off won't do much. I usually spray it on, let it dwell about 10 minutes, scrub it with a brush and then wipe it up with clean...

What type of waterproofing/pan liner did you use on the shower floor? Is it on top of the mudbed?

George, you can use a paint on membrane as a pan liner and install your mud bed over it using the drain you have. I agree that since you have a curved curb, the paint on membrane would be easier....

Most of us have seen tiles crack directly over CBU joints, mostly on floors but occasionally on walls too. With the 3701 bonded to the substrate without lath, I wonder if the mud and tile would crack...

It's a risky install in my opinion, I'll let the others hang mud without lath. And at 25 bucks a bag, I don't see the savings.
