If doing a floating/laminate floor, make sure it is vinyl. Don’t get a “waterproof” wood engineered product. Pergo makes one they claim is waterproof, but still wood based. Leave an expansion gap...

Flexcolor CQ does state not to be used in submerged environments, so theoretically water locked behind could be the equivalent of that and cause failure. I would clean out the loose and regrout, CQ...

I am not sure it is cohesive, but Ditra is 1/8” thick. You could possible put that under pan. I would call Schluter and confirm though. Not sure if it would be allowed since the pan would be a...

Got it. If it was just the last 2’ to ceiling of shower/tub enclosure was gonna say you can go directly on drywall, no different than drywall above a surround. But doesn’t apply.

Is this just a tub and you are tiling shower walls? Or a fiberglass tub/shower and your tiling the last 2’ to the ceiling? What’s throwing me off is you said it is tile direct on drywall now.

I’ve used that exact blade on tile before to see if it worked with a Versacut. It does. If possible, have someone with a spray bottle keep it wet while you cut. It worked better for me that way than...

Since you have the floor joists exposed, you could recess the pan to sit directly on the floor joists, with solid backing between joists. This video shows how to do it with Schluter products.

You can use a modified over Ditra and uphold the Schluter warranty, but it must be Schluter All Set Thinset Mortar. All Set is also approved for your larger format tiles per Schluter.

I don’t think the diverter would cause it to leak in the pan. Your comment about leaking where the floor meets the wall made me think it was outside the shower for some reason. I now understand it’s...

I think you may have mentioned you tiled before, but if not don’t beat yourself up on getting in on the tile. LifeProof is so abrasive, you literally have to scrub every time you get a drop on it....
