Welcome to the forum, Kyle. :)

Sorry for the trouble you're having. Would you be able to set a new, undamaged tile on the floor and take a picture so we can have a side-by-side comparison?

I'm no expert on moisture control, but it sounds like it needs Durock, Kerdi, and tile to the underside of the joists.

Are they up for that? :D

I usually just backroll the membrane beforehand so it'll lay down on it's own.

But at this point it looks like you may have to redo part of it anyway, so weigh it down this time.

I think you'll be okay with that. I think they recommend a 1/4" trowel to bed the tray.

Both of those things can't be entirely true. Are you saying the floor dips in the middle toward the drain? If so, it's sloped toward the drain already?

Instead of trying to slope the floor to guard against a potential flood, I'd rather get a plastic tray for the washer and dryer to sit in.

Setting your washer on a sloped floor is an invitation...

Sandy, I sent a private message to someone here that can probably answer your questions (or at least fake it through an naswer better than I can. :) ).

I think that's where he thought the contradiction was. It means less water than brick mortar, but more than deck mud.

If you can knock on it like you were knocking on a door and nothing comes loose, it should be fine. That's the only way I can think of to check it.

Typically the mud for curbs is a bit wetter than deck mud. If what you have up is solid and not flaking off, then don't worry about it, it'll probably be fine.

The size of the tiles doesn't matter when addressing deflection. If your joists are in good shape, they should be more than enough at a 12' span. What do you have for subfloor?

I don't think your Densshield Plus is a suitable substrate for Redgard. You'd be better off with a true cement board like Durock, Permabase, or Wonderboard.

If it is Densshield, you definitely have a problem, and not only with the materials. If your installer is putting the materials up backwards, you probably need a new installer.
