Welcome, Charles. :)

I've separated your project from the other visitor's years old thread to avoid confusion on both.

There may be some toilets that will allow you to get away with that, Matt, but I guarantee there are some that won't.

My opinion; worth price charged.

4. All manufacturers of CBU I'm aware of require a polymer modified thinset mortar for setting tiles.

Doesn't sound like your contractor did anything right on that floor, Patch.

Just looking at that small patch of clean plywood makes me wonder if you've got much of a bond between the plywood and your existing mortar, Dave. I think you should try to remove the mortar and see...

Patch, it looks to me like the installer let the mortar on the floor skin over before he set the tiles.

My opinion; worth price charged.

1. If your substrate if flat and your tiles are flat you shouldn't need a LHT mortar for your application. And I don't think you need anything as exotic as Ultraflex II,...

Welcome, Travis. :)

You can do that, but rather than "loading the trim plate up" with Kerdi Fix when you install it, I'd recommend you use a color-matched silicone caulking in the grout joints...

1. Yes.

2. For a traditional shower receptor, that should be adequate, but not ideal. The presence of a squeak would trouble me. That indicates movement. You don't want any movement.
