A water dryer would be more appropriate.

Kidding aside, do realize that there are polished porcelain tiles that mimic marble pretty well. I’d look for that. These days, I will not install marble...

If you at all suspect your power cord or the in-line GFI, I’d suggest getting a $10 non-contact voltage tester. They resemble a pen with a light on the end. It lights up and beeps when it gets close...

Using a good grout float to spread the mortar into the waffles does a fairly good job of "squeegeeing" off a lot of the excess that would normally smear on top of the waffles. That's a good thing,...

I like AllSet. Mix it per directions and you'll like it, too. :tup2:

I like that you're allowing it to harden before walking back on the Ditra. Doing so while it's still wet moves it a little and...

Irrespective of brush wear, if a wire is severed, that would cause it to be dead. Do you have a picture of the brushes?

Sometimes you can slap the non-spinning tool with the power on and it's...

Hi, Ray.

For this batch of grout:1) What is the expiration date of this bag?
2) Was the bag newly opened by you, or was it previously opened?
3) How much water did you add?
4) Did you mix by...

Yes, I’ll mix up hot mud for the first two coats over the Durock (just like with my drywall). Then switch to the blue lid for the final coat.

What setting material were you planning to use to...

Welcome to the forum, Tom. :wave:

Yes.

But I’d highly suggest you take a hard look at how flat (or not) your wall is. With tiles that size, they like to teeter-totter, rather than lie in a...

Yeah, Mike, with their seat sticking out so far, that's way too much leverage for an anchor. I can see why they want it anchored to a stud.

If you've never seen or tried a wing-it, I'd recommend...
