Welcome back, Chris. :)

Have you got a picture of the back of the tile, maybe at an angle so we can get an idea of what you're dealing with?

How uneven is the back of the tile? Are the...

You'll have a decent amount of water splash out, so it's just a matter of what you want to tolerate. You can see how it works and address it later as needed.

Welcome to the forum, Ray. :)

That's where I would start the slope if it were mine. Right where it starts into the shower.

I reckon the shower membrane is no more. I tried to order some last night online and can't find it anywhere. Several sites still have it listed, but as "unavailable" or "out of stock".

No vinegar, and DEFINITELY NO muratic acid. The fumes alone from acid can burn your lungs, and cause lots of other problems.

The flour, never heard of that before. I use a scraper when it works,...

The bond between floor and Ditra is important. If you have glue residue, that needs to be removed. Anything that could interfere with the bond would be a problem.

If you make it loose enough to flow through a bag, you'll likely have some slump.

We always used a tuck pointer for this job. It's just a handle with a narrow piece of metal about 8-10" long,...

That's some interesting work around the bottom of the chimney there. No leaks, I presume?

Use a plastic putty knife to remove anything stuck to the surface. If you have a scrap piece, experiment first before trying it on the floor.

That's going to be a tough and tedious job.

Use a punch to break the tile into smaller pieces to facilitate easier removal. Notice I didn't say "easy removal", just easier.

You wouldn't want to use anything behind the GoBoard that might trap water.

You could use something like Kerdi band, and there are a number of other membranes like Kerdi that would work. You just...

Welcome to the forum, Kenny. :)

You can run your GoBoard right down on top of the flange. But you'll need to connect them in a manner that doesn't allow water to penetrate between the two.

It would take a good amount of water to soak through the bottom plate and out those weep holes. It's possible, I guess. :shrug:

How would you tie the waterproofing on top of the bench to the waterproofing on the front of the bench?

If you've already got the liner in, then the next step would be the backer board. Hardibacker would not be my first choice for that application, since it can't be buried...

Setting tile won't be too bad. But if you've got the perimeter level, the liner will tend to wrinkle a little.

You might try spreading the liner out in the sun for a little bit to soften it up...
