The "Prism" grout will not likely scratch the surface. I believe it uses glass pebbles or something like that that are more forgiving. I'll look for a link for you.

OK, while you may look at...

1/8" is the "break point" where either could be used. Sanded is usually more robust and most prefer it. I like the "Prism" grout from Home Depot. Would work well in your case.

Not difficult to remove what is there. The Schluter flange should sit 3/4" to 1" above the floor and, when finished, the flange is level with the mud. Now, the "slope" should rise at least 1/4" per...

I beg to differ. "Hollow" sounds are NOT good. Any gaps should be filled with thinset. He is correct in that "level" is far less important than "flat."

I'll address the Schluter drain adapter. If you currently have a standard PVC clamping drain, the adapter kit works quite well. Used it many times with no issues.

No idea why you have the "birdbaths." When I'm pulling mud, I generally use Mapai's 4 to 1 bagged mix. Works for me and no guessing at mixing ratios. If you have access, give it a go.

I don't really like those "Slide Across the Table saws." I could never get a good cut with them. Even a Moving Table, on the cheap side seems to do better. :bonk:
