Scott, can you link to those posts? From what I recall the CQ thread had generally happy people that used it on walls and floors. I don't remember reading anything about pooling.

Dan, I'm confused on your #2. It sounds like it makes sense, but elsewhere people say to caulk the floor to wall transition: https://www.johnbridge.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=11223

Fred, back to your original question: it sounds like you said the total drop over 4.5' is 0.5", not that it drops 0.5" per foot. Is that right? If that's the case it's way off and patching it won't...

Ode, I just did my first mud bed after cx suggested it, and it was not bad at all. I used about 9 50lb bags of mud, and mixing it myself was fairly easy to do as long as you're prepared. The Sal...

Hi Joel, it's still a bit hard to see in that photo, but at first glance it looks like a lot of thinset is on each seam. I'm not able to see the band or corner pieces at all. What's the big circle...

It's 3/4" thick. I called about 15 total places last night and I did find one that said they don't have to drill into the curb. I'll keep you updated!

Steve, that's cx's signature and shows up on all of his posts as a disclaimer. Nonetheless, it's probably some of the best advice you'll get on the internet.

Hi Jason, I recently stretched my 1/2" pipe seal over a 1/2" brass. It was extremely tight and is going to make it virtually impossible to remove later without damaging something. You might want to...

Finished the mud bed. Was kind of fun in the end. Got about a 3/8"/ft pitch to longest point. Finished the day by misting it and covering with plastic.

Hi Phil, I *only* put in the corner piece on top of the curb. I did not put in the bottom curb corner piece yet, because as you said, that goes in after the mud bed/membrane is down.
