A little off topic, but I used 2x12's on all the headers because we always banded the block to pour the slab, and when it was dry enough to pull the bands, we had +/- 200' of 2x12's that weren't...

Wedi can be bonded in that proposed manner, but hold on to your checkbook when you go to buy it.

I see that the OP says that his latest installer put screws through the bottom row of Hardibacker, but I read it that he did a mud curb.

I have one suggestion before you cut out a section of wall. See if you can get a scope that would require only a small hole to access the wall cavity.

I've never seen anything that will extend the drain up. I would call Schluter before trying anything, but I imagine you'd have to do some measure of demolition to the tile immediately around the...

Ok, I would not use Ditra as a waterproofing system in that application, even as a backup. You're going to waterproof that bench properly so you don't have to worry about it leaking.

Maybe you mentioned this earlier and I'm too thick to understand it. What is the purpose of putting Ditra under the bench, or anywhere in the shower?

If you're making your own, just use 1/2" board. You can frame around it if you want, to give it more support.

I've never made one of those, so I couldn't give you an exact amount.

Still, no way I'd use that in that application when there's so many other options.

All the white in the floor suggests that too much water was used in the mix, which is why I suggested using a level to check for slope.

Ain't no way that's waterproof. And the buildup at the drain is a big problem.

Not that it matters at this point, but I'd use a level around the floor and see what the slope is like.
