Surface tension will usually keep it all from running off and yours will run off slower than it should. I don't know if it's worth fixing.

Is this a tile curb?

Is it a new installation? If so,...

From left to right, it should be level. The pitch should be at least 1/8 inch, I usually shoot for 3/16. You probably have a little less than 1/8 if I had to guess.

I agree with Laz. I would put a halt to the work and call a meeting with the boss man. I'd leave the plumb lines in place and ask him if anything looks odd.

Get ready for him to tell you your...

Someone here might be able to help. Or you might try the Terry Love plumbing forum. I would probably try to contact the manufacturer and see what they have to say.

I would have put the BN inside the niche and let it overhang the wall tiles. The BN wouldn't be wide enough so small pieces would need to be installed behind them. I can't see an easy fix, maybe...

Hi Melissa, welcome. It's hard to tell what you need there. Is it the T shaped area? A little closer pic might be needed.

Sometimes we can trust the grout joints to give a little grip on floors but that's not the case with your large tiles. I don't know of anything that would work long term that you could add to the...

Hi Vova, welcome. Usually the easiest way to fix the problem is to lower the drain. The tiles around the drain would need to be removed and the drain screwed down so it's even with the tiles. If it's...

I agree with John, not sure what else it could be.

After a heavy rain, I'd open the fireplace doors and look inside with a flash light, especially on the left side. You might see moisture in the...

When sweeping, you're going to knock more granules loose. That's why I would vacuum it. Thinset mixed a little wetter than usual will help make the surface harder. But only a skim coat.

I'm with Cx, exactly what mix did you use?

I usually slick down the surface of my deck mud using a steel trowel. This gives the surface a hard crust. Without that, it's going to be a little sandy...

Like Justin said, it might keep the bonding thinset from coming thru the joints but the burned in thinset may want to come thru. If it doesn't then it sounds like a good idea.

I scratch all my showers and not only does it set up over night, The next day I'll usually spray the scratch coat with my garden sprayer to add moisture to it before adding my finish coat.

Like Cx says, Florida is known to have showers built without a waterproofing layer. Who knows, the moisture could be coming up from the ground if there's no pan liner.

Customs made a product named Semco back in the 90's, maybe the 80's too. It was an anti-fracture membrane made for interiors only. This was before Redgard.
