That's correct, Kyle. Otherwise you'd start with full tile at the lowest point and gradually cut them as you work your way around the walls. It can be done, but I wouldn't do it because of how it...

So if it's 3x5, and the drain is 1.5 feet from one wall, and 2.5 from an adjacent wall, how is it not centered?

Maybe I'm picturing it wrong.

When the plumber tests your newly-installed gas lines in your house, he'll put 25-30 pounds on it to test for leaks. But the gas coming past the meter has only a few ounces of pressure.

So why...

I doubt a sealer would help.

My first guess would be that you used too much water when sponging everything off.

At this point I'd probably give it ten days and clean it with sulfamic acid...

Welcome back, Cory. :)

I wouldn't set those in place to dry even if that were possible. You might want to make minor adjustments along the way.

I think if I had to remove the metal parts of the drain for replacement, I'd make a square tube out of four pieces of 1x, just big enough to stand on end and cover the tile, but not the drain.

Looks like you'd have just 3-4 inches on the left side to cover, and it could terminate into the window frame/wall.

The right side might be different, I can't tell from the pictures. Maybe we're...

Any texture to them, or are they just smooth? I know you want to be able to clean it easily, but the more product you apply to facilitate cleaning, the more slippery it'll be, generally.

It's likely that the green board was put up there when all the sheetrock was installed in the rest of the house. Some builders just use green board as a standard in wet areas.

I'd like know why he thought it okay to remove your personal property as well. Sounds a bit shady.

Jon, if you want to use Kerdi, put it over plain white sheetrock and don't look back.

It's been done tens of thousands of times, and installed properly, works every time. :tup2:

That would be true if the ridges didn't collapse at all. But unless you've mixed the mortar extra-dry, the ridges will collapse. To what degree depends on the pressure exerted on the tile, and on...

Keep a bowl of water with a little Dawn dishwashing liquid in it. Dip your finger in it before tooling the silicone.

Keep some paper towels nearby to wipe your finger off after each pass.

The grout needs to be at least 2/3 of the depth of the grout joint. If it was just a couple of joints, I'd use a utility knife. If it was quite a few, it might be worth investing in a grout blade...
