I've never set tiles that tiny but I'd can definitely see how they will conform to all surface irregularities.

If the dips in your self leveler are only 1/16th you can fill them with thinset...

That's right, Chris. To test the pan and drain assembly correctly you need an inflatable plug for the side of your drain riser. Big box stores will have them, about 20 bucks. You insert it down far...

<5/8th ain't much. I'd rather compromise with an all plastic flange that has a longer reach onto the riser. If you can get to it from underneath you could replace it with a longer riser. Or, use an...

Due to surface tension the quartz pieces for the niche shelf and curb top would have to be pitched a surprising amount so that all the water sheds off of them, so I wouldn't consider "some" remaining...

The disadvantage is there is nothing to old the bottom of the cement board tight to the studs since you cannot nail or screw it to the studs that low.

Install the CB panels so they end 1/4" or so...

The 5/16th is what you want for those tiles, Brad.

The thing I'd be worried about is how the matte black finish holds up to being grouted. You might need an unsanded grout.

While there are membranes that are installed using thinset mortar, Ryan, that blue rubber stuff isn't one of them.

As said, if the curb was constructed the same way you're likely to find similar...

Welcome back, Chris,

Not much you can do, will just have to wait it out. As you've likely guessed there's a good possibility that it's going to leak again. Just deal with it when it does, maybe...

Sounds like a plan, Brad.

Don't know how the Neodrain integrates with the water proofing but I suspect you've already looked into that.

Main thing that put me off with the Toto carrier is the...

Nothing you can do about that plywood joint and joist along the wall. You already understand the reasoning to avoid the alignment of CBU and plywood seams so do the best you can.

You will want to...

I, too, would look into a foam pan, I think you'd have a devil of a time cutting joists that have already been sistered, never mind getting those cuts reasonably accurate.

Consider recessing the...

Probably not, Bert.

When the bottom row of wall tile is pulled it's more than likely that the AD is going to tear, come off, or otherwise be compromised. If the AD is compromised along the line...

I believe 2' below grade is code here, cx, for electric/water/NG/sewer, and except for water the 2' rule is for physical protection.

You're right, of course, even 2' down may not save them from a...

I dunno, Wolfgang, I'd not be comfortable with a major utility only a foot deep. I'd have to ditch-witch it to at least 2'.

You could certainly do it that way, Patric, I'd want to use the longest level possible.

But I think a self-leveling laser would be a perfect application for what you're trying to do.

I'd probably give the silicone 24 hours to cure, but the directions on the side of the tube might say something to the contrary.
