I would assume that 9-inch tile with black adhesive contains asbestos unless proven that it doesn't.

These are always tricky situations. A slab floor that is that big will not be flat enough to...

Can you shove the tub all the way over to the window wall on the right? If so, you might have a fighting chance at getting that wall to flush out with the drywall.

For the other two walls, at...

I agree with John. Sanded is the way to go. The unsanded will shrink up badly.

The reason that the lower half has more wear is because that's what gets most of the water. But it could be that...

Schluter's modified mortars are different than everyone else's because they're "specifically designed" for their products. ;)

Kevin, perhaps you need a refill on your orange Koolaid? :D

That's a good point about them heating up at two different rates. The other thing is that a wire/uncoupling system is usually preferred for the floors these days but inside the mud bed of the shower...

The best trick I've found for Flexcolor CQ and Fusion Pro grout is to use a micro fiber cloth and use that for the final wash.

What I do is work out of two buckets. The sponge is in one bucket and...

Does water sit in the pan anywhere and not drain?

If you spray a mild cleaner on the dark spots does it come off?

Yes, Flexcolor is non-cementitious and is similar to Fusion which you've already mentioned that you are familiar with.

I think it should be fixed prior to tiling. However, you don't want to fix it with the 4:1. I'm thinking something like Ardex Feather Finish might be your best bet in that scenario but I don't...

I'm not sure what the options are as far as going over the tile. The fiberglass surrounds usually come in 3 or 4 piece sets but those might go over backerboard.

Reparing the grout will help but won't fix the problem. You'll have to...
