Basically, any mortar that is rated for exterior use. You can find that information on the bag.

At HD, Versabond is a good product.

Any cracks or joints in the sidewalk?

My first question would be, under what temperature and humidity conditions did it dry for 40 hours?

What is the substrate on the walls?

You want the gap at all vertical surfaces with all materials, tile included. A color-matched caulk or silicone will work there. I use a T-moulding at doorways between dissimilar surfaces, but you...

I've heard that the excess tension gets built up in the cooling process. If the outside of the tile is cooled but the inside is still too hot, there's tension built up in the tile.

I know that...

I thought non-pressure would be for drains. But I wouldn't pressure test a drain line up to 180 lbs., Not even a quarter of that.

Really all the bracket is doing is holding the pipe against the wall. It doesn't get enough stress on it to amount to anything.

I'd get all the screws out, then use an angle grinder with a diamond cup wheel to get the glue off. It may come off well enough with a scraper, I can't tell from your pictures. That would be your...
