Hi everyone, I'm doing the 24h leak test now, and watching it like a hawk. It's been in there about 2 hours now, and the line hasn't noticeably changed. However, I do notice wicking up the walls,...

Steve, that's cx's signature and shows up on all of his posts as a disclaimer. Nonetheless, it's probably some of the best advice you'll get on the internet.

I can't remember the link now, but that video has been debunked by someone that applied the kerdi properly in a cardboard box, and it lasted over 50 days without leaks. I recall that particular guy...

Hi Jason, I recently stretched my 1/2" pipe seal over a 1/2" brass. It was extremely tight and is going to make it virtually impossible to remove later without damaging something. You might want to...

Finished the mud bed. Was kind of fun in the end. Got about a 3/8"/ft pitch to longest point. Finished the day by misting it and covering with plastic.

I called Mapei and the response was that "they're really the same thing. The Plus is just geared towards Lowes". So I have no idea why there are two products (and in fact, Lowes carries both), but...

Thanks cx, I'll give them a call tomorrow. The main reason I was asking is because my local big box only has the plus in the particular color that I'm looking for. And oddly enough, the plus is less...

Hi everyone, I didn't know if I should make a new topic about this since it's a good searchable topic that others googling might want to know. I've settled on using Flexcolor CQ in the shower, and I...

Hi Phil, I *only* put in the corner piece on top of the curb. I did not put in the bottom curb corner piece yet, because as you said, that goes in after the mud bed/membrane is down.

Hi Phil, no I haven't used any kerdi fix anywhere yet. Luckily this tile is right at the edge of a pony wall that is still exposed, so I can also chisel out from behind the tile fairly easily on the...
