Welcome back, Loyd. :)

Other than possibly the stone, what tile are you installing on the walls and door jamb?

With a 1/4" trowel, you could expect to have about 1/16 - 1/8" of mortar when the tile is set. You can add a little more if need be to make minor adjustments, but you can't really go any lower.

If you filled and sanded it, and it still cracked later, would you reuse it in the basement?

If so, what have you got to lose?

If possible, I would cut the drain out and stub up 2" PVC for the kerdi drain. Do you know what kind of plumbing you have?

I definitely would not plan to put a sheet membrane over that floor. If you want to use the kerdi drain adapter, you could do that and build up a mud bed over what you have.

Welcome to the forum, Bishoy. :)

The drain that you'll want to use with Kerdi has to be embedded in mud at the same time the mud is placed, so you can't really do that with an old mud bed. About...

Welcome to the forum, Aaron. :)

Any reason you don't want to make your bench out of lumber and sheetrock? It's not going to see any water anyway.

If moisture is migrating into the seams more than 1/4" or so, then that needs to be fixed. Otherwise, I'd leave it alone.

Have you got a picture of the corner that you think might be a problem?

Actually the weight of them was what I was thinking of. They don't cover much space, but they have some significant weight. That may be too much for a thin bed mortar.

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?

I'd be afraid of getting electrocuted with that much water. Maybe if you used a battery powered grinder?

In reality I can't see it being much different than a wet saw with a good water supply.

How many coats did you put on? Same number all over?

What is the substrate on the walls?
