Thanks Harry and CX.

Now, for a little twist, how would you treat the joint at a bathtub in doing a surround with either Wedi...

That's true. John said "might wick water". So, that's my reason for putting it behind the Wedi.

Your concern was the Kerdi would not be high enough behind the Wedi to be technically called a pan....

3' x 6' shower - larger footprint - I want a warm floor - it's MY shower.

cx,

I've used 1/4" Wedi on the floor for many years with excellent results.

I've also completed one shower and a couple of tub surrounds with Kerdi.

The Kerdi was OK, but I think that the...

I want to do a shower with a heated floor. I will need to put a waterproofing membrane over the heated...

Bastian,

I have used the 1/4" numerous times, and so far, only on the floor. I have installed 12" x 12" ceramic tile, and 24" x 24" limestone. So far the installations have held up well. Just one...

Anyone happen to see the thread about exchanging carpenter pencils over at Taunton?

Just wanted to see if anyone here would be interested in doing this.

Maybe it's so new that they haven't got it shipped everywhere yet. We are fairly close to the home office in Michigan. Don't know if that explains it or not.

I used the Fluidmaster one once. Now...

Another option you could try. If you have an old router, you could fabricate a pattern from plywood to use as a guide to smooth out the curves with a carbide bit after you have rough cut them. I used...

It slips inside the pipe, a couple of flaps seal between it and the pipe. I don't think it restricts any more than a plastic horn on a wax ring does. I tried to find it on the Fernco web site, but it...

I tried one of those saws to cut 24" x 24" x 1/2" limestone. Problem was that it would not cut a straight line. I just had to break down and get a real saw.
