You can use a modified over Ditra and uphold the Schluter warranty, but it must be Schluter All Set Thinset Mortar. All Set is also approved for your larger format tiles per Schluter.

I don’t think the diverter would cause it to leak in the pan. Your comment about leaking where the floor meets the wall made me think it was outside the shower for some reason. I now understand it’s...

I think you may have mentioned you tiled before, but if not don’t beat yourself up on getting in on the tile. LifeProof is so abrasive, you literally have to scrub every time you get a drop on it....

Tom - not knocking your ingenuity at all. It’s a great idea. I only pointed out the difference because I found it curious. You would naturally assume the pans are made from Kerdi board.

Just as an FYI, most T&G have that 1/8” gap you see built into the tongue. It’s so contractors can only slide them together so far and already have the gap required. No need to add more to the gap,...

I would definitely rent or buy a tile wet saw. It will make all the cuts much easier. Honestly there isn’t much you can’t do with a tile saw, you won’t need a snapper or grinder.
