The crack could be from the drypack (concrete stuff) not being thick enough. It could also be that there is too much movement in the wood underneath- maybe from previous damage.

But the crack is a...

This is what I see. It looks like there's 1/2 inch something on the top. I know that doesn't prove that all four sides are wrapped in backer board but I'm not sure we should be automatically...

I think Prova board has a foam core similar to Wedi and others. If so, I think you're fine.

edit: I just reread the original post. I see Kerdi and Prova board. I guess I don't understand what...

I've done it before too. On one, this gal ordered an 800 lb vanity that sat on 6 legs. I was worried when the movers came to move it upstairs into the bathroom but everything went well. I still get...

I don't know anything about USG shower pans but I have used the Wedi Ligno before so I'm using that as an example. But other brands may work.

But if you ordered a...

For what it's worth, I would scrap the TS and purchase their ValueSeal. TS is a great product but is overkill for your application. ValueSeal is more of a Kerdi competitor. It's thinner and easier...

Nathan, the problem isn't the Kerdi membrane- it's the drywall. You can still use Kerdi, if you want, but over cement board- not drywall.

Specifically, the problem with drywall is embedding it...

That looks like moisture from the thinset coming up through the tiles which is normal and should go away after a while. If you have some sort of membrane underneath, like Ditra, then the only way for...

I do the same thing. With membranes, I will often write how much I've used so far so I have an idea of what's left.

If you are installing the tray and curb over a wood subfloor, as opposed to concrete, you'll need a modified mortar that meets A118.11. Adding an acrylic additive can turn your Kerabond into an...

Adding to Kevin's comment, the Tuscan Seam Clip is a pretty good one-off leveling system as there is no tool required and no additional wedges or clamps to buy either. I don't know how well it works...

The claim really isn't apples-to-apples though. With CI membranes, you can do a partial coverage installation where you just cover the crack. If this is the case, then you have to put the soft joints...

They're similar and competitive products. I prefer ValueSeal as they encourage modified mortars and sealant on seams (although thinset seams are OK also). Personally, I like the way it seams and...

Uncoupling vs Crack Isolation Membranes

I find the video below frustrating. Apparently, if I have a crack in concrete the non-A118.12 membrane is the preferred way of handling it? :shrug:

I'm not an expert on water damage but if it's solid, but just wet, then I think you can dry it out, have any mold treated and coat over it with a primer.
