I noticed. Dry cut inside no less with no lung protection or safety glasses. Looks like agglomerate tile and I've heard the adhesives used in those can be pretty nasty.

As for ear plugs, I have...

Me too. Me neither.

If I were installing larger format tile I would buy one. It would pay for itself inna day if it was nearly as good as it looks on the video.

I haven't set large format tile or stone in years. When I did I had a wet "fat" mortar bed. Sometimes not so wet but what this guy is setting on looks awful dry to me and I don't consider that wet...

That's pretty much as far as I would compliment the guy's skills, other than he has a good eye. That in itself is worth complimenting. However the way he taps the buttered tile into dry walls and...

What is on the face of the spillway really shouldn't matter. Kinda. The water migration is causing all the efflorescence. Whether it's coming thru the shell or just falling back to the wall from the...

Pictures? What does the surface look like? I use sand and portland cement and bond it with a portland slurry. I use Anti-Hydro in the mortar and slurry.

I'm just not a fan of epoxy. I've seen it erode in pools in a relatively short span of time. It's color doesn't hold up in a lot of applications in my experience. I just don't see the benefit for it,...

How set are you on the height of the benchtop? You could add another piece of Durock on top with thinset, using more thinset in back to do the slope. Not by the book but it would work. You could even...

Is the tile on the inside also? The substrate needs to be waterproofed to stop water migration thru the shell.
The 254 will work for thinset, but big I'm not a fan of it because of the way it goes...
