Hi Jonathan, :)

Loose the 10# sledge. They only use those on TV. :)

I would first go over the entire mud bed with a shop vac. That'll tell you whether it's repairable. Show us another picture...

Welcome back, Schluter Dan. You're faster than a speeding bullet. When I first met you you were with Florida Tile. That was a while back.

I see Gobis is all over himself giving you a welcome. :D

Hi Kate, :)

If the too thick pieces are not too big, they could be sawn off on the back. I'm not sure what the precise problem is here.

Hi Jonathan, ;)

Sounds like a plan. Just make sure you have full coverage with the mortar, and press the panel down all over.

There are several "proper" ways to do a tile shower, none of which leak. None of us would be in business long if that were the case. :)

Hi Angie, ;)

If it's an unglazed tile it can be stripped and refinished with an acrylic, That might work if the glaze is worn off, too.

Hi Nick, :)

I think a shower pan replacement is the only fix available.

I came back to inquire whether the leak is on the shower head wall, in which case it could be a plumbing leak in the wall.

Well, if they don't want to spend the money to do proper job I'd move along. :)

Deck mud is cheap as compared to other products. I would never consider SLC for something like that.

You'll be splitting the tiles near the drain if you have 1/4 in. per foot or better. Seems you'll be making the room rain proof. Have you considered floating the floor flat and doing away...

I don't bother with the shower arm seal. There is very little pressure there. In all my years of tearing out showers I don't recall ever seeing any evidence of a leak there.
