Nick, if you did a good job of installing the tiles and if they've been installed more than a day, I think it highly unlikely that you'll remove any of them without damaging your waterproof membrane,...

Welcome, Sterling. :)

The muriatic (hydrochloric) acid will not harm only the stones, but your lungs and potentially all the metalic fixtures in the area. You really, really don't want that stuff...

C'mon, now, this is no time to be wishy-washy about the project. Was it zero fun or not zero fun. Approximations are for sissies. :D

1. You'll find a 1/2" square notched trowel recommended often for that size tile installation. If your floor is flat and your tiles are flat, you shouldn't need a notch that big, but, again, that's...

Welcome, Blake. :)

I would posit that your mud bed is a bit too tight if you can get water to pool around the drain with your having poured only a quart of water on it.

I've never done that two-step application method, Chris, but I've used the Mex Seal only on previously sealed floors, never as a pre-seal for new tiles.

Below the drain would be a problem, above the drain is not a functional problem and if it's not an aesthetic problem I'd leave it alone.
