On the issue of std wallboard I am sure that many before me have had the jitters and wanted the insurance of cement board. Its all a question of membrane integrity. It boils down to what percentage leak from workmanship issues such as undetected slits/punctures, thinset voids at seams, etc. Obviously there are zero issues with perfect workmanship. Hell, the lunar lander was covered in tin foil and it got 12 men down and back. Is the leak potential really that minimal that sheetrock is a good bet?

Any more thoughts on thinset?
