Thanks man. Plumbers are coming to get started today. Once all that is done, I can move forward on the tub surround (assuming we can finally decide on some tile). Hope to have some updates (along with questions I am sure) soon.

So, I just had an interesting conversation with the plumber. He was asking me what I was going to put around the tub on the walls and if it would be Hardi. I explained that I was either going to use drywall and kerdi or another substrate with redguard, but I did not plan to use Hardi. He wasn't sure what I was talking about and said that people never use drywall in bath/shower areas. I explained again what kerdi was, and he asked me if it was that orange stuff. He went on to say the he had heard of it and tile guys he new didn't like it and regardless, if I wanted the tile surround to last I would want to use hardi and definitely not drywall.

My thought was, maybe you should just stick to plumbing...

He's correct in recommending you not use drywall in a wet area, Jason, except for Kerdi. The Kerdi manufacturer has obtained an ICC Evaluation Report saying that the "Kerdi System" can be used over drywall in that application and can be accepted by local code compliance jurisdictions.

No idea why tile guys known to him "didn't like it," and that certainly has no bearing upon its usability.

Did you ask him what they did like for waterproofing a tub surround?

My opinion; worth price charged.

No, I completely understand only using drywall with Kerdi. That's what I was trying to explain to him. His only comment was that I should use Hardi. He did not really have much to say beyond that. I wasn't too sure if he was trying to say using Hardi over plastic, or a water proof membrane over the Hardi, or what, but I did not really ask him to elaborate.

He sort of scoffed at the idea that Kerdi was waterproof and could be safely used over drywall, so that sort of ended the conversation for me.

I still meet an occasional person who scoffs at the idea of a car or truck with fuel injection. Having lived with carburetors for decades, I was pleasantly surprised with my first fuel injected car 25 years ago. Since then I've had 6 fuel injected cars and trucks and never had an issue with the fuel injection (which is far more than I can say about carburetors).

I've gathered people tend to not like things they are ignorant of.
