I think you'll find it's waaaay more than half the water in poured concrete that is water of convenience, Ed. 'Specially the way far too many contractors pour it.

Welcome aboard, by the way.

If TCNA standard is part of the important ingridient , then the method shouldn't be used .
If Not , then is up to the installer,

I get the argument that is passing the compressive " test " comparing it with the foam pan , but still won't do it . Sends the wrong message , IMO.

Everything that has pure cement as ingridient will harden if water is added to it , regardless of the method used -- sprinkled , mixed , etc.--

Where does the TCNA Handbook specify how a mortar bed is mixed/hydrated? I'm not saying it doesn't; it's not the magazine it was when I started and I could have missed it

It's in ANSI A108.1A, "2.2 Mortar for floors," Nate.
