I've been following this thread Mary Jane and readin' it everyday! Great job and congratulations! One of these days, I'll have enough time to hang the Durock in our shower and set some tile. Until then, I'm trying to get other things finished around the house. I just wanted to tell you that our Flextherm floor heat system works GREAT! It really warms up the floor nicely and adds warmth to the entire room as well. I'm hoping it will warm the master bath up nice enough to make it comfortable once we start taking showers in our new shower because the shower is very open with no doors or curtains.

Congratulations again!

How deep is the puddle? Can you remove those tiles and raise them just enough to make that area drain?

The puddle is 6 to 8 inches across and 1/4 inch at deepest spot. Remove tiles?

If you raise those tiles, will it drain? Can you check with a short level?

It's only about 1/8" deep. I put a level on it but can't decide whether or not raising those tiles will create another problem and I don't know how far to go removing tiles...I need to study this for a while...

Mary Jane,

You need to go as far as the point where the rest of the floor is a bit higher than the edge of the drain. Study away.

Okay, so I took a month off to see what life was like standing up. Tonight I'm back on my knees putting cbu on the floor. In that month I built myself a computer and bought three donkeys. Most fun I've had in a year...Hope everyone's been well and working hard...

Bought three donkeys?

Couldn't you just take the beatin'?



More important question: Did you ever fix the bird bath in the shower floor?

That's right, you could have worked that soreness out. I'm sounding like a grandpa.

I got the bathroom floor done just before Christmas. All that's left in there are the backsplashes. Oh, and the birdbath...
