Jim,

what video are you watching ?

the one you posted has a guy installing a seat with white thinset on Hardi
with what looks like a liquid membrane thinly applied on the Hardi. then he
sets 2 tile above the seat with the same white thinset.

only thing I seen wrong is he spelled Mastic wrong

Jim,

everything your pointing out is on assumption.
we dont know jack crap how hes doing anything.
there's a few progress pictures missing.

Quote:
notice the lack of drain..
I see a drain...picture 12

Quote:
nails in curb
if he painted the other job with a liquid maybe he paints the walls in this job and
the curb with a membrane ?
obviously we cant tell what happened between pic 9 & 12

Quote:
and is it me but did he forget to use a trap under the drain?
maybe its in another area under the plywood.

What about this one.. http://www.tilemasterga.com/slideshows/atlantapro.html

Clearly shows no preslope, Cbu nailed onto curb thru liner..Drywall on jacuzzi....and unopened mastic buckets all over the place


more drywall.. http://www.tilemasterga.com/slidesho...ville%201.html

His work looks pretty good actually..he just needs to brush up on proper prep work a little

Is he a buddy of yours Brian? We have all seen it many times before..no-preslope,mastic over greenboard(maybe or maybe not),,cbu nailed thru curb. Those curbs should be blue with lath on them at that stage..not grey with nailholes

here is my newbie question,

in the first video, the shower seat in the corner, how will that support the weight of a grown man?
am I missing something? sorry but had to ask as I am going to put a seat in my shower to but going to use a cinder block and a half . for the bench so it will withstand any weight.

It will support the weight, The seat will not move..The seat will break in half before it falls. Somem marbles are soft and might need (rodded)..your fab shop would be able to advise you on that..they also would have the best selection of leftover sink cutouts etc..to use for seats and be able to polish the edge for you

He did the seat right..a little sloppy but it works. If you have the correct hieght you can just set the seat on the last row of tile..and just place a spacer or two under it in the corner to get your slope..then scribe to it for the tile above it.

i use 1 piece of 3cm granite wedged in a corner, then tile over it, no waterproofing and sturdy enough for a 250lb. man...

I don't understand how he does his pans. It looks like he shims up the tile a 1/2". I can't imagine his mud only being a 1/2".
