Nope.

When you're ready to install your membrane. And you could do that tomorrow, but several days would be better if you have time to wait.

My opinion; worth price charged.

More misting doesn't hurt. Excess water will eventually evaporate.

If it were only "misting" I might agree with Paul, but it's far more likely you'd be spraying water on the surface and that could actually hurt by washing some of the cement from the aggregate.

My opinion; worth price charged.

No more h2o. Should be done by now but you can leave it till the morning. When you were done did you slick the mud down with a flat steel trowel?

Better than nothing. Going over the top with a trowel will give the mud a slick surface and keep it from eroding so easily. A square edged trowel gets the edges and corners better than the rounded corner trowels.

i hope you used some type of frying pan to create a divot so the hydroban can be bonded to the flange

im already glad to have picked up some good tips here

what length trowel is commonly used?

i did cut 2x4's the length of the sides to pound down the edges with, using a large rubber mallet.

im off for a few days so i'll take the plastic off tomorrow and leave it a few days to cure

Your mud will cure much better if you leave the plastic sheet in place, Fred.

It is not necessary to beat your deck mud into submission, you need only pack it firmly.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Leave it alone.

For installing tile over a "cured" mud bed the ANSI standards favor a 10 day cure period, but 20 hours is still the minimum.

I believe your waterproofing membrane manufacturer requires 3 days, but please read and follow their instructions.

My opinion; worth price charged.
