Davy....If you are using the recommended amount of water AND have a waterproof cleavage membrane in place...and Paul likes to use Greenskin going up the walls, I see little issue with this method. Of course, that is second level. On a slab, this is a non-issue.

Did this method today for my preslope, working on a cabin with water about 350 yards away so I opted to conserve. Hit it with mag float after 10 min from the last water application. VERY CHOICE!

Justin, regarding the mud: How’d it come out In comparison to a standard float? Actually save time and Effort? Slope maintained? Similar Porosity? what’d you use, prebagged or site mix?
I understand that a preslope is preslope (“just gotta be something that has somewhat of a slope not against gravity to a drain flange“). However, I wouldn’t be hesitant to try this method out, if it’s got the turnkey approval from a mud meister.

"turnkey approval from a mud meister."
Chris I'll take that as a huge compliment, I consider Davy and John to be mud meisters and I'm still trying to get on they're level.

Without screeds, like I did it, I'd say it took a little longer. Although I did ride the bottom plate for an even cut and then lower it from there it took longer. I added water to what the bags said plus a little more so that when I mag floated it, the mud actually had that little too wet deck mud look to it.

Overall if I had set side screeds it would have been pretty quick, but you do have to add water slowly so it doesn't mess up the top with a pump sprayer. All in all if I had plenty of water privileges I'd of mixed it with my mud auger. For me I'd use it only for a preslope would not try it for a tileable bed. But was nice to employ it for my specific situation and know about it working for others.

A former moderator and one-time friend, Bud Cline, came up with my Mudmeister title. I thought at the time and still do that it meant that I was in charge of the Mud Box forum. If it has to do with mud work, I'm now a former mudmeister, and there are others here who have eclipsed anything I ever did.

Thanks Justin, I appreciate your feedback on the ordeal. I’m thinking I’ll try this out for fun with the next few preslopes. Who knows maybe I like it and we starts to do some deck mud floors at 5/8” min. With wire using this method and embed us some stratamat over it. Could be Cheaper than SLU & maybe a tighter assembly with the uncoupling mat keeping the mud and tile in tact...Pipe Dreams or Early Morning Delirium.
Outside of repetition all of my mud work capabilities have come through the archived mud threads and generous expert individuals on this forum who share their knowledge willingly. It’s invaluable in every which way. The material is the material, but the concepts and applications are what separates the playing field when looking at tile possibilities with v.s. without fat or deck mud work.

A little time saver/one less tool to clean on float days for walls Chris is use your hawk to check the squareness of your sticks the same way you'd use a speed square. (assuming your hawk is square, most are)
