Keep in mind that the 1/4" per foot is the minimum requirement.

I decided to put in my Better Bench before tiling underneath it. Just felt that that would allow me to better align the tiles afterwards. How long do I need to let the dry pack set in the Bench before I wrap it in Kerdi and move on?

I would recommend you wait 24 hours, Peter, or at least 'till tomorrow. If you're absolutely sure you can trowel on your mortar and apply your membrane without disturbing your mud, you can do it right now. I'm usually not that confident.

Well, then, let me paraphrase the actual ANSI standard for setting over a cured mortar bed. Under normal conditions a 20 hour cure is the minimum, but longer cures up to 10 days are desirable.

Excuses R Us.

He has plenty time to float down Barton's Creek now. Several times.

You reckon Barton Creek's got any water in it, Davy?

Don't let your mud dry, Peter. Keep it damp and watch it cure.

I'm not sure, Kelly. I would think so.

I've never paid any attention to that creek when I've been in that area, Davy, so I got no eye-dee how much water is "normal" for it. I do know we're pretty dry down this way, though.

CX, was I supposed to keep the mud on the bench damp while it cured? I didn't do that. Looks fine, hoping it is since it's now been 36 hours since I laid it down

Always best to damp cure deck mud and concrete, Peter. Your bench will probably be OK, but woulda been more OK if you'd have wrapped it in plastic after you'd finished it. Don't lose any sleep over it.

My opinion; worth price charged.
