Fixed!

...no on to a flood test tomorrow!

(I'm leaning the level so the light shines through since the gap is so small now)

Note: my level is only 15" long so doesn't show the much larger slope that there is...it rises about 1.5" over the 4ft to the right)



Thx for the help!

Need help avoiding sliver tile cuts

I messed up the design of my corner seat and it's now too high and will force sliver cuts at the edge of my tiles!!
Arrrg!!

It's only 9/16th at the thickest and due to the slope of the stone I will be using it narrows down to 5/16th.
You can see the rough lines in the attached picture.

I have already thinsetted a row of tiles down so I am committed to this now .. grr.
I really do not want to insert a partial height row to offset the course.

I was thinking I could just raise the seat by 9/16th and solve my problem that way.
I could use thinset and just recover it with more membrane... Does anyone have any other ideas to raise the seat by 9/16 or is this a decent idea?


Thanks in advance!

There's a version of SLC that is thixotropic...which means that it flows when you manually move it, but stays where you put it when you stop, so that can be used to make a slope unlike the more liquid versions.

While some thinsets are spec'ed for near that thickness, it tends to shrink and crack if you do, so the SLC might work out for you. Not sure this is a good use for the stuff, and you'd have to buy a whole bag, and the stuff isn't cheap, but in the scheme of things, it might work for you. I know Mapei makes one, and you might give their tech support line a call to see what they think.

is this membrane even listed (approved) for use as a shower liner with the Uniform Plumbing Code? The Drain? There should be a UPC
acceptance printed on it and I dont see it.

I used some scrap tile pieces embedded inside thinset to take up some volume on a niche instead of using only pure thinset. Might be an option, though there could be better ideas out there.

Not Listed(approved) with UPC.. I also see no mention of meeting the ANSI Standard.

Ryan, a geographic location in your User Profile would likely help with some of these questions.

I recommend you reach out to the membrane manufacturer, and find out what they recommend.

Thanks, Ryan. As anticipated, you're not in the US of A and ANSI and ASTM and TCNA may not apply. You'll need to follow the Canadian guidelines, with which I'm not terribly familiar. Someone at TTMAC could guide you in all such matters.

Canada is a pretty broad location. Narrowing that a bit could be more helpful. I could say I'm in the USA and that would not be very meaningful at all for questions influenced by climate. Florida being a bit different from Main, for example. 'Course, we know all of Canada is above the Arctic circle, so there's that, at least.

My opinion; worth price charged.
