Requesting Evaluation of Master Bathroom Renovation

We are renovating our master bathroom currently and I'd like a second professional opinion on the recently completed plumbing effort, which required six days of on-site work by the plumber. It just passed an inspection that included a shower pan test, but given the amount of time spent in this area I'd like to read other plumber's evaluation.

I know nothing about pex, so someone else will have to comment on the plumbing. I was just curious why you decided to go with a traditional shower construction rather than using a surface applied membrane. The availability of kerdi was the thing that made me feel I could build a steamer without risking rotting my house. What are your final water/vapor-proofing plans? And how big a generator did you need for that ginormous space? I think I'd blow my main breaker if I tried to steam up something that size. It may be bigger than my whole guest bath.

kerdi, wedi, jedi waterproofing

Hi, Wendy.

I'm sorry, but I don't know what a surface applied membrane is, but it sure sounds impressive. I don't know what kerdi is but the waterproofing product they are using for our shower is called wedi. I think kerdi and wedi are probably competing products, but I'm not certain on that. They certainly sound similar in name. They are sealing the wedi seams and facets with multiple coats of what they call "glue". The steam generator is called Mr. Steam with a butler package, whatever that means.
