Passed, water line didn't drop at all. Test pan didn't loose a drop at all either. Time to tile...not tonight, tonight is scotch!

Just picked up my marble top for the curb. When I installed the Kerdi curb I used 1/8" spacers to tilt it toward the drain, wondering if 1/8" is enough or should I tilt the marble another 1/16"? Or am I over thinking it?

The curb’s, what, maybe 4 or 5” wide? The 1/8” would give you a bit more than the desired 1/4” per ft slope. If using a glass door, adding too much slope could make any brackets for the glass, especially if it’s a slider, a bit problematic. Surface tension will still hold some water on the curb; the goal is to get it to run back to the shower pan, not the floor outside.
I think you’re over thinking it.

I had one tile loosly leaning against the wall, its a cut tile that is above the sloped bench and its giving me fits so i put it off until i get further along in the job. Well when i moved the tile the wall behjnd it was soaked, the back of the tile was completrely dry. It is an outside wall and it is well insulated. On that wall there are probably 25 tiles already installed, they are cold to the touch but no moisture appearing anywhere around them. Am i looking at a cold glass of water on a hot day situation, where the kerdi wall is cold and the room's heat warmed the tile causing condensation on the wall? There is no water sourse near that area so its not a leaky pipe.
