I'm using a trench drain so the height isn't an issue...sorry, I should have mentioned that...

I called Schluter and they have no problem with my plan.

The problem is the pebble tiles were cheap and the size difference between the pebbles is really large. Plus, I wasn't able to get the seams to disappear properly...my first time to lay these...

Anyway, appreciate the replies...

Just FYI, the seams usually don't disappear. I typically pull about 50% of them off the sheets and hand install so that you can't see the seams.

If you have any extras you might try doing a mock up on a scrap piece of backerboard and grout them to see what it looks like. You might be surprised.

By trench drain do you mean a Kerdi-line drain? You don't want to integrate Kerdi with anything other than their drain products.

Actually it's a trench drain called "whatadrain" with a bonded kerdi flange. Talked to many people who have used it and it came highly recommended. Check out the website of the same name.

Chris, it'd be helpful if you add a link to the specific drain you're using so everyone would be on the same page when discussing it.
