Thanks for the quick response bbcamp. If deck mud is the way to go - and it sounds like it will be fine, I had planned to coat the sides of the hole just as you suggested.

One more question - Since this hole gives me the opportunity to set my drain at or just slightly below the level surface of the concrete, what would you recommend as the thinnest you would allow your layer of deck mud to get on the slope bed as it crosses the edges of the hole? I hope that question makes sense.

Grout Question

I've FINALLY gotten to some tiling! I couldn't start in the shower where I wanted to because I'm still waiting on some of the tile. So I started on the main floor of the bathroom. I used versabond to set porcelain tile on concrete. How long do I need to wait until I can safely grout the tile and continue on with installing the vanity and toilet? Since I'm at a stand-still waiting for my shower tile, I'd like to move on with other parts of the project. Thanks much for the advice.

I'd wanna give it a good 24 hours, Mike. Or whatever the grout manfacturer calls for, whichever is longer.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Thanks CX. That's pretty much what I was thinking.

Small problem with Kerdi shower floor

I had one of my 2x2 slate tiles pop loose from my shower floor (not grout yet) and in the process of cleaning out the dried thinset, I managed to put a very small hole in the kerdi.
I really don't want to pop off more tiles to gain 2" all the way around the perforation for patching. Is there another alternative for this? Can a single tile be caulked in place instead?
