Not at all the same sort of product, Paul.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Thinset bonds real well to sheetrock and I can see the Eco Prime improving the bond. I don't know if Redgard would help or not.

Ended up using this stuff to prime sheetrock. Man, the thinset really sticks to it. I couldnt hardly get it to whip off with wet sponge. It goes on and dries a deep blue color.

Looks good, Paul, I really like how the tile looks wrapping around the corner and around and over the closet door.

I had to bust a few tiles out today, at the top of the knee wall, because they were cut to short. Once I went to set the 2nd knee wall granite top piece, there was to much of gap between top of tiles and bottom of granite. It would have bugged me out. Anyways, I figured that this would be a good time to see how well I did with getting full coverage with the thinset. What you guys think? I see a few missing spots, but I'm not sure that didn't break off when I hammered it out. It took a few swings and bounces to actually get the tile to crack. It would take a pretty substantial blow to actually crack one if you were not trying to.

I have a few questions about grout.

I'm doing the grout now. Did 1/2 yesterday. Have a few questions.

1. A few places need touch up, like we wiped out to much grout, and there a sharp edge on tile sticking out past grout line, can I grout on top of grout? It was grouted yesterday.

2. How much lip should there be? Like should the grout and tiles pretty much be flat? Or should the grout be indented?

3. How do you finish the the transition between top row of tile and sheetrock ceiling? Color matching caulk?

1. What grout? Be specific.

2. None, ideally.

3. Generally, yes.

CBP Prism grout. I think this is good stuff, but I really dont like it, as it is super fast setting, and there just isnt any way you going to get a bag out before it sets up, Really, in about 30 mins, what left in a bucket is hard as a rock. I had to get sledge hammer out to get it out of bucket. LOL, this was my favorite bucket...

Thanks CX. You have been a huge help with this project. Really, Thanks everyone!!!

With cementitious grouts you're limited to living with what you've got or removing all of it at least down 2/3rds of the tile thickness and re-grouting. New grout won't bond effectively to old grout.

My opinion; worth price charged.

I use Prism on nearly every job and I've never had it get rock hard in 30 minutes, even in the summer. It will get hard in a couple hours but it's not a problem because I never mix a whole bag at a time. If you're having a problem with it setting faster than you like, mix smaller batches.

That's what I did Davy, broke it down into 2 lb mixes, using the 1lb for 4 ounces water. If I needed any extra water, I would drive from sponge. That worked great. Is the prism you use, the fast setting type? I wonder if I just got an oddball? It even says on box, don't mix more than you can work in 30 mins

I think all Prism is fast setting. I didn't know that for a long time, it acts like any other cement based grout to me although I did notice that it gets hard in a couple hours.
