1/2" per foot is still OK. I would aim for about a 3% slope.

Avoid 1% slopes and 2% at the least.

I read online Kerdi is Hydro Phobic and repels water. I also read it doesn't leak with a pinhole if you do the vortex fold.

You are suppose to use the cheapest thin set instead of premium modifieds and their is nothing thinner on the market that I know of.

Why wouldn't you use it?

Hey Greg - I got some Ardex training happening this week!

Going to get trained up on polished concrete shower floors. Nice. My Ardex rep told me they are doing some Kerdi / Ardex hybrid installs here in Vancouver and offered to give me a tour.

Now if your going to use modified thin set with Kerdi - why not use Ardex setting materials and get a warranty. Make sense to me. If Schluter voids your warranty because you use the wrong thin set - then get the warranty from the one making the thin set.

Pretty easy to do I think. Just call the Ardex team and describe your install.

Wait a minute......didn't you argue with me about the Ardex/Schluter warranty in the past? Yes, you did.....

Good to see you have come around.

I was told years ago by Ardex that they would provide a ten year written warranty for Ditra if you used Ardex FB-9L under and over the Ditra. I have done so many times, but never actually requested the written warranty. Those installs aren't going anywhere, and I am soooooo not worried about a warranty.

Actually because of you I looked harder into the whole thing and just had a meeting a few days back (by phone) with Glenn from Ardex.

When a rep tells you over the phone he is giving out written warranties for these installs that has got my attention.

Hell - I might even install my Kerdi Line drain now.

Check out this Kerdi Line drain install from Ceramiques Hugo. This is one master setter and that is what I call a bathroom. Check out is website here http://www.ceramiqueshugo.com. He works out of Montreal and exclusively uses Kerdi.

I found him thanks to Courtney at Schluter and asked if I could share his work pictures for my Build Ex session.
