No, I thought I said your opinion sucked. But that's OK. I wasn't trying to hurt your feeling.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


OK guys, I just wanted to let everyone know, this was all a joke. Me and Rob were not really going at it. It was a staged joke and it has obviously ran its course.

I apologize for taking it this far and running this thread so far off topic.

I trust Rob and his abilities. I would work with him whenever the chance arose. I have talked to some of you off the forum and know I have said that about him many times.

I started by trying to bust his jewels some but it carried to a larger joke wanting to see when someone would tell us to knock it off. I received my PM about this and we're done.

I just wish I had enough time in my day to stage a tile saw showdown. I enjoyed every minute of it though

Started with a dark old fiberglass tub. Then relocated shower valve to the back wall. Shower head in same spot. Warm wire heated floor and shower floor. This was the first time I used the ditra heat membrain. The glass door and panel are on order so curtain for temporary.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


Set the ditra, left for the night and came back to a buckle near the seam. Was pretty puzzled at first thought maybe I put the sheets to close together or something. For some reason there was a delaminated layer in the plywood about a couple layers down. Water from the thinset went down and swelled the layers up. Ugh

Why move the valve? Seems like you'll turn on the shower and get hit in the face with the stream.

Where the toilet is now there will be a solid glass panel. So if the control was under the shower head then you would have to go into the shower reach clear to the far side. Turn it on and run before the water comes out and hope you guessed at the correct temperature or else suffer reaching in with either cold water still or scolding. After the door is installed. Just open the swinging door on the left hand side. Turn the water on and stay out of harms way.

I guess I don't see the new location as out of harms way, but I can understand the reasoning.

As for the temperature selection that's why I love a temp valve.

I corrected it. Swing door on right hand side.

Around here they might allow it this way but not under the shower head if there's fixed glass there. Shower heads tend to spray the water down at a pretty steep angle and hit the floor not much more than 3 feet away. You might get your foot wet.

It was a tub (60") and looks like the valve is setback in the middle which would be less than 3'. You are not out of "harms way".

Installing a diverter is a much better solution.

Angus, the way you tiled around the border on this shower, how did you space around it? With blocks as spacers or finish nails to hold the next row and than patch the holes? Or some entirely different option?

Thanks

Cut strips of Ditra to pad out border. Used cut pieces of spare tile to set row above border. Removed spacer tile and set 2nd layer of Ditra to pad boarder.

Dare I ask what type of thinset you use between the ditra and Aqua D? And what kind of thinset over the ditra for the mosaic? ...that schluter confuses me.

Schluter recommends UNmodified between Ditra and tile.

And, between substraight and Ditra it's whatever is best for the substraight, often modified.

Some thinset manufactures will pick up Schluter's warranty if you use their product. Specifically Ardex, when using their modified.
