Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


You are correct about warranties. I'm not worried about them.

What I use has been put together from using many different products in order to give me the confidence I'm installing the best I can considering price, product availability and speed.

BTW, Noble has always been helpful when it came to mixing their product(s) with another. And the only installation materials they are missing from a total install would be thinset .

Kerdi. I don't know much about it but thought it was similar to Kerdi. Since you're using the rest of the bottom components from Schluter, I thought it'd make sense to use Kerdi.

NobleSeal is much thicker. For such a critical part of the shower, I Feel much better about using it.

There was a guy on the internet bashing the living hell out of Schluter and trying to sell the Prova line instead. Things got hairy with him. I don't have any personal experience with Prova because once you're threatened to be sued by a distributor of Prova, you're not worried about using it.

I used a Prova pan and drain on my last shower, it was the only brand that would conveniently fit my 4x5 base.
I couldn't tell the difference between it and Schleuter. I liked the Prova drain setup better I think.

Can you elaborate at All? I searvhed a bunch online and saw a few sites. Seems the creators used to work for schluter but created their own because schluter wanted too much for their products?

No one around here has nobleseal and I hate using unmodified thinset as I'm so used to AD but I'm trying to expand horizons. As mentioned in another thread I'm considering leaving bathroom renos but I still like to educate myself

For whatever reason a certain retailer thought he could come online and start an anti-Schluter campaign. They were making claims about Schluter failures that could never be corroborated.

I assume it was just scare tactics to get some people to buy their own stuff. I was singled out by calling them out on some of the claims. That's all.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


I used prova once. Didn't like it. did it for a friend who already bought the stuff. The fabric is stiff, and the drain doesn't have any adjustability besides up and down. I like that I can tweak the Kerdi drain side to side a bit to line up with grout joints if necessary.

Sadly, my friend did fall for the anti Schluter rap that Arizona douche was spewing.

It is a pain for sure, but a well placed niche is so much better than ugly shelves. I will upload a few more of the whole shower when its all done and has its lipstick and mascara on

Thanks Craig. It turned out better than any niche I've done yet. Angus was kind enough to tell me how he does it.

I was thinking of you today though. Didn't you mention at some point using the pamfast hot glue gun for gluing the Schluter corners together?

They went together and stayed together better than I thought they would but I think it could be helpful to glue them together and not have to keep messing with them.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


Very nice! I got the pics while I was mid-floor leveling in a bathroom so didn't see them until later.

See, it's not too hard to do to make it fit within your joints, right?

General question for Rondec users. Why not use the inside corners instead of mitering? Just curious. I will miter Quadec and Jolly unless the the customer wants the Quandec factory corners.
