    I doubt they want me (or anybody) to bury any pipes in the concrete floor. So I'm not sure how to work around that issue other than just not tiling that area or doing it "half-assed" like dlarrivee...

    Why do I need to bury the cast drain line? Can I not just tile around it? Or change it all to PVC and only bury the part that's already in that little trench?

    Why does the drain need to be...

    Yes, it does. How thick of thinset should be between the flange and the Ditra underlayment?

    Ok, great!

    So am I right about installing the trim strip? The tile sits directly on it? Or is there supposed to be grout between the two?

    No, the "bad" cut is the one that is up against the trim strip. The other cuts, like the ones around the door casing, are easier to hide. I did cut the casing molding at the top of the tile to slip...

    Thanks!

    How do these stack up as far as being robust and durable? I've never quite trusted push fittings that rely on o-rings.

    Thanks, I'll try that.

    Maybe I'm worrying too much about it. I'm going to try a wax free seal, and get a buddy to help since I've never set a toilet before.

    I'm guessing I can find some kind of shimming kit at Lowes?
