    FWIW, if you read my posts, I suggest products from a variety of companies. It's just that when confronted with biased, incorrect, and often misused advice on Schluter products, since I know them...

    FWIW, there are FOUR different versions of Ditra. Two of them cannot easily be made waterproof like the others: Ditra Drain (has holes in it for drainage - DUH, it can't be waterproof), and Ditra...

    Note, too, that there are limitations where, along the joist that you can drill holes. For example, you cannot drill one within a certain distance of each end.

    The pipes expand when they get hot. If there are clamps or holes where the pipe is too tight, as it both expands and contracts, it will 'jump' when it overcomes the friction. It does this while the...

    ANy 12" rough-in toilet will work if there's at least 12", and if it's further from the wall, the toilet will still fit, but project into the room a bit further. Most toilets have at least some...

    I'm not defending or chastising them on the presentation, but it was pretty basic, mostly on final looks, not necessarily on how to accomplish it.

    An S-trap can actually siphon itself. A vent, on a proper drain configuration, prevents that. The seal in the trap is what prevents sewer flies, gasses, and other nasty smells from wafting up into...

  10. What happens to water in use?

    I've made the comment that 99.99% of the water hitting a shower goes down the drain, and been condemned as a fool, so I thought maybe a little math might help things a bit rather than hyperbole.

    Delta also makes a thermostatically controlled valve option. But, on their volume/temp (not thermostatically controlled), it is controlling the fixed mix of hot and cold, not the actual temperature...

    There's much more to what John is saying than is being said...this is a complex topic and you need the whole story. Ditra can be used as part of an external deck over living space, but you still...

    I do not usually look at external links for pictures, and did not see them. But, I think it's kind of extreme here to tell them to tear it out and start over. You need the areas with puckers to be...

    RTFM!

    Hydroban sheet membrane - surface should be flat within 1/16" in a foot between high spots and 1/4" in 10' (and other requirements). One slightly bowed stud, and you're out of spec.

    John sure knows how to twist words.

    Ditra drain, at least in the USA, is fairly new. It is a form of Ditra that does what it says...allows drainage. Therefore, since it has holes in it, it is...

    Schluter says under these circumstances, it's not unusual for water to wick into a seam up to about the 1/4" you're seeing. The obvious goal is to not let water behind the membrane. Once you've...
