So - if a Schluter foam tray is not installed PERFECTLY LEVEL with the EXACT RIGHT AMOUNT OF THIN-SET then it's a TEAR OUT.
Thank you Mr. Kerdi shower pan.
I guess you folks on John Bridge's forum only answer the tough questions when some Troll on Terry Forum's calls you out or brings attention to your lack of knowledge. Jim you also defended John Bridge here not to long ago when I called him a hack for "Spot Setting Tile" - what a washed up sell out hack he is.
Then you said it's OK and the TCNA recommends its. You forgot to mention the part of epoxy thin set mortar only and the part about exterior walls....
Selective wording - all in a salesman's day.
Drywall is for hacks.
Spot setting is for hacks.
This is the real story here.
