Installing a shower pan
Thanks again Mike... two more questions.
1. Last time I did a radiant system I laid the electric wire into the thinset under the tile- my understanding was that I would get a quicker response time since the heat was closer to the tiles. Is this bad? I know I have to be careful not to knick the wire during installation- is that why you recommend embedding it into the thinset or are there other reasons?
2. I must admit to being terrified of self leveling compound. I keep picturing ending up with a big pile of it in one spot hard as a rock, or half the room being covered by it, with the other half not, and the two halves being at different heights. Am I making something out of nothing? I've never worked with the stuff before, and the fact that it dries hard like concrete scares the bejeezus out of me. Any advice?
