What's the compound you used in the verticle corner already?
How much money did you save by not using the recommended amount of screws in the wall board?

Thought so! Acrylpro is a premixed mastic and mastic is what we are warning against when used in showers. It (mastic) has been known to re-emulsify when it gets wet. It is not suitable for tile in wet areas in a lot of cases and it certainly isn't suitable to run joints with for the same reasons.

I know, I know, the instructions say it's used for showers but it doesn't work that well and is problematic. Mastic has its place but a wet area isn't it. Get rid of that crap!

Eight to ten inches? What does the backerboard maker recommend? In the picture I didn't think I was seeing screws eight to ten inches apart, it looks like much more. Also, the board needs to be screwed to each stud. What is the stud spacing of that wall?

Well yow !!! That gaping hole at the top begs to be filled. But NOT WITH ACRYLPRO! I would fill it with thinset. Mix it stiff, fill the gap, tape over the fill and make another pass. Expect the thinset to sag and be a huge pain in the butt. If you mix it thick enough it won't sag real bad but it will sag. Once it is dry, you'll probably have to grind it some with a square rub-stone. A gap that big is a mistake...but, OH WELL!

That's not at all a problem...keep asking questions. Maybe you should always "ask" BEFORE you move ahead!!!

OK, what else? What did I miss?

i am gonna redguard everything, and this is my wifes bathroom. i installed a jacuzzi tub and she HATES showers. so it might not ever see a shower. i am just gonna hope it works out ok.
and vthe studs are 16"
the pic does look like the screws are farther .
and i was left with the gap on the ceiling because the old walls were much thicker.
im no expert. "like u didnt know"
just a first time homeowner having fun.

thanks for the info

Good Deal!
Throw away the Acrylpro but SAVE THE BUCKET. Those buckets are excellent for mixing thinset and then being able to dip it out of the bucket with a notched trowel.

I do, but I'm not sure it is totally necessary.
