How thick should my thinset be?


YM, HOPE YOU GOT YOUR ANSWER WHILE DOING IT. Not sure how your thin set came out, but hope it worked for you. I'm about ready to start my thin set, but was wondering if I not go thru this but get the pre-mix motar from HD. I'm be puting it over my sub floor than cbu then motar again for the tile. Im concerns about doing the mix, I can't even get a right pancake mix correctly(too watery and no patient.
Any answers or advices before I start from you or others will be a great helps.(Isn't this what the forum for =to get some advices and tale from other experts.

I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination.
I don't know how good pre mixed mortar is, I have never used it.

I used modified thinset Flexbond for my ceramic tiles.

When you mix your mortar you can follow the instructions on the bag. It tells you how much water to add.

When I mixed my thinset, I made sure that when I troweled it on that the ridges stand up and do not fall. After a while you will get the hang of it.
Good luck.

Rediculous!!! Please use "real" thinset. Go read your other thread on the topic, there are plenty of warnings for you there.
