It wasn't cheap. About $350 or so.

But it was better than busting up the floor and replacing those mats.

Wow...I'm just going to skip the shower. More simple, and the shower floor should get pretty warm anyway with the water hitting it.

I talked to Suntouch and they said the heat element MUST be embedded in the same thinset that holds the tile - in other words the heat element goes on TOP of the Kerdi.

Ah, well that'd make me too nervous. I already ordered the mat to fit my bathroom other than the shower.

Good info though, thanks.
