Thank you for the article.
"deck mud" used to be mystery to me, while ago, so to add:
Deck mud can be made with bagged sandmix from stores. Carefully add water until a ball does not crumble by itself but also does not sag under its own weight due to water. It is a mix made dry as possible. This deck is not water proofing. It only makes slope for drain.

Re: "Mud" What is it?


I found a pretty good website a while back that helps determine the best "mud"
http://www.elitebuilding.com/tile/re...ortarguide.htm

If you go under reference guides it even tells you what size trowel is best for what size tile etc. Basically tells you the best materials and application for each tile.

Re: "Mud" What is it?


Sounds kind of like a shill for the company? Not especially good or usable info there. It's funny that in some categories there are 2 choices better than "Best". There are much better sources of info out there than that.
