So despite all the bad reviews I went ahead and ordered a tile redi pan and bench. What I got I did not expect, it is made from a yellow " Styrofoam "? type material. It states to set it with a type N or S mortar and to lay the tiles with modified thin set. And gives a list of 8 approved modified thin sets. I have researched every where trying to find more info on this "new" product. Trying to find someone who has had experience with it, and if it has the same problems as the older black and grey pans, i.e. mortar not setting up underneath the pan, flexing and voids in the pan , will the thin set really work instead of the epoxy they always wanted you to use before? So anyone use or know anything about this? Thanks.
