We agree about the sand topping mix. It was easy to use and available at Home Depot. We did add some sand to it as noted above. It was very easy to work with. We added a little more water to the mix for the second layer of concrete because we knew it would take us longer and we did not want to run out of time. It was like "sand castle" sand.
We have not done the tile portion of the project yet. That starts tomorrow. Thinset is supposed to adhere to concrete according to the directions and everything that we have read. We are using ceramic tile.
yes it hold very well this is what most of the pro use.I did mine about a year ago with sand topping mix all is still fine.The thinset( get the right one) has held the membrain in place and I used natural stone tile nothing has moved and it has gotten a work out since it was the only shower for awhile when I tore the other apart
