Soak Testing tiles is always a smart move. Preform a soak test !!!

Does the tile smell afterword.
Does the tile break down.
Does the tile change in appearance.

Just some of the things I look for after preforming a soak test.

Managing water below the tile is key. This past year I have been researching many new ways of improving this. Looking into drain mats, candle wick, hemp cord, positive weep hole protectors and on and on. Our cement production is changing. Do to environmental controls and the EPA - I fear this is having a negative effect on the showers we build.

You need to stay current. Plan for failures before they happen.

The tile work in the bathrooms are really gorgeous. My husband is working on installing the tile in our bathroom. I was wondering why my husband was laying the tile from the ceiling down. Now I have a much better understanding in the method behind his madness. He was trying to figure out how to guard against leaks. I should share him this information so that he can lay out the tile in our bathroom correctly. It would be a disaster if we had to remove all of the messed up tile and hire a contractor to finish the job. Thanks for the information!
