Ditra heat is a great product, makes installing a heated floor so much easier, good job on the video.

How are you going to waterproof the junction between the ditra and the wedi shower base? I would think subliner dry but Wedi doesn't like the idea of mixing their stuff with Schluter stuff. Might have missed this but can you comment on the electrical requirements for the ditra heat.

You mixed the thin set then cut the Matt?

I wonder how easy it will be to remove (scrape off) that orange underlay from the plywood in ten years when your tile is outdated?

Truly enjoyed this, thank you!

The instructions indicate to make sure the thermostat wire does not come into contact with the heating wire, even in the wall. Am I mistaken?

Great video! What type of knee pads are those you are using? Mine are always sliding so I am constantly readjusting them. Thanks.

Would like to use this system in basement with cement floor. Sometimes during spring this floor sweats and we have to use a dehumidifier.  Is this sweating a problem with this system? Thanks!
William Appleby
how long are the wires to the thermostat, and do you need run it thru conduit?

can i use a different thermostat (warmup wifi version), they say its compatible with all electic flooring up to 16a. but schulter website says you are forced to use their thermostat. using the warmup thermostat is more important to me so please let me know

It looks like you wired the two heating cables in parallel. Will this cause one section to heat more than the other? You want the same current flowing through the cables to get there same Watts/foot of cable and that means the two sections should be in series. Thanks for the video.

Love your video. I have a question concerning the splice going to the thermostat. You chiseled out a space so that the splice would be below or at level. I have a concrete floor and am using ditraheat-tb . Will there be enough room for the splice to sit without having to chisel out the concrete? I am laying tile on top of the ditraheat-tb. Should I be concerned ? Thanks

Why not install both sensors just in case one fails? Then you don't have to lift tiles to install the other sensor.

I'd really like a heated shower floor, can this be continued into the shower in a curbless walk in shower in place of a pan, or would it go over the pan?
Joe Bass
Did he show his quad box/ conduit installation and I just missed it?

Is Kerdi band installed at the seams and the outer edges?
