    1) I'm a DIY and could use some advise; I installed (approximately 15 sq. ft.) of 6 x 6 ceramic tiles on my shower ceiling over dry wall with painted stucco on it? I'm afraid that the tile will fall out or collect moisture.

    I didn't tape the seams of my Hardibacker before installing 12 x 12 porcelain floor tiles on my shower walls. I used MAPEI Polymer-Modified Mortar for the walls and spread it on pretty thick and pushed it through the seams. Could I be looking at possible trouble down the road?

    2) While in the basement I notice that 3" x 5" hole where the pan liner is showing through the sub floor, and there is a 1/2" lip along the shower curb were the sub floor is uneven. Should I fix this before laying down mortar and I didn't put in a pre-slope before installing the pan liner, do I need to fix this as well?!

    3) I removed the copper lines and installed PEX lines in the shower, so far no leaks. I have high pressure in my neighbor hood would it be in my best interest to install a pressure reducing valve.

    Not really sure about this procedure just what I have researched on the internet. I am so frustrated with this project, its difficult knowing what to do especially for a first timer.I'm not a expert subject matter so any advice would be helpful, thank you.
