Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hannahma No problems whatsoever. Worked perfectly!
Despite all the complaints about product 'never' drying etc. etc., we had absolutely no problems with it. As do-it-our-selfers we did a tub surround, the bathroom floor and the laundry room floor with perfect results. Mortar stuck tight, dried quickly even with 18" x 18" tiles used and was easy to work with. No problems whatsoever. Worked perfectly!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hoganzzz I too just experienced the dreaded slow drying. Used Red Guard as the underlayment following the instructions of mortar, Red Guard, mortar, then tile and it didn't work. Red Guard is so wet that it has pulled away from the mortar on the floor, causing the grout lines to crack. 3 days of dry time and I can literally pull up every tile with a scraper and both the mortar under the tile and the mortar under the Red Guard are still wet. So wet the plywood floor is soaked like a wet toothpick.
Do not waste your money.
Good news is I took the empty bucket back, and the remainder of the Red Guard and Home Depot gave me a refund for both. Bought both bag mortar and Wonderboard with rock screws and am now going to have to pull everything up and relay it the traditional way. At least it's still wet and I can reuse the tile. What a mess.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ron999d Will NEVER buy this product again! Set up time extremely slow. 2 days for large format tile, but 5 to 7 days for the mosaic
strip that scented the other tiles. Mosaic was thinner and had to lay thicker mortar to level mosaic. Took forever...
Talked to some pros, who said they NEVER buy premixed for that very reason. Will always use bags that you mix yourself from now on.

Easy to spread. Dries faster to help tile from sliding or shifting. Used 1 bucket to lay over 110+ 12" tile. No rush on it drying out while laying tile or having to keep mixing it like regular mortar when you need more. Just simply open the bucket and ready to go. Little pricy but worth the money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dyier Home Depot Wedsite wrongly graded product - Employees said same in stores
Website says it is rated for exterior use and local Home Depot employees at 2 different store said the same thing about product and exterior grade rating -
End result 30 hours of labor wasted installing and then removing and cleaning tile
Cannot trust Home Depot employees or Web Sit manager to know anything about their products

Great to have the pre-mix in a pail and mixed to the right viscosity to allow easy application

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Runt Great if you need to stop before it is all used
This was easy to use, no mixing no mess. But you pay more.
