comment Low hot water pressure in one fixture after water heater replacement
Thanks! I took apart the mixing assembly and it turned out there were bits of solder stuck in one of the pressure regulator pistons. After removing it, everything is back to normal.

comment How can I prepare this concrete floor for tile?
If my Googling serves me, that'd essentially be framing a floor with 2x4's and covering that with plywood. I'm not sure I can afford the to lose 4" of height without it starting to be a little too cramped.

I did use a lead check kit and wiped the test unit over all the various layers and it came up clean. I think based on your answer, I may grab a grinding cup to replace my sanding disc, and try and remove as much as possible, then use the leveler. I was likely going to have to do that anyway, as the existing floor while pretty flat isn't as flat as the 1/8" over 10ft span requirement for slate tile. These conrete-based leveler compounds should bond OK even though the surface will probably still be pretty non-porous?

Ideally slate, but I haven't fully decided yet. If not, then likely normal ceramic tile.
