Hi guys, in regards to adhesive - is there any advantages of having the adhesive a bit wetter than what is advised on the bag as I am still having problems with coverage. The bag recommended mix seems a bit too stiff in my opinion. I am using maximum trowel size and also back buttering with notch and notches on floor and tile are in same direction. Would mixing the adhesive wetter make it weaker or stringer or same? Thanks
