Usually, a water leak test is done after a PVC linear or similar type of protection is finished being installed (this I've done). However, in my case with a PVC linear and after the mortar bed has been created and dried, is it safe to do another water leak test?

It seems once the mortar bed is created on top of the PVC linear and has dried (easily over a few weeks in my case), it is thereafter tiled over. However, is there any negative effect to performing a water leak test or simply running water over the mortar bed prior to tiling?

In looking around on the internet, I only ever see a water leak test done prior to the mortar bed being laid. Yet, what about after the mortar bed?

I would think it would have no effect on the mortar once it has cured and dried, but just asking to see if someone says otherwise. :smile:
