    Default Tiling over glass tiles

    After the ridiculous debacle with the bathroom and these little glass tiles, ive decided that ill sacrifice the 11mm of height in the toilet and just tile over the things.

    However, i figure im going to need to rough up the surface for the adhesive to bind to. Any ideas on how i should do this without them simply exploding on me?

    Has it been waterproofed yet?

    A run over the area with a cup grinder will have the job done in minutes, just make sure you have goggles and mask etc before you start.

    Good idea to have a fan in the doorway and the window open as well.

    Good luck.

    Would be waterproofed under the existing tiles. Vaguely considering taking them up and using the Ardit, as it claims a 3hr drying time.

    The waterproofing extends up the walls and will be damaged when you grind the surface.

    If the wall to floor interface and corners up to 1.80 metres are not sealed it will not meet the minimum of any waterproofing standard and will leak.

    Good luck.

    From all the reading i have done (including the AS spec) the AS 4858 only specifies 1.8m waterproofing for the shower recess.
    This is for the toilet (separate room).

    Either way the glass tiles came up today. The only thing that i could find which would stick to the glass tiles was Ardex CA20P, which is FAR more expensive than a few hours of getting the father-in-law to take up tiles in the toilet, and another bag of Ardit.

    Ooops, yes. Wrong document.
    I have access to all the AS documents via work, so ive been skipping between them. AS4858 is for the membranes themselves, 3740 is for their domestic application.
