    Have you considered getting someone in to waterproof the area, though they may not give warranty for what you have, can only try.

    Hi noggon,

    I know the Gripset products quite well, and the undertile membrane is very good - however it is grossly overpriced in Bunnings. You should look for a local stockist that sells the Gripset trade range, and you'll save yourself a fortune.

    Ignore the tiler - the last thing you want to be doing is using a black bitumen in a bathroom!

    What city are you in? I may be able to help you find a local stockist.

    What are you waterproofing bathroom ?

    Don't bother with the black bitumen stuff there are more suitable products around, I don't know who your tiler is but black waterproofing seems a bit out of date

    If your shopping at Bunnings have a look at products like the following, if your shopping elsewhere they will have similar products.

    Davko K10 Flex in green or grey
    Davco 20L Green K10 Plus Waterproofing Agent I/N 0960052 | Bunnings Warehouse

    If your in a real hurry they have there is a Rapid dry version, but really can't be in that much hurry.
    Davco 5L K10 Rapid Waterproofing Agent I/N 6650229 | Bunnings Warehouse

    Cromellin
    Crommelin 15L Shower Waterproofing Membrane I/N 0960103 | Bunnings Warehouse

    You MUST prep the surface first with a primer similar to the one below to give toe membrane the best possible bond
    Davco 1L Ultraprime Surface Primer I/N 6658116 | Bunnings Warehouse

    Make sure all dust etc is gone before doing anything waterproofing.

    Remember waterproofing is not simply slapping some paint on the walls, it involves,bondbreaking, bandaging all joins, folding down penetrations, waterstop angles, etc etc, it needs to be done right as a whole system or it will fail.

    Before you tile over waterproofing, don't use a ready-mixed tub.

    In case you don't understand this comment.

    Pre mixed glues and waterproofing compounds don't mix, only use bagged cement based glues ie: non pre mixed

    The walls are a bit uneven in some places (very old building). Should bagged cement based glues be used to plum them up for tiling ie thicker application? I was told if you tile uneven walls with thicker glue the tiles would become drummy.

    Post your question to one thread instead of three, it's easier for consistancy
