    Default Waterstop size?

    OK I am DIYing my Ensuite. So im not sure what size waterstop i am suppose to use.

    This may not make sense so ill try, I am to be using 600x300x10mm porcelain tile which as a water stop for the shower and the heating vent I used excess tile trim.

    So with the table saw i cut the bulging profile from the trim which made the height of the trim 8mm so it would sit lets say "inside the grout" not looking a the regs I am under the impression the waterstop is suppose to be visible from once the grout line in finish?

    So long story short, what size should i be using for the size tile, inc adhesive etc?

    oh and sub floor is tongue groove and the showerbase is a fibreglass walk in base.

    All help appreciated

    This is how the waterstop angles in our showers look.

    On the lower side (shower side) the tile top surface is about 8mm below the top of the waterstop. On the higher side (general bathroom area) the waterstop finished about 1mm below the top of the tiles, giving a generally foot-friendly edge to the tiles.

    The waterstops are used to create two different levels in the screed - a lower level in the shower to prevent the shower water from spilling out into the bathroom, and a slightly higher level for the rest of the bathroom. Iím not sure what you are expecting your waterstops to do exactly?

    Sorry, that photo is upside down. I was using a photo editor to try to stop it appearing sideways and this is what I get. Trying again.
