  1. Our wetroom. I feel sick. And for months I have been doing other jobs instead - not that there's any shortage of them. But this particular one fills me with dread. Here goes. What have we got? This..... The North wall The south wall The east wall The west wall ( all bar a little bit) and we'd like to use a Wedi Riofino base for the shower bit - like this I dont know how many times I have dipped my big toe into @Onoff's posts - many many times. And while its been instructive, its also itemised what I can get wrong. Geberit Sigma frame and AquaClean Tuma already bought. And a small Geberit hand wash basin. SWMBO has the tiles detail. Small area of electric underfloor heat ( a square meter or so) On the east wall, we'd like Multipanel. Elsewhere tiles. Lets start with a simple question: walls before floor or the other way round?
  2. Our ensuite has a wet room former and setcrete latex self levelling elsewhere over UFH. I've tanked the former and surrounding area as per @Nickfromwales excellent tanking thread and I'm now waiting for it to dry. Question is should I use primer on the tanked area and the latex before tiling and if so any particular one? I've quite a lot of the setcrete acrylic primer left if its any use? SBR? Thanks
  3. I am just trying to canvas reasons different people have for a preference. I tend to prefer walk-in showers, as I perceive wetrooms to be more vulnerable to damage / wear and tear. Though I think of showers as being weaker wrt non-slip, and also level changes, What did you decide, and why? Ferdinand
  4. Figured I might as well ask some questions on the subject of tanking a wet room on it's own thread! Might assist someone else. I have an Aquaseal Large Waterproof Tanking Kit. First off it comes with a "Waterproof Tanking Drain Mat", this: It's about 400x400mm. It's meant to go under / around the shower waste. However, as I'm having a Geberit wall drain that has a membrane built in: I was wondering if I could then use the now spare Drain Mat over the shower mixer?
  5. Our en-suite and main bathroom will both be wet rooms. I have identified the wet room formers for the 2 shower areas, they are 22mm thick, but for reasons of budget (lack of) I am not buying them yet. I do however want to floor most of the rooms. So what 22mm thick floor boarding for a wet room, suspended on Posijoists at 600mm centres? Is it as simple as P5 chipboard, or something more exotic?
