What the heck are all you Florida monkeys doing over here? Opie, is it true you finally got your ass banned from JB? I've been busy and havent spent much time over there to see all the carnage.

Oh, and stop quoting Billy Joel songs.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


Opie - Curious to know how you applied the Hydroban - brush, roller ? How many coats ?

What's the board on the walls ?

Just about got this job wrapped up today. This is Redguard - 1 primer coat 4/1 water and 2 addl coats applied with a 1/2" x 6 " roller.

Maybe I'll give the Hydroban a try next job.

That looks like Hydro Barrier, not Hydro Ban.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


Thanks for that correction and info. Hydroban is not a pan liner.

Same questions though...

Hydroban can be used as a pan liner. It is a surface applied waterproofing membrane.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


its hydrobarrier. I rolled it on with a 3/8 nap roller and applied 4 coats. I used mesh in the corners as recomended by laticrete. Hydro barrier can be used as a pan application. It is the sister product of Hydroban.

I did water tests today and no leak. I dumped in 12 gallons of waters of let it sit for 9 hours. It doesnt leak. I just wish laticrete would come out with a drain. I feel like i am vandilizing my shower with a schulter drain.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


totaly agrreee angus......but wish laticrete would come out with something far out.. The drains ar 85 bucks. In all reality if ya change the drain and buy the pan you are at about 65 bucks . So its not much more for the drain the do a easier pan with less mudd.....

I haven't bought the drain separately. I can get the full 4x4 kit for under $350.
