    Nice thread. I need to quote for a small wet room. How long would you say to prep the floor area and add tray and tank? It is only a 3m X 1m room?

    Is it not the travetine rather than the silicone at fault? Was the trav oiled or have any treatment on it

    Probably been said previous but use marmox board strong as double the thickness ply. Just adhesive on then screw + tape and paint the joints and screw heads sorted.

    Why do you need to put 2 X 18mm wpb? I thought one would be enough. So bal is the tanking kit to use then?
