    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?

    It must have just peeled from the chalky edge of the travitine then. treat the joint edges with that sealer stuff.

    Normal silicone, even good quality will not stick to stone. The curing process it too quick and it then detaches.
    This is the only one I use on stone.
    MAPEI adhesives sealants chemical products for construction
