We call the pea gravel stuff "Navvy Jack", "concrete sand" is just like "sharp sand", smaller than 1/8", sharp little pieces. I think I have the right stuff, just lacking skill or some knowledge. I...

It's been a while, I got side tracked, but I'm back on it now. Went with kerdi + redgard on the lower seams and denshield backer. Used some cement board too on the kerb, bench, and a couple places...

I'm in Victoria as well. Deal with the shipping problem constantly. It's the carriers that really gouge, and customs is a pain. Large companies can negotiate good rates though. When I order my...

Only the Durock membrane band is available from amazon.ca, not the actual membrane. Contractors direct would mean ordering from the USA, which means expensive shipping and customs/brokerage fees.

I don't believe the accusations of installer error on Isaac's part. He has multiple tests, even patch tests with differing amounts of thinset left under the band. Simple fact is that thinset isn't...

I agree that it's not common, but I wouldn't say a shower would never be subjected to that. Sometimes things drip and aren't remedied. The sprinkler test he did shows it doesn't have to be submerged...

Any wood with an epoxy coating would stand up better than uncoated teak. Epoxy is completely waterproof like fiberglass resin. I think I'll give it a try.

Back to the waterproofing system, what a...

Hi Kevin, yes, I'm in Canada.

Not bad for a tub built in 1976 with thin poly vapour barrier beneath fat mud float, nails throughout. A bit of discolouration in the plywood but no serious rot or...

I looked into the AlinO drain cause it's locally available, which means it's been CSA approved, which means I would trust it regardless of whether it's a "knock-off". What I'm trying to do is find...

Not trying to do what I want, I'm trying to find a bonded flange drain meant for liquid membranes. Is the laticrete one really the only option?

Yes, looks like a "knock off" or, another option at this point. Don't know how to tell if it's certified. They have the full shower kits and such with sheet membrane. Looks like a Canadian company,...

I'm leaning more towards taking out the tub and converting to a shower stall. Don't seem to be any liquid membrane stopper drains anyway, other than custom built units.

So I think it's settled...
