A slipper tub? You might want some peel and stick 3m grip tape so you don't fall.

All kidding aside, does this tub have a freestanding showerhead, and a hanging curtain?

The product is redguard, and it is a paint on waterproofing membrane, good stuff. Not a bad idea to do the floor and whatever walls are close to the tub, in the "splash zone". While redguard is not approved for over sheetrock (only cementboard), your walls are technically not a wet area, but realistically they are.

Not sure that it wouldn't be a good idea to take down a section fo sheetrock and put up a piece of cementboard or two, small price to pay for long term peace of mind and optimal performance of your install.
