NobleSeal and Kerdi are not the same, but they are similar surface applied sheet waterproofing membranes. Installation methods are different, seaming is also different.

Which is least expensive for YOU depends on where you get each and your specific location. For that, you'll need to make the calls and pencil it out.

I will probably stay with Kerdi. Also what do you think about Fundo Floor Bases?

I think they can be cut to size.

If you're talking about the foam bases, I don't use em. Sand & cement is just too easy and inexpensive. If using one of these, is the existing drain line stubbed up in the right place?

The foam bases are ideal for, and more suited to non-residential projects where the plumbing & showers are designed around one of those pre-fabbed bases. Like hotels and similar.

I just spoke to a salesman in my area from Wedi,and he climes that his system is better then Kerdi[what else is he going to say]. The only thing i like about Wedi is the fact that the walls can be installed directly onto the studs. I don't like there drain system which relies on a rubber gasket. I would like to use there pan with the Kerdi drain and Kerdi over sheetrock because i think that the Wedi panels are probably very expensive.I don't know if the Kerdi drain will fit over the Wedi pan.

I don't recommend mixing materials, methods and systems. Too easy to mess up and you're basically creating an untested system.

I do recommend picking one manufacturers system, following all their installation instructions and being successful first time. Wedi, Noble, HydroBan, RedGard, Kerdi, etc....... lot's of good, proven and tested choices.

I presume this is the same shower but you've now given up on the TileRedi pan, Phil, so I've combined the thread again. We can give it a more generic title whenever you're ready to give us one.

We'd always prefer to keep the project on one thread, Phil. Too much history is lost otherwise. It can be helpful for the folks trying to help to know even that you've considered and abandoned a number of other options before arriving at what you intend to use.

If you'll give it a generic title and just stay with it, folks will find it very easy to keep up with what you're working on. It'll still rise to the top of the queue with each new post and folks will recognize it.

It really does help.
