LATICRETE Hydro Ban- Shower Floor ?

I am going to try the new LATICRETE Hydro Ban in my shower area on the wals .. My question is ??? Can I do the floor also ????

I had to mud the floor in . Did the normal first layer to establish the pitch to the drain , placed the liner down, did the second layer of mud( concrete ) and that has been done for a week or so now ..

Can I put the Laticrete over the finished concrete floor also ??
May be a stupid question to many, but I was not sure if this will mess up the way this system works with the weep holes and all ???? I would think more protection is better , but ???

Hope someonce can provide input ASAP - I am due to start in 1 hour !!!!

Thanks again to all.
Bob

no Bob,
if you did the traditional preslope with a liner and used a clamping ring drain you don't need anything on top.

you wouldn't be able to tie into the drain with the HydroBan and water will possible get in there and you have a moisture sandwich, could get nasty in there.

Hi Bob,

There is a detail(or there used to be) at the Laticrete site covering how to slope the mud bed such that the liquid membrane can be adapted to the slamping drain, but if you already floated the mud bed for the shower floor it is too late to do anything about it.

Ceramictec, Yes it is the normal preslope with the clamping drain ..
Ok so do not paint the floor with the Hydro Ban - Just the walls ..

Also the reason I am doing this is because I did not place any moisture barrier behind the Durock when putting it up , so I am trying the Hrdro Ban on the walls :-)

using the HydroBan on the walls is fine Bob.
it's really good stuff, make sure you get the proper MIL thickness for your final coat.

It all went well, awesome stuff . Easy to work with ..
2 coats went fast , Durock dried it up real quck the first coat.

I did about a 1 inch overhang onto the floor...

On a side note, the shower floor has a few divits because of my inexperience mudding. should I do a skim coat of thinset prior to tiling? -- Looks like the pot holes down the city streets of Chicago on my shower floor - LOL

Many thanks to those that replied to me .. MUCH APRECIATED

use a wide flat trowel with some thinset and skim across the low divots.
this will fill the holes while not filling the higher area.
