Hyrdro Ban Question

I just found this product and am wondering what anyone that has used it thinks of it? I currently use the Kerdi system and if Hydro ban works it looks like it could be a real time saver? Also am i correct in assuming that you dont need a floor membrane with Hydro?
Thanks
Greg

I'm in the same boat on another project.

I will probably do CBU and Hydro. The only issue AFAIK is making sure you are getting good thickness, especially in the corners.

Availibilty as well. Lotsa Lati and Mapei dealers I can go to.
Kerdi....is a whole special order deal.

Hydroban does not require fabric reinforcement, but I think it's still a good idea.

Is the fabric comment a ~universal~ approach for all liquid membranes.

Chatting it with the Mapei dealer and he it a point that their Mapei version was cheaper and required no fabric

It is for me. Read the fine print. All such joints must be tight to within 1/8". Sounds easy, but say you had a 1/8" gap and you then had some movement. You are relying on a field-applied film to follow that movement for the life of your home. And you have no way of observing the joint until leaks occured. I'm trusting, but not that trusting.

Just don't keep going over the same spot or it will start to peel away from the surface.

I use Hydro Ban for all my seams with fabric.

you dont need the fabric in the corners. I used Hydrobarrier a lot and use the
corner fabric, so I naturally use it in the Hydroban corners.

I dont think your speed up anything. one gives and one takes.

with HydroBan or any other liquid you need to wait for your pan to dry out before coating.
Kerdi is a little slower but you can cover your fresh mud with it and tile.
I can Kerdi a shower faster then I can do 2 coats of liquid. I save money using a liquid.
so is it worth my extra labor ?
