Waterproofing my shower walls before tiling

I am tearing out my bath & shower combo and replacing it with a shower only. I would like to know if I use a fiberglass board would I have to use a sheet membrane also? Or, would using just the cement backerboard, and tile be enough? I was planning on using the cement backerboard then the Schluter System wall membrane, but some tilers at the home depot store told me not to do that, I want to make sure I don't have any water leaks in the future. Also where in Houston, Texas can I find fiberglass board?

if you are ripping out your walls and shower floor and redoing you can use Kerdi on the wall and floor. you can use drywall on the shower walls and do a mudbed on the shower floor.

using drywall behind the Schluter Kerdi is acceptable since when done right it will never see water.
