I agree with Lou, a surface membrane works best in this situation. The tub deck on the right side needs to be waterproof with a pitch.

Hi Davey,

Thanks so much for your reply. Can you explain exactly how I would do that? Would you make the pitch out of concrete and waterproof over the top?

If you're asking about pitching the tub deck, that is usually done when fraiming. A suitable patching compound that can be used over your substrate could be used to create a slope as well I suppose. Then a waterproof membrane would be installed.

I would likely notch the short studs on the tub face so the liner will set back in the notched area. Then use CBU on the tub face to the floor overlapping the liner. Get your pitch on the tub deck and cover it with a surface membrane, all the way down to the shower floor. Extra care should be taken to get a good seal against the tub.

Cut outs

Good morning! I’m back for more help from all of you knowledgeable people 😊
After a lot of Googling, I can’t find much to help me, or I can’t understand it.

1. I’m about to apply Redguard to the walls, but how do I seal the cutouts like this one?

2. Also I’m unclear on the best way to seal the gaps around the Jacuzzi tub. Before or after I Redguard?

3. One last question - thoughts on a 6x18 ceramic tile in a shower?

As usual, I appreciate all the advice 😊

Amanda

Hi Amanda, just recently I uploaded a couple of photos that address your first question. You can find them in post #26 here.

The top photo is what would work for your situation.
