Water proofing a fountain

I have done some fountains but always for a GC and they would ask for Redgard. This one there is no GC so I can use what I want. What have you guys used to water proof fountains. Here are some pics of the fountain just to give you guy a idea of what I got my self in to . I'm going to grind the old water proofing off and replace it. The pencil marks are just to give the H.O. a visual. I have been putting off getting a ring saw but for this one I think I will get one to cut around the 7 turtles they what in the floor.

this is one I would use a trowel applied mem..both above mentioned are great.. I have used loads of Ultraset for stuff like this too..It's messy but it sticks to anything and it works..U.V used to be a concern so you might see if that's still the case.

Once you cover it with tile, is UV an issue? Then use a roofing product-

When I use redgard the rep told me to cover it when I leave for the day so the UV does not hit it. But when the it is tiled and grouted no problem with UV

I'll stick with the two Laticrete products, and my preference is for the 9235 only because of the fabric reinforcement. I know they say that the Hydroban's strong enough that it's not needed, but as long as I have the choice, I'd rather use it.

vote for hydroban here. when dry, it'll leave you a nice green inside the fountain, not red or black. plus i just think it's the best of all 3. personal opinion.

My laticrete rep told my hrydroban is supposed to be the equivalent of 9235 but no mesh so its easier to use, I have a 1 gallon complementary pail to try just have been busy with kerdi and mud to play with it.

yeah, they say no mesh needed, but still say its always a good idea to use something for the changes of plane, inside corners etc. I've been using it damn near everywhere. Getting a decent price buying it 5gal at a time.

Hydroban and fabric

Hey guys,

Just for the record, Hydroban states it'll bridge 1/8" gaps or less without the need for fabric. Any gaps >1/8" should be filled, not bridged by a fabric/waterproofing combination.

That last part also holds true for 9235. You won't find anywhere that Laticrete recommends bridging gaps >1/8" with its waterproofing products. Preferably, pack in some thinset or grout to allow the membrane to stick to.

For Alex's fountain job, I actually like the HBan a little more-- it'll bond directly to the PVC drain and can be flood tested in 24 hours (new version rolling out this year will allow for FT in as little as 2 hours), limiting the amount of time the membrane is left exposed. Use of fabric is optional-- your preference.

Hey Brian, how much does one of them 5gal pails of hydroban weigh? I was on a job a while back where we used 36 of them buggers and I had to unload the truck by hand one at a time. By the end I swore they had to be 100 pounds.

Hey Brian--

Nice to see you in here!

I know the Hydroban has been tested and is supposed to be strong enough. it's just tough to get past the no reinforcement part of it. I guess it's an old dog/ new tricks sort of thing. Do me a favor-- Don't discontinue the 9235 until after I retire!
