Brian and Lauren's new Master Shower

Well finally getting around to start on the shower for our new house that is under construction. The CBU (Permabase) is installed already by the drywall contractor and the floor has plastic sheeting down underneath the hydronic radiant heat we have installed through out the house.

I am planning on a drypack mud bed having done this in my previous house.

I am also planning on using a surface applied waterproofing. I have the Schluter drains.

What I am thinking is Kerdi on the floor and either Hydro Barrier or Hydroban on the walls. I used kerdi in my last shower and was not happy with the build up hence wanting to use the liquid on at least the walls if not the floors.

What is the pro's take on this method and which liquid would you use. There is only a few cents a SF price difference between the two where I am looking to purchase the liquid. I am definitely sticking with Laticrete products after seeing all of the support and dedication behind their products.

Thanks,

if your not happy with Kerdi just use the Hydro Barrier or HydroBan on the walls and floor and use a Kerdi drain. this will help eliminate you needing to do a divot method which is time consuming to say the least. the difference you pay extra for the Kerdi drain
makes up for it in the day you save.

Any preference on Hydro Barrier or Hydroban? I was planning on using the fabric with either choice.

I do lots of showers with the kerdi drain and hydroban or other liquids. I prefer that method if I have time to wait the 3 day cure time on the deck mud (muy importante).

I haven't used hydrobarrier yet but will next week.
