    Yeah I’m a bit anal when it comes to tanking.. mainly because I deal with leaks all the time in bathrooms so I like to make sure my work is leak free..

    Lol I’ll post pics as I go.. unless I really balls it up :confused: haha

    When trowling the other boards, you think a 6mm is too small? Would you go with 8mm?

    Last bit of tanking done after putting in another 30 toggle screws that can take 50kg each on a downward pull!! Next: scrape and clean the tray, membrane installation and then setting out ready for slapping on those bad boys! Been here since 7am

    Last night I nearly mentioned about spring toggles having a bolt instead of a screw which means the screws aren’t countersunk into the washer. I see you’ve found that out.

    Haha yes.. it sticks out by about 3-4mm which should fit within the adhesive as I’m using a 10mm trowel for those big tiles and back buttering the tiles as well. Unless you think I need to do something different? Bas**** builders stacked 3 plasterboards on top of each other so had to go get longer m6 screws to fit the toggles on the wall the shower is on :mad:

    I take it you're laying a waterproof membrane over the former?
