Heres the question: How do you waterproofthe walls in a Schluter shower installation? Well, in todays videothis is part 2of 3were going to show you how to waterproof the drywall in the shower sphere expending SchluterKERDI.Now remember, Schluter does recommend utilizing drywall in this instance because we are, afterall, going to be waterproofing all three walls expending the KERDI membrane. Now if you missedpart 1, we demo you how to actually cut down the shower go, the curtail, install theshower niche in the region of the shower, and we got amazing ensues with the showersystem. The shower that we ended up with gazes awesome. But a big one of the purposes of that is installingthe KERDI membrane the right way, and were going to show you how to do that right now.Were going to install all the KERDI membrane and the whole Schluter system and tiling forthat matter with Schluters ALLSET.The ALLSET can be used on all phases of thisinstallation, so you dont have to worry about coming different types of thinset forthe installation. So were just going to go with the ALLSET. Im going to mix afull bag. I probably wont need this is something that, but Im likewise doing DITRA heat membrane onthe outside the shower, and Im going to use this as well. If you desegregate this properly, make sure you pay attention to the instructions on mingling this and with the liberty quantityof spray. So the sea capacities here is 5 to 6 quarts. To install this KERDImembrane and everything, were going to want to have it as rain as is practicable. So weregoing to go with the 6 quarts of sea. And make sure that you measure that out.BasicallyI just got a little bucket with some commemorates on it. This is a 4 quart pail. Add somewater for that. Make sure youre up to your level line on there. So thats 4 quarts.And then well exit 2 quarts. Thats 2. So 6 quarts per suitcase, and you haveto mix it for five minutes. Put it on a timer; well start desegregating for 5 minutes. Its truly, really important to mingle the Schluter ALLSET for that five minutes. You wantit at the freedom rpms, you want to use the right amount of spray and a great mixer. Andthats going to get you the smooth, creamy firmnes that you need. So again, do theinitial concoction for five minutes to get that milky texture.Well let it slake for 10 instants and then mix again.So after this slake for 10 minutes, we start to mix it for another three. Right, so then after telling it slake, wemix it again for another 3 minutes per the directions.So Im just going to applied a level line over where my first sheets going to start justto make sure Im not overhanging it, and Im not will be necessary to do more drive finishingthis drywall. So its delightful time to have a nice, little level line.So the first step is just take a damp sponge and mop down your drywall. Really get any dustor any extra pieces off of it. And its too the same as applying thinset to anything.You kind of want to dampen the surface so its not sucking the humidity out of thethinset immediately. So we are only have our KERDI trowel, and youwant to time succeed this into the surface like any mortar installation as well.Using the flat back of the trowel facilitates get the thinset on the wall.This is the initialphase of applying thinset to the drywall, and well get plenty of thinset on it usingthe notch back. Okay, so now you just want to time trowelmore thinset. As “youre seeing”, Steve is applying more thinset with the notched side of thetrowel, all of the notches facing in the same direction, so in this case downward. You cansee just how much thinset were applying to the drywall. This is super important forproper coverage underneath the KERDI membrane. So again, make sure you apply bountiful amountsof thinset to the drywall, burning that thinset in with the flat side of the trowel reallyhelps out with this, and exploiting your second hair consuming the notched place. So again, youdefinitely want to be using the KERDI trowel or the notched size trowel that Steve recommendedat the opening up of the video for this. So consuming the KERDI trowel is super importantfor that coverage as well. So now Im going to have your whole rollprecut. You dont have to fool around with chipping it while youre installing it.Tryto get this over to your level line. Just use the flat one of the purposes of the trowel. I didntget enough on this place. Make sure I have my totality side replenished in here.After plant the KERDI membrane onto the drywall, its really important to removeany of the aura suds that are underneath it. So there is a specific method to this.So Steve is starting out at the ceiling, removing any of the aura foams there. And werealso going to remove the thinset from that drywall in a little bit now, but youreremoving in a oblique direction to eliminate the aura gaps.I find it easier to various kinds of go oblique to push all this air out if you have any air in here.Basically just going from one slope to the other, so you dont net any air.Okay, so now its not a bad project to pull this off and just see the amount of coverageyou have.I precisely need to push it in this area a little bit more.You want to make sure that the thinsets grabbing onto the fleece well. A little bitin that corner here. Im going to wipe off the rest of my drywall and any thinset thatI got on it. All right , now well more onto the next sheet.So again, wipe down the neighbourhood when youre positioning it.So after wetting down the wall with a soften rinse, you can apply thinset to this mainwall and the remaining portion of that back wall. Again, its really important to burnthe thinset into the drywall with the flat back of the trowel and then use the notchedside to apply more thinset. Overlap is 2 inches, so make sure that youthinset to each piece together here. And like I said, its a minimum of 2 inches. If yougo over it, thats penalty. You time dont want to go under that extent. Like I said, if you overlap the expanses like this, at the full membrane, and you dont have to use theKERDI Band in the corner, you can precisely this 2inch lap is all you need so you donthave to mess around with an additional corner tape.Okay, so basically you merely line this up with your other membrane here.So Im just goingto use a regular drywall knife to cut this into the corner and apparently being carefulnot to imbue sheath, but I want to have this angle all delightful and tighten it is therefore easieraround my tile office. Okay, and then I would simply embed one area before you go and tryto feather out the other side really to make sure that this is all even with no aura bubbles.Getting the twoinch overlap is most important. As you can see here, Steve is removing anyof the air gaps squandering both the KERDI trowel and that drywall spear that hes holdingin his hands. Okay, and then once you have that place embedded, you can go ahead and embed this other side. Like I said, rather than try to push thisall in and propagandize a whole bunch of aura into this sheet, youre better off at kind ofgoing at a diagonal from one feature to the other.Because once you propagandize this area in, then youregoing to trap all that air in there. So merely act from the reces over.So you do have some result action on the bottom now because were going to have the panand then were going to have our KERDIBand above now. So like right here, Im an inchshort of the storey; thats not going to affect anything, so you dont have to be1 00% tighten to the floor. It only has to be able to be covered by two inches above thiswhen you situated the go down. So we got like an inch and a half on the pan thickness. Soas long as youre within two inches of the storey, truly, youre pretty good. But Illtry to make it as close-fisted as you are eligible to. Theres no problem in being a little bit short-lived onthat.So Im just going to clean it down. I justlike to wipe this down. You dont have to do this; you can just leave it like that.So again, moderated the drywall with your sponge; doesnt have to be a plentiful quantity of water, just enough to dampen it so that you can then apply the thinset over top of it. So again, were burning the thinset with the flat place. And then expending the notch slope and gettingour twoinch overlap with your other KERDI thats previously on the wall.So I aimed up feathering this whole side of the niche as well because what I want to dois Im going to cut this KERDI so this sleeves into the niche. So the same rule exercises, you precisely need to have two inches of overlap on any seam.And since this niche is alreadywaterproof, Im just going to bring that corner all the way into the corner of theniche so then this whole wall is flush. So again, starting at the ceiling actually helpsout with this process whenever youre overlapping the two inches on the right here and overlappinginto the corner. So Im only going to push one side in andwork my road from the top because I dont want to trap a whole assortment of breeze into thatcorner because that can be kind of difficult to get out of the corner.Using a sixinch seam deepen bayonet genuinely facilitates out a ton. That, together with the KERDItrowel, are basically the only two tools you need to flatten out the KERDI thats overtop the drywall. So again, were is moving forward a oblique direction to do that. Wereembedding the KERDI in the corner and removing all of those breeze chinks. Again, we cant stresshow important this is because if youve got an air gap, thats what your tile isgoing to be set over.So you dont want any air gaps. You require the KERDI to be niceand flat over top the drywall. Again, thats also why you dont want to finish the drywallwith any joint complex slime. You precisely want it to be plain, age-old drywall over top the studs.So were get our smooth finish here; likewise works out any air illusions at the bottombecause that could interfere with the pan installation as well.Okay, it is therefore still not a bad theory to gather this apart and just see that you have goodcoverage. So there you can see how well thats genuinely covering.Okay, so then at this reces now, were going to cut out a part of the niche and allowthat tissue to go further into the niche, while being careful that itll trimmed partof the niche out.So just be careful with how youre trimming this. So were justgoing to let that crimp in there. And you have been able fold the reces there if you wanted to, allthe behavior around, but I prefer not to have any buildup at all in that corner. So Id ratherjust cut it off straight. And you got like three inches of room on that back committee, so were surely get that twoinch overlap on that seam.When we go to do the KERDIBand, I would still do a KERDIBand on this region because youcould have this glowing trimmed right here, so you want to make sure that this whole corner iscompletely waterproof. So it would be a good idea to get strip around there. Or you couldKERDIFix it, whatever. I imply, just as long as you get and same with the top cornerhere as well. You dont normally “re going to have to” do that whenyou have it in a wall somewhere because this whole edge is already waterproofed all theway around.But since I cut off that one side of the flange, you just want to make surethat you have that reces flooded well. So get a little bit of okay.Lets get a little thinset on there. Use a damp leech to knock down any of thethinset thats on the wall. Thatll help get your smooth finish over top of the KERDI.Here, were just marking our location where we want to end the KERDI exerting our level.Just going up the wall. Again, having this boundary line facilitates out. And then dampeningthe drywall like we did for the other three walls.And then likewise squandering our flat back ofthe trowel to apply the initial amount of thinset to the drywall. So were keepingin with our way there. We dont actually want to go over the line. And then wereusing our directional troweling to apply the rest of the thinset. Weve got a nice layerof that on this plumbing wall. Then were going to hang the KERDI just like we did onthe other three walls. So this guy, you dont have to worry abouttoo much because were going to have a big flange that croaks around this.So even if itscut kind of wild, youll have plenty of cavity. And around this chap. Of route youtry to cut this as tightly as possible because the flange that comes with Schluter isntnecessarily going to fit, so Im just going along this sheathe lookout. Im just tryingto cut it as tightly as I can. Starting at the ceiling, like we did before.This removes all the gaps and then you can move downward, and in that oblique directionto wring out any of the aura gaps thats behind the KERDI. So this plumbing wall isreally important because number one: this is where a lot of sea is going to smacked thetile wall, so you demand this to be nice and right. And so were just removing any ofthe KERDI around that mixing valve so that we can get a nice, tighten fit and flat KERDIover top the drywall. So I was necessary to make sure I have enough in thisflange. Kind of overhanging by three inches on this back, so thats great.As you can see here, Steve is pulling the KERDI taut with his left hand and then smoothingit out with his right.Thats kind of nice to do at the bottom because that allows youto finish off the application and get a smooth finish.Okay, then well only cut out the niche. And this doesnt required to be folded around, and it can precisely be even with the edge, or leaving a little above. Just be careful notcutting encounter, I exactly actually various kinds of rent out too far over, so Im going to have toput a spot on this area. Try to make sure your blades not chipping into the KERDIBoardbelow it. So just so I dont forget about that, Imgoing to do that now. I find it best to take care of a recognize you screwed up right away oryou might forget about it.So thats as easy as it gets as far as patching it. Theresnothing more hard about that. Now, the KERDIBand is a little bit thinnerthan the rest of the KERDI on the walls, it is therefore does take up a little less, and it doesntbuild out as much. And well build a little bit. And so causes set some on this corneras well. Now, I dont have an extra outside cornerfor this. So Im just going to This is perhaps one of the most importantsections of the shower inside the niche. Its going to get hit with a lot of ocean. So youwant to have that KERDIBand overlap. And exploiting Steves method will help avoid anywater reveals into the stud cavity. So do what he did there with cutting down the KERDIBandand overlapping. And then likewise, we want to mention, its super important to knock downthe thinset and to make it as smooth as is practicable so that it doesnt interfere with the settingof the tile on the shower wall and inside the niche.Its still not a bad sentiment to position a little of KERDIFix now because Im not overlappingthis another two inches.So the weak point still is this slight little angle. But thisis probably waterproof right now. But only to be safe, formerly this dries, Im just goingto articulated like a little dab in that corner. And like I said, the only reason that I neededto do that was because I cut off that line-up board of the niche. So were going to haveto do the same thing up here. Make sure you have the suitable coverage here.So only fold this in this corner. Do this area here again. Overlapping.We did the exact same method on the priorities in the niche. And again, were just using oursponge to knock down any of the thinset and to make it smooth over transcend of the KERDI.So this is the final slouse of KERDI membrane that were putting over top of the drywall; simply a small section.And this completes the plumbing wall.So just recollect to overlap each patch by two inches here.The sixinch joint deepen pierce actually helps out with this small section of KERDI, andwere smoothing out any of the thinset thats behind it. So were maintaining our delightful, flat wall. Again, this is the last section of KERDI on the plumbing wall.Okay, so in the depletion package, itll come with a pipe shut. So thats going to go aroundthe shower head. And then it also comes with a standard fourinch for your valve seal.Now you can see here, this is not going to fit on this vogue valve. So is still not goingto be able to use this around here.So what you want to do is I have to take this coveroff and precisely seal the edge of the drywall around this area with KERDIFix. So, itsnice to use this, but when youre in a circumstance like this where it wont fit, theresnothing you can do. You wont be able to use it.So on this person, its going to go on this pipe, and then you really thinset around it.So well cut some of this excess. As “youre seeing”, were exercising a generousamount of the thinset around the pipe. You really require this valve covering to be embeddedinto the thinset amply. So were just going to slide that over the piping, and were goingto use our sixinch joint compound knife to smooth it out. Again, you want to use a spongeas well to knock down the thinset.
