Will using HYDROBAN on the floor create mold sandwich?

LSDchicOctober 27, 2013

Can I use hydroban on the shower floor that has PVC liner installed below mud deck?

Will it create mold sandwich?

ps. I have normal drain not a specialized topical drain.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

With a 2-part clamping drain, you'd need to carve out a "divot" of mud around the drain so the hydroban can go under the drain's weepholes.

Called "the divot method". I just posted about this on another thread.
