" Second time I have used this excellent product, easy to apply sticks well to the plaster board ( I used moisture resistant board) a good surface to tile onto. Watch the video, follow the instructions and you should have no problems. "

Easy to use
9 May 2015
By Marc288
, Yeovil
" I only needed mapegum, which was difficult to get hold of quickly on its own. I used waterproof foam board for the wall, which has its own tape system, so didn't use tape that came with product for that. I wanted a belt and braces approach and Mapegum is excellent for waterproofing. Very easy to apply with a brush and goes a long way. I was only going to do the seams and the screw holes but managed to do all of the wall along the bath. Still have a bit left! Used the tape for waterproofing the wall to the floor without a problem. Didn't have to use the primer... so if someone wants some... "

Shower tanking...
12 Mar 2015
By Char1y
, Durham
" I wish I discovered this stuff before I bought an expensive shower tray and enclosure, because I would have gone for a wet room instead...
The kit is a little on the expensive side and there are cheaper brands out there, which do exactly the same job. But being a tiler I'm familiar with 'Mapie' products. So essentially its the name I paid for...
Maybe its like comparing a nike trainer to a hitech trainer.
Ive not finished installing the shower yet. So I can't tell you how good it is. However it's definately worth tanking first. I've seen one too many bad examples of people just sticking tiles around a shower tray and blaming leaks on the sealant later...
It's probably easier to apply the magnisium paste with a full size roller, as I used a 4" roller first and it went on a bit too thin. So I'll be giving it 3 coats... "

Mapei Shower Waterproofing Kit
22 Nov 2014
By Audiguypaul
, Wilts
" I've just used this to tank 3 sides of a 760 x 2300mm shower cubicle in a small en-suite, . It's the first time i've used it and found it fairly easy to use after reading the instructions and watching the video.
There was plenty of the tape and i've got about 1/3 left which i'll keep for later. My only small gripe is the price, it's a bit steep but after suffering with leaking showers in the past and seeing the damage it can cause then it makes the cost a little less painful. Overall worth it for the peace of mind and i'll be using it again on my other shower and bath in the near future.

good item but should be @ £25
9 May 2014
By Rizo
, Croydon
" This is a good item to use but it should be sold at around £25 and not for £60. It is simply some sealent with a membrane and membrane tape. The product works well (I think). I used it to tank the walls before tiling on top and installing the shower cabinet. No leaks from anywhere so far but it's only been 2 weeks. I have trust in the product that it will do what it says. Mapei does good products all round. "

Great product
15 Jan 2014
By TheBassman
, Molesey
" I used this to fix an ongoing issue with a leaky shower cubicle, the tiles had been fitted without any sort of membrane and the damp was going through the wall. I stripped off the tiles until I had uncovered the damp area, I let this dry and then used this kit, for the corners I used 2 pieces of tape then loads of the membrane liquid, it has been 6 months now and no repeat of the damp issue. I had enough left for a friend to do his shower as well "

Fantastic product!
20 Oct 2013
By housefixer

" I was initially sceptical about using this product largely due to its cost. I used it to line all 3 walls around a bath into which I had fitted a shower. These are notorious for leaking so in reality, I decided to use this is desperation and followed the user instructions meticulously. I can now confirm 2 years later, that there is no evidence of a leak either on the ceiling below or directly under the bath. It's worth every penny and would thoroughly recommend it. "

" Used this to tank the walls to install shower enclosure in bathroom. Complete novices to shower installation DIY we used this to make sure that the enclosure is fully waterproofed. It's easy to use, good value for money and fully recommended. So far so good, no leakage around the shower tray! "

A good buy
2 Aug 2012
By northernmonkey
, manchester
" A good quality tanking/waterproofing product and super value at the trade price.
Found the manufacturers stated 1.5kg/m2 to be more accurate than previous reviews, to acheive the recommended 1-2mm thickness. The 5kg MAPEGUM in the kit covers 3.3m2.
Only time will tell as to its reliabilty. "

Doing it right
7 Jan 2012
By HillClimb
, Bucks
" Just used this kit to tank the walls of my new shower (a 1500mm by 800mm wall-in with a tray). So had 3 walls to waterproof, totalling 7.5sq meters. The primer (which is about the worst smelling product I have ever used - bad eggs) was enough for 2 coats, had tape left over and plenty of the main mapegum tanking liquid membrane. Its a bit of the challange to not get wrinkles in the tape in internal corners if they are less than perfectly square. But applying the gum is very easy, dries quickly, is easy to clean and looks like a good surface to tile on. As a leading tile adhesive/grout manufacturer, I'd hope Mapei know what they doing with this tanking product and the Screwfix price makes this the best value tanking product from a premier league manufacturer.
