"Used this to waterproof a shower. It was cheaper using this kit to normal plasterboard than using hardiebacker boards. Well enough in the kit. Would have liked a bit more tape as i needed to do three walls in a walk in shower. Got around half a tub of the paint on stuff after two good coats. Time will tell how good it is but looks like it will work perfect."
"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."
"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..."
"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..."
"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."
"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."
"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"
"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!"
"First time using a tanking kit, an absolute doddle to use. Read the brochure, watched the video on youtube, then used the kit, it really is that simple. Cheaper than other brands, simple & easy to use, does the job, what`s not to like."
"Good to use. The quantity of primer was on the low side for the area quoted, The plaster has already been painted and was exceptionally absorbent. I suspect it is a PVA type solution and there was plenty of space in the container for more. The coating itself went on well with a brush - using a mini-roller was much inferior. The final coating adheres well and is tough. Unlike the primer, the quantity of waterproofing was sufficient for the area quoted. I expect it will provide the necessary waterproofing but only time will tell. I would use it again."
