Right. I can not seem to find an answer for this question anywhere.

I’m looking to replace the bathroom. I am assuming the plaster will be in the same condition as the rest of the house and come off in large pieces back to brick when I remove the tiles.

The problem is as follows.

My bathroom is only wide enough to acomadate a 1700mm bath (only just)

I will need to install some form of water proof board, aqua panel or what ever.

Studding the wall is not an option due to space restrictions. The walls are no where near straight enough to use tube based adhesives to adhere the boards straight to the brick as recommended by knauf.

I understand dot and dabbing is a absolutely no no from what I have read. But this would be the most logical solution to build up the gap as it would be mechanicaly fixed with knauf’s ceramic screws anyway.

What am I missing here ?

The gaps I would be packing would be no bigger than 25mm max. To large for tube based adesives but not enough to warent batoning the wall.

Providing I mechanicaly fix where I have applied the dabs and at the recommended distances what is the problem dot and dabing the boards to the wall to make up for the poor brick work?

I will be using aqua seal to avoid moisture making its way behind the aqua panel and thus degrading the dab compound.

Any thoughts. This one has stumped me
