I am in the process of fitting a wet room in my bathroom. I have the aquadec down and the walls have been fitted with backerbaord. I bought the wet room kit from Impey but I have some doubts about the suitability of the bitumen type membrane. Basically, will it support travertine tiles which are pretty damned heavy?

A post in the plumbing forum suggested this type of membrane is not suitable and recommended the Homelux type polythene membrane available at Topps. Strangely enough Topps have got travertine tiles in the wetroom literature but the technical sheet for Homelux show that the max load is 20kg/m2.

Can anyone help me with this one. I want to make sure I do this right!

Thanks.

Schluter Kerdi doesn't reduce the weight limit of the substrate...

Cheers Bathstyle! It seems a bit clearer as to what is needed - I just wonder whether I can use the bitumen stuff on the floor and the SK/Homelux on the walls..... I will call Impey to discuss this further.
