Did you use anything to waterproof the concrete? Very nice work Grant.
We used e a two part waterproofing system for the walls. Under the concrete surface we first coat the cement backer board with Laticrete HydroBan. This is a troweled on waterproofing and crack isolation barrier. Every surface in the shower except the ceiling is coated (including the floor, the waterproofing is seamless from the top of the walls to the drain). Corners and seams were taped with fiber mesh and pressed into the liquid membrane then over coated for extra durability.
Over the cement (after it has cured) we brushed on 2 coats of Arizona Polymer Flooring Poly 100. This is some crazy durable stuff that is immune to most chemicals (one listed use is aircraft hanger floors). Were afraid typical bathroom cleaner used for hard water and soap removal would damage the cement and wear through traditional finishes. The stuff is obnoxious to use, but is crazy durable.
Looks F'N awesome! I'm currently about to start a slab on grade curbless shower in my basement. Linear drain poured in place with tru pac and light texture on the walls.
A few questions,
Did you use spiderlath after Hydroban for walls?
Sealer on walls?
Any advice for slab on grade application? Not much info out there for vertical mixes to slab on grade for showers.
