Dont forget your receipt.
Get yourself over to www.trades-direct.co.uk,and go on the forum which is linked from the the home page, they specialise in tiling.
I'm asking a similar question about an en-suite, you will get good "serious" advice on what to use and how to use it.
You might even want to call the training school, I did, and spoke to Paul Riley a consumate proffesional who told me everything I needed to know,but you'll get everything from the forum.
In return, I'm buying all my products from him directly, much cheaper than the usual suppliers
cheers for that jed, im just off for a look now!
painted my wp1 undercoat 5 minutes ago havin an early nite so will latex tommorow!
ok she is all tanked now!
sure is weird stuff to work with! tape was fiddly but all went well

how long for the adesive to dry? i understand the WP1 will slow this down

Take a look at the following thread to see how it's
Aquapanel has been used instead of Hardibacker,
According to that thread:
"Just for information, WP1 tanking system doesn't reduce the weight capability of what you can hang except on Aquapanle....the WP1 system is rated up to 32kg/sq/m so you can hang 10mm thick stone on it comfortably, but nothing more than that.
Aquapanel will hold 50 kg/sqm but this is reduced to 32kg once it's tanked."
So you shouldn't tank if you're using Aquapanel with tiles thicker than 10mm?
In theory yes, or use an alternative system.
Just make sure you don't go over the weight limits.
12mm Travertine is around 36 kg/m2 - or thereabouts.
