Looked all around for this but can't seen a definitive answer.
How do I completely seal the join between the wall and the bath when I have a (pumped) shower over the bath?
I'm installing a new bathroom suite with a shower over a bath. To be absolutely certain of making it watertight I'm using a paint-on membrane on the walls and taping the vertical corner joints (nicobond system left over from a wet-room project). The tape has a rubber centre section with mesh on either side to bond into the paint-on membrane. The wet-room was also taped along the horizontal wall/floor joint before tiling. So in my bathroom:
Do I tape from the wall onto the edge of the bath - and if so How?
Or do I just membrane the wall and then silicone seal the bath to the wall.
Also, I know you should only silicone seal shower screens on on the outside, so the water can't get trapped behind the screen frame. Surely the same applies to the bath. If you silicone seal the bath to the wall, and then tile down to the bath seal between the tiles and the bath, you're creating a pocket for any seepage to fester inside.
