    Hi,

    Still getting my head around the whole plasterboard/tanking vs backer boards in a shower area.

    Basically I have one wall that is already plasterboarded and skimmed, the other wall adjoining this is for me to build over some pipes to box them in. This is the corner where our shower is going.

    I am still confused as whether to use plasterboard or ply for the boxing in, given that the already existing wall is plasterboard and then tank the whole area?

    The alternative is to use no-more ply for the boxing in but this would still leave me with a plasterboard wall that would require tanking? I have read that backer boards need breathing space and if I were to put these on the existing wall I would need to batten it out, or could I screw the backer board directly to the plasterboard?

    Sorry for the questions!!

    Thanks!
