    After using TE board for dot and dabbing my walls, I am about to start the filling process.

    Readymixed filler is the way I'm thinking of going, unless anyone can convince me otherwise.

    However, how far will a 10kg tub go? How many long joints can I expect it to cover?

    Additionally, there are lots of good posts here already with hints and tips, but I couldn't find out how I "lose" the tape in the non valley joints. eg where the wall meets the ceiling, or where metal beading meets the boards at edges- how do I end up without a bump?

    You will have to feather it out. I would use easi fill as it sounds down perfect, dont know about any other products as ive not used them, but any gyproc joint filler is what i would use.

    try this a 25 kilo bag cost £11 my local dealer lets me have it for £10 a bag cash, during a quite spell last year m8 m8 whos a tape and joint contractor (machine tape and jointing) took me out with him to show me how he does things, they would use 2 coats filler 1 coat joint cement, and if asked would give the boards a topcoat the prices they were getting was £1.75 a m2 tape and jointing, 25p a m2 top coat or if on day rate it would be £125, i would much rather use this stuff and @ £10 a bag for 25 kilos its a lot cheaper than easifill as well http://www.wondertex.co.uk/drywall_finishing_systems.html
