Hi, I plan to tile my shower next weekend and I am a little confused by which adhesive to use - I have a large format tile 300x600mm and the adhesive needs to be waterproof, I was looking at the dunlop range but dont know which one to get or indeed where to buy it from?

The tiles are cermic/porcelin the substrate is aquapanel (not tanked)

Also what is the best white grout to use for this application?

Is the ready mixed adhesive anygood?

Just a few suggestions about peoples adhesive preferences would be great ie which one they use on a regular basis.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Use a powdered flexi 1 part adhesive

Also what is the best white grout to use for this application?
A powdered flexi grout dependant on joint sizes

Is the ready mixed adhesive anygood?
Not for this particular application but ok for smaller tiles

I originally used granfix products,I still use their grouts but now use tilechoice own brand which is made by benfer.
Have used bal a few tiles but costs a bit,is a quaility product though ;)

I am just about to have my bathroom tiled. Of the 3 tilers giving me prices, all said they would use BAL Whitestar in the shower area.
