    Hi

    Started tiling and the walls in some areas are really out. I'm guessing that fixing aquapanel at 12.5mm will help as I'm not going to be packing out adhesive to the thickness in the pics.

    Too late for replastering as the bath is in and the walls are tanked.

    I plan to attach a sheet on the top half of the wall then tile as normal, question is how to attach the sheet safely to hold the rest of the tiles. I won't dot and dab for safety reasons so wall plugs and long screws? Also grab adhesive to hold it on tight?

    Thanks

    I'd tile the Aquapanel onto the wall with tiling adhesive - same stuff your using for the tiling.

    You could mechanically fix it as well if you wanted to make sure it didn't move while the tile adhesive set.
