    Should I PVA the plasterboard before I tile onto it?

    NO

    You can tile straight onto the plasterboard. However in this hot weather a suitable primer will give you an extended working time as it helps prevent the water in the adhesive being drawn into the board.

    Each adhesive manufacturer has there own reccommended primer, ie BAL have APD which is what I tend to use.

    What about blue hawk board primer. Is this any good? Will it do the same job as the BAL stuff. It's only a pipe box not a full wall.

    If its only a boxing then tile straight onto it, just don't spread too much adhesive out in one go.
