I would hope it's 7 ... Just read the other day that although it comes at only 1-2% of the total cost of building, issues with waterproofing amount to some 85% of all the major problems !!
So, everything is just fine with the current waterproofing standards How hard would it be to splash some more of the $10-20/litre waterproofing liquid at the "Not Required under the standards" places (remember, tradies' price too!!)

Hey Lex, just so that you know I have been an advocate of correct waterproofing systems for a loooong time.
about 20 years but i can't do every thing on my own.
builders will do as they want.
just my beef tonight.

Gee I hope this works out for you. Who signed off on the waterproofing for the new house? Builders hate taking the responsibility for tradies stuff ups but that what they take out the insurance for.
My builder is reluctant not to use shower bases in my new house and he is trying to get me to change my mind from a walk in shower. Mr Waterproof guy whats the best way to water seal an upstairs walk in shower on a timber floor?

Seems strange, to me a base would be more water proof then a tiled walk in... Did he say what the reason is? You'ld think a solid shower base would be more water proof then tiles with porous grout.

I guess you still could use a shower base as a 'walk in'. Depending on how big you want the shower area. Reece have bases the go us to 1500 x 900 and 1800 x 900 called Posh http://www.reece.com.au/bathrooms/products/2007225and I have found a 900x1500 Showerline basehttp://www.showerline.com.au if you want to put the outlet at the end of the 900 end. Then I guess you could put a single piece of glass running down the side. I did this with my bath room, using a 900 x 1200 base and it looked great! I really should have taken photos of it.
You could also counter sink a base to really give that flush effect, I think they're only 70mm high, so it shouldn't be too much trouble. Has anyone ever tried doing that?
