Aqua Panel brick wall

    Just a bit of advice please...Ive converted a bathroom back to a box room intending to use as an office. The bath when removed had leaked for at least 7 years I reckon (when we moved in) but didn't realise as access was impossible as the bath was tiled all around. My question is; the cement has been removed off the wall back to brick where the bath was due to water & damp damage. I intend plaster boarding the wall all over (H=8ft W=6ft) the wall and was hoping to use 6mm aqua panel up to the good cement which i removed (or fell off) This is up the wall about 3ft up on a 6ft wide wall. I am tanking the wall as well.
    Should I tank after fitting the aqua panel & plasterboard and what is the best method to fix the aqua panel, Screws or Dob & Dab?
    Cheers, A Novice.

    Why are you tanking and using aqua panel if you're going from a bathroom to a living room?
    Strip it out. Let it dry out if necessary.
    Dot 'n' dab.

    Hi, thanx for the reply. The wall was very damp (due to inside water damage) and it is stripped right back to brick 3ft up. I'm only using aqua panel to bridge the gap between the brick and cement trying to avoid stripping the whole wall as the rest is in pretty good condition and then plasterboard all over......im tanking because when I stripped the wall back there are tanking holes all along at the base (empty) and thought it would help any possible future damp.....Its going to be used as a small office room.

    Tanking holes? Do you mean injection holes for liquid DPM ?

    Told you i was a novice, The walls have the drilled holes which I assume in the past had been damp proofed. I'm intending inserting Dryrod Damproofing Rods.....I am assuming this as the holes are drill in the bricks rather the mortar or am I wrong?

    The holes that I mention are the whole length of the wall 1 brick up from the floor and each brick has been drilled with two holes in each brick?
