Kerdi Water Membrane
TEG1957

Hi - I installed a the Schluter Kerdi wall membrane around my tub surround area and after it dried a few days, I noticed that I have an air pocket about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long. Does anyone know if I should open this up with an razor blade and then use thin set to seal it and then cover with another layer of Kerdi membrane on top?

If the tile you're using is fairly large, I'd be tempted to leave it; but if you have to fix it, that's the way. Or use kerdi tape; I think it's a little thinner than the sheets. You may also be able to slit it and use the kerdi-fix (sealant) under and over the slit and forgo the thinset, but I'm not certain.
