The best waterproofing advice is
‘Buy the right Materials’. Ask or read the label to see if the product you are purchasing will do the job. Use the same brand of materials wherever you can. Use a primer that is recommended on the waterproofing container. The backing rod and Bandage have little effect on performance. They don’t necessarily need to match with the waterproofing manufacturer. As long as the waterproofing won’t melt or affect the backing rod you should be fine.
