Waterproof bathroom floor


I have seen a pink membrane to place on a floor before laying tile. Does anyone know what it is called?
Thanks,

The company name is Schluter. The tile underlayment is called DITRA. My Home Depot carries it.

Waterproof bathroom floor


I first thought you meant Schluter products, but Ditra and Kerdi are orange not pink. Maybe you're thinking of the liquid applied membrane, Redguard? It goes on pink, and turns red when it's ready.

However, if you think that by just applying a membrane you're going to end up with a waterproof floor, you're wrong. What are you trying to accomplish?
