In this regard, what is Schluter used for?
Schluter ®-KERDI is a pliable sheet-applied waterproofing membrane and vapor-retarder designed for the direct application of tile. KERDI is ideal for use in tiled showers, bathtub surrounds, residential steam showers, and other tile applications in wet areas.
Subsequently, question is, how soon can you tile after installing Schluter? Wait 24 hours after the membrane installation is complete to allow for the final set of the mortar and to ensure waterproof performance of the assembly at seams and connections before water testing.

Do you need underlayment for tile?
Underlayments are the support materials that lay underneath your tile on a floor. They sit between your subfloor (usually plywood) and your tile. They provide a water-stable base, make the floor more rigid (less chance of cracked tiles), and are better suited for tile adhesion.
