CX, Is that a rolled product?...What type of backerboard do you normally use? How do you attach that membrane to the backerboard?

Not sure what you mean by "rolled product," Billy.

USG recommends a CBU as the backing material and I've used their Durock. Certainly wouldn't scare me to use drywall, but USG has not sought nor received any code approval for that.

The membrane is applied with thinset mortar.

Yes, it comes on a roll. They're 3 feet wide and various lengths. I think you can get as little as a 25-foot roll. You'll hafta shop around to see what larger size rolls are available. I think it's all still available on Amazon.

Met with the plumber who will be roughing in my plumbing. He suggested that I move the drain to the center. His experience is drains in corners and/or along the walls are problems waiting to happen. So now I have to decide whether to listen to him or forge ahead.......humm..decisions...decisions...

As long as everything is pitched properly to the drain it doesn't matter where to put it.

What Ryan said. Your plumber is probably accustomed to installing shower drains with no pre-slope and maybe that's been part of the "problems" he's seen?

If you're not bound by code compliance to use a plumber, I'd recommend you move the drain and install the sloped mortar bed yourself. That way you'll know it's done right.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Well, you have part of the mix needed. That's just the Portland cement. Go back and get about 5 bags of All Purpose sand. Measure it out in buckets, 4 1/2 sand to 1 cement and mix it up dry. Then add enough water to make it barely clump together. Add the water slowly as you mix. When you squeeze a ball of it in your hand, it sticks together.
