Justin, the pan is aluminum, about 9 inches in diameter and about 1 3/4-2 inches deep best I remember. About 3-4 bucks at Wal Mart. I removed the handle of course. It gets beat up from prying it out of the mud but it can be used several times. I need the non-stick to be on the other side.

Found pics of a couple of my speedhump jobs, both done with Kerdi drains set level with the slab.

The shower curtain hangs to the inside slope of the hump. You get some water out on the bath floor, but it's easily wiped up. All my hump floors were done for people who were not ambulatory.

Nice work Davy, looks real purty! Saw a guy coat a wood form with bees wax for a concrete countertop edge. Wonder if that would work?

John Bridge: I think I understand exactly what you are saying, since its a non weep holed drain, you are setting the "top" of the drain above the slab only a little so you can mud to it, meaning the bump is only as tall as its needs to be for the 1/4" per foot drop depending how far away it is from drain. You have to mud back into the room alittle so its eases slowly to the bump entering the shower. Then waterproof with the fabric, lick em and stick em.

John Mezz:The drain is fixed in a custom framed in space they made, otherwise I might "attempt" another system other than mud...I'm still ignorant to newer things.

Shawn: Sweet video!, What caught my eye the most was that sweet wood float shaped to a point for corners...gonna make one of those for sure!

Those look great John!

Would love to hear your advice on shaping that bump.

I usually make the perimeter of the shower floor level with the outside surface, then I have pitch going to the drain. In my first pic, the level is not sitting on the pan, it's about 1 inch above the pan, which is actually a little too much pitch.

Making the hump isn't too tough. I make a level screed across the opening and then float outside of the hump down to the bath floor, pretty much an eyeball job. Then I float from the top of the hump down to the drain. That process is the same as that used for a regular mud shower floor.

So do you end up moving the pan up Davy? Shim it somehow?

Seems straightforward enough John. Hopefully I'll get to try it out.
