I would use the PVC. I just don't see any advantage at all to using RedGuard as a pan liner - takes longer, costs more, less history, etc. I just feel more comfortable with a real membrane under there.

Not to say there aren't other applications in a shower the lend themselves quite well to the use of RedGuard or one of the other paint-on membranes, though.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Hi Joe, Welcome. :)

I agree with CX. Given the choice I'd use PVC. :)

Hi Joe, you can use just mortar mix that comes in the bag or mason mix.

Hi, Joe. Please keep all your questions about this project on one thread so everyone can keep up with the history and know what's going on, what's been asked and answered, and avoid confusion and duplication. I've merged your two most recent threads; we can change the title if you like. :)

Tough to believe Homer doesn't carry Masonry cement or Mason's mix of some kind, Joe. You sure you're axin' the right "expert inna isle"?

If not, there are gonna be suppliers for the stone masonary trades there somewhere, and they'll have a better selection of the really good products, anyway. Look for "Moke's Masonary Supply," or Kamaina Concrete Supply," or "Big Island Brick and Mortar," or something like that. I know they didn't stop building stuff over there when I left. :)

My opinion; worth price charged
