I have a shower floor that is not square by any means. I have looked everywhere trying to find a way that I can calculate how much material I need. If anybody is willing to help I will try and explain the dimensions and the location of the drain. (using Kerdi :yeah: ) 2" at wall-1" at drain will give me the 1/4 per foot I need

Thanks in advance

Welcome, Nelly. :)

The only thing we're here for is to help. But first you gotta axe your question, eh?

And then 'splain what Ttt means. :scratch:

To The Top. A common substitute for "bump" in the online forum community.

CX, I will try and explain, Starting at front wall of shower running clockwise the dimensions are as follows 27" front wall-27" left wall then turn 45 degrees for 3'-then 34" back wall turn 90 degrees for 32" for right wall then turn 30 degrees for 37" to tie back into front wall (I probably just lost everyone :crazy:) drain is pretty much center of the floor with drain at 1" sloped to 2" at wall. I need to know how much material for deck mud I need to purchase. (I have purchased 6-60# bags of sand topping mix and 2-50# backs of sand?

If I'm understanding you correctly, it sounds like you got about 17 square feet there, Nelly. Try plugging 50" x 50" into the calculator. (Somebody get my back if you get a different answer.) :twitch:
