shower pan thickness
I found a lot of useful information here on constructing shower pans. However, it is not clear to me how thick a conventional (non Kerdi) shower pan should be. I understand the pre-slope is about 3/8" thick at the drain. What is the additional thickness of the final mortar layer? I'd like to keep it as thin as recommended.

Hi oldee. Glad you could join us. :)

It's getting late so you may not get a pro on the Forum to answer your question until tomorrow. But you will get your answer, I promise you that.

Hang in there. ;)

Normally, the final slope will be in the neighborhood of 1". Sometimes you'll see it less than that, but less than 1" as a top bed doesn't tend to take tooling that well.

Although it's enclosed and supported, I'd still try to get as close to 1" as possible. What sort of range did you want?

Everyone has his opinion. :) I recommend an inch and a quarter at the drain. If you've done the pre-slope about right, you'll have an inch and a quarter to an inch and a half throughout the floor. More doesn't hurt. :)

Thanks for the feedback. I'll go with 1-1/4 to be safe.
