I wouldn't say it's common. But I've done a shower floor with a little border. Not nearly as complicated as that one tho.

I used a 1/4 x 1/8 on the last pebble job.

It was almost too much.

You really, really don't want to clean mortar out later.

Troubling choice in Land O Lakes FL Shower rebuild.

I use Mapei mostly, and really like the products they have. As has been said their FlexColor is a better choice than Fusion in a shower. But I won't use FlexColor on a natural stone and/or a pebble...

Not sure about 4 inchers, but wouldn't want to do this with a six. Those cans are meant to slip back inside to give you access to the electrical junction. That is, if you don't have access from above.

Is your drain deep down there a black pipe? Like ABS? Or is it galvanized steel pipe? Or is it cast iron? Doesn't really look like PVC.

Step back just a bit and take another shot of the drain area. Is there a difference in the makeup of the concrete directly around the drain area from the rest of the slab?

Am I not understanding? The liner is punctures already. It needs to be replaced.

If you're working on a slab, mortar some utility bricks down instead of using lumber.
