I'm a little confused on where we are right now. Can you provide a recap of which products you want to use and maybe provide a link to the drain? A photo of the space is helpful too.

I'm wondering about a mud bed install too. I notice that there is mention of a weep system. Is this in the threads of the screw-in riser? Is there any requirements for keeping those clear? I don't...

How did you build the floor? I'm guessing you went cbu>heat wire>tile? And it's probably the bottom step that doesn't have enough rise on it?

From what I read, the cultured pan was removed and the shower slope was angled with plywood? I don't know. It's too confusing to figure out.

Jason, I'm wondering if you guys have a lightweight mortar that you would recommend for that tile on walls? I'm just thinking saving weight might be advantageous.

Everyone has opinions. I like Mapei's 4:1 too. Don't know why we would discourage its use?

If that's the design that you settle on, I would recommend adding yet another piece into the mix and that's some sort of a liner that will divide the three sections.

Hi Michelle,

I'm sure this is frustrating but I have to add myself to the confused list. It looks like the problem is that your shower pan was flat so now some slope has been added and Redgard...

Like Davy said, it's feasible but it may not be practical. But that's a decision that you and the property owners will have to make. You have to go above the bench though so that's at least 3 rows...

In your situation, it wouldn't be a bad idea to shim out the framing so that it's even with the flange. Then install the durock down to the tub with a 1/8-1/4 inch gap at the bottom around the tub.

They can mount the glass on the higher side of the curb if need be.

Code is 1/2 inch per foot max. That's probably 1/4 inch total slope for that curb.

You can go with a generic white if you want but it's going to be shiny vs a matte (relatively speaking) Mapisil T.
