To bring the wall out. Could I use 2” kerdi board on the wall? This would allow me to use drain location where it is and the drain to line up against the wall.

Self Leveler after Patched Floor

I’ve patched a hole in the concrete slab and need to use self leveler now. Do I have to wait a certain period to let the concrete cure before I use self leveler? It is about a 4’x5’ area.

Replace Jacuzzi Tub with Shower

Houston Texas built in 1978. Just put a coat hanger down - 22.5” is when it stopped.

I can see down the pipe and see a slight turn at about 12 inches but no up hump.
