How would you handle the Kerdi drain? It has a wide flange that is thinset-bonded to the Kerdi, making a waterproof transition.

The ProSlope is simply a substitute for a mud preslope. The preslope is not that difficult, and does not have to be perfect. It is, however, one of the more enjoyable parts of a shower installation.

I'm no Schulter guy, thats for sure, but I don't believe a preslope is necessary for Kerdi. Indeed thats the whole point of the stuff.

Nor am I particularly familiar with Pro-Slope, but my understanding that it is not stuctural, and it is, as Bob suggests, merely a substitute for mortar under a preslope membrane. I would not want to stand on that stuff.

I'd float a regular mud bed. Its really not that hard.
