Dave, you gotta keep up with current events.

From the Laticrete Facebook page-

*Important Notice* As of this evening, August 31st, power has been restored to the Bethany, CT plant. All operations have resumed. Thank you all for your patience and kind words!

Even with no power, the pan is still there.

Alby,

you don't need a pan. measure where your drain center is off 2 walls.
tape across your drain hole and pack the mud pitching it to the center.
measure and mark the mud where the center of the drain is, then use your margin trowel and cut out and remove the mud in the area. then shave the angle.

5lbs/100 sq. ft./24 hours Is just a standard measurement of slab moisture used for about 1000 different flooring products/glues..3lbs per a 1000 is for really sensitive materials and 5 is standard for the rest...The reason they use those numbers that seem so wierd and high is because they are based off of the calcium chloride test wre the measure the wieght of pre-measured calcium chloride that is in a porous container..cover it with plastic and measure it 72 hours later after it absorbs moisture..then divide by three and there you go.

1000 ft is the industry standard for how many test to perform for a givin slab.

I am sure the only reason for that requirement is for bonding the liquid..I don't think it has anything to do with letting the mud cure.or any other shower concern..just a catch all spec used for many glues/sealers etc..

I thought you were going to say it's at the Avenger's Headquarters or at the X-Mansion with Professor X and the other mutants (Westchester, NY.)

Oh well, maybe you'll lend it to The Incredible Hulk and The Mighty Thor next.

I guess I'll be going that way. I was thinking about using my daddy's old piggy bank for the divot but then all the tiny little coins would spill out

a small bucket hot glued to the bottom part of the clamping drain also works.
pop it off once packed and shape the angle part.

you guys act like its rocket science, eye ball it mud it and use your margin to shape it. No need for 9,000 tools in the truck make it 8,999 tools instead
