Hi -

I found that when I test fit the tray the slope was very slight to begin with but I had already cut it down so there was no returning it- and after I put it in I feel like the slope to the drain is so slight that I actually question if it is sloped at all. I’m doing a shower in my house now and plan to do a mortar bed. (Tomorrow actually). If you haven’t put the tray down yet I recommend returning it and doing a Mortar bed. I thought the tray would be easier but it wasn’t. Plus, I had to cut the tray down so the perimeter wasn’t even. A mortar bed is just better. At least, that was my experience.

Welcome, Rich.

Hope you'll start a thread for your project. Any information you get here will be lost on your project and we wouldn't wanna lose any more relevant information.

Hmm, as long as it drains properly I think it should be ok. I'll look into it but being my first shower I wanted it to be as easy as possible and use all the prefabs available. I'm definitely gonna have to trim it as well so we'll see.

cx, thanks I definitely will create one soon
