divot method details

I may have an upcoming shower project where a 3 piece clamping drain is already in place.

If I use the divot method, how wide do I want the divot at its base? Is it smaller than the diameter of the bottom half of the flange? Same size?

The plumber also set the drain so the bottom flange is flush with the subfloor. Is it critical that it be removed and re-set higher?

The height of the drain flange is not as important with that installation method as with a traditional pre-sloped liner.

The "divot" must be large enough to facilitate using something to protect the weep holes and permit them to function, but no larger than necessary. If the manufacturer of your direct bonded waterproofing membrane has a published method, follow those instructions. Some of the sheet membrane manufacturers have a specific shaped membrane adapter that would give you the size you're looking for. Noble Company and Schluter are two that spring to mind.

Typing divot into the Advanced Search feature and asking for Titles might give you some more information. Some of it will not be manufacturer's recommendations.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Heres my method. I used to use the bottom 1 1/2 of a coffee can for the divot, now ive been using a frying pan, it works really good.
