Shower Drain Not Level

Hi-

I am retiling my master shower. I have removed all of the tile and am simply going to retile over the existing pan. However, the drain itself is out of level by approximately 1/8". The slope of the shower pan appears to have the proper slope all the way around the pan and towards the drain. That is, a significant drop from the shower wall to the drain itself all the way around, so the pan itself will allow for the water to flow towards the dran. The edges of the pan are level and everything appears to be ok, except for the drain. Should I worry about the drain being unlevel or do I need to rip everything out and redo the pan. If its an asthetics thing, I'm fine with it and can likely orient the tile to accomidate the slope, but if its going to affect the drainage, then I'll need to address it.

Thanks.

Mike

It drains, right? Then it is an asthetics thing. Set the tile even with the edge of the drain fitting and provide a uniform slope from there to the walls.

Oh it drains, we never noticed a problem before. What a relief, for a second there I thought a two weekend job was going to turn into months of remodeling.
