Iíve decided to take a shot at a dawnusa.net triangle drain. It was on amazon so an easy return if it looks cheap or I find it canít be done.

Well the short version is your going to have to jack hammer the floor to relocate the drain.
The not fun version is your going to have to be spot on with your measurements in order to have it sitting perfectly into the corner. I would temporarily set a couple pieces of your backer board, and even dab some spots of thinset on the wall to set a couple tiles into the corner to get a better idea on placement. Can't have that thing set to far in or it'll be under the wall, and to far out will just flat look awful trying to fill the gap after.

Jackhammering is done. I posted a pic above. The measurements and waterproofing scare me. I ordered the drain last night so Iíll see what happened. Once I have it in my hands itís a lot easier to visualize.

Cool, keep this thread posted I'm curious how it comes out and how tedious it is to do the drain rough in. Just curious when the things comes in could you post the outside diameter measurement of the giant rubber seal that goes into the drain flange please.

I actually went with a cheaper flange. The one they recommended was metal and had bad reviews due to price(I pictured it rusting in a few years). Reviews said itís the exact same as any other cheaper flange. The one I ordered came in today and the outside diameter of the rubber gasket is 2 3/16. It fits in the threads prefect or I could screw in a normal drain cap.

Realized one thing with this drain that I donít like. The drain has no pitch in the stainless. So thereís always going to be some water left in the triangle. :/

Thanks for the info. Can you set up a jig that supports all 3 corners nicely then use a piece of wood and hammer to bang down on the center and create a little pitch yourself?

That just might work to get a a few millimeters. The sides are all folded up with only welds on the .5" of every corner so I don't believe it would affect it there.

Gap beetween hardi backer and mud bed

What do you guys fill this in with? I'm doing a corner drain shower so I have a good 3" gap towards the drain between the hardi and the deck mud.

I was thinking a thicker thinset would likely hold without slumping too much.

There shouldnít be a gap that big. Iíd remove that piece of Hardibacker and replace with one thatís more precisely cut. How are you waterproofing the shower?

This is my 4th shower in my last 2 houses that have had those gaps. They always bring the drywall to the bottom plate and fill in the gap with something that I canít figure out. This is the first time Iíve actually removed that material. Redguard for waterproofing.

Drain is all good. Works great. I did end up making a triangle out of 2x4s and hammering down the center drain a tiny bit with a rubber mallet to create a pitch inside the drain. Itís a tiny bit off but hey Iím no pro.
