Eric - materials will be here tomorrow and I'll be able to get back on track. Quick question - once everything is down and the drain is to be packed with mortar, is that the same mud mix as the pan do I use a firmer mortar mix?

And donít forget to throw some P gravel or stones around the drains weep holes before you pack the motor into it to help it drain.

I got the plastic weep hole protector. That should do the trick, right?

Cx asked me to clarify that with the pro-base system the membrane flashing that comes with the product is intended to give you the up turn off the base however the rest of the wall should also be waterproofed ..

The shower is a nonstandard size so I did a dry pack base and not a system.

95% of it went perfect last night until I got to the final corner and ran out of mud. I need to build up another 1/16" - 1/8" to one corner. Can I just add more on top tonight or should I apply some thinset and then build up?

If it matters, last night I misted with water and had it covered with plastic all night.

You won't be able to add deck mud that thin, but a skim of thinset mortar should work by itself. It's not really intended for that purpose, but will work at no more than 1/8".

How long would it take you pros to lay down 75 sq ft of 12x24s that are already cut and fitted and using leveling clips? I can't wait to see how laughably slow I am.
