I wouldn't use plumbers putty, I use a bead of 100% silicone. You're trying to form a gasket under the liner.

I've noticed Home Depot has their pan liners pre-cut and rolled up real tight. Sure makes it difficult to get the wrinkles out. I laid the last one out in the front yard for a while and it still had wrinkles.

@Davy, I ordered a 6 x 8 ft liner from internet. It came folded over, rolled up tight, and vacuum sealed in plastic wrapping in a 4ft long box. I did not lay it out in the sun... ( I didn't know to do this...). I did the best I could to smooth it out.

Now taking advice from someone else (and ignoring the goof-proof video instructions)... I cut the center hole out before putting on the drain clamping flange... to make sure the weep holes are not blocked (Goof-Proof video shows cutting hole out after the clamping flange is on... and after leak test... but my friend stated the liner might seal up against the inner body of clamp piece-- thus blocking the drain weep holes).

So now I need to figure out how to temporarily block the drain weep holes to do my leak test.

You'll need an inflatable test ball that can be placed below the weep holes to plug the drain.

Michael, after you get the pan folded and nailed across the top, you then have to cut the liner over the center hole in the drain. You then can slightly lift the liner at the cut out and shoot a bead of silicone in a circle between the top of the bottom flange and the underside of the liner. Then a small X cut can be made over each bolt head and then the liner can be forced over the bolt heads. Then you can bolt down the round flange. I'd let the silicone dry and then flood test it. Like Ryan said, you'll need to buy a test ball that goes down into the riser pipe that's below the drain. Some folks have used a balloon, pushing it down the drain enough to plug it. Then just pop the balloon when you're done and it'll go on down the drain. But, any way you test it needs to be low enough in the drain to test that silicone gasket.

@Davy, after I got the the two corners folded and nailed and one down each side from the corners... I rolled back the liner and put a bead of 100% Silicone around the flange...

...then I made a small X over each of the screws and pushed the liner over them... then I cut out the center hole. The weep holes are all clear.

I got the CBU installed today. Spaced it 1/2" off the liner around the bottom.

very aggravating that it's rotating the picture

Yes, I know the shower pipe is inverted-- it's the old one and just in there temporarily.

Question: Is Mapei 4 to 1 Mud Bed Mix (Sand and Cement Mortar Mix) good to use for the Shower mud bed over the Quick-Pitch?

Thanks Kevin, also in watching another video on mud bed mixing, etc. I heard the guy say to install cement board screws 8" apart-- I did not do this... I just eyeballed 1 foot spacing. Should I be concerned??? Go back and add more screws?

Can you feel the wall flex?

More won't hurt as long as you can waterproof over the new screws.
