drain cover

i'm ready to pour concrete over the recently added shower plumbing. I have not added a drain cover for this yet. the drain pipe extends about 6 inches above the slab. should i install a drain cover before i pour concrete or just leave the pipe? i have also got some pipe foam that goes around the pipe before concrete is poured. do i use this as well?

I'm assuming this is a new one,not recessed, and your pouring the grade slab and not the shower floor slope and there's no supply lines imbedded in it? I would put some ducttape over it and the foam is handy in case you have to plumb the pipe a little later, so you'll have a little play in it.

Are you using a clamping type drain for a tile shower pan liner? You may want to glue the drain on the pipe (cut to proper height first) before pouring the cement floor. I think it would be very difficult to do it later with the cement up against the pipe. The drain housing has to go into the floor some.
