Shower Pan- Pre Slope


Hi all,

Have completed the pre slope on a shower pan and noticed a few areas where the concrete has sunk dis-proproportionately to other areas, creating some low spots on my slope from curb to drain.

Some of these low spots are around 1/16" deep over a 3-4" area.

should I
  1. skim coat the pre slope to correct the sunken spots
  2. remove pan and start over
  3. do nothing and move to the liner stage and flood test?

That pre slope is fine---as a matter of fact it's the finest job I've ever seen--

It's time for you to add your liner and pack the base.--Good work.---Mike---

You are in great shape. The liner will conform to any small variance that exists and the second cement cast will see to it. Keep going...excellent looking job from here. It's almost a shame to bury that one out of sight.

Mike, Bud,

Thanks for the compliment.

I have used Mike's advice from my previous posts to get me to this stage.

Onward to the flood stage.

Paul

Don't forget to use a little sealer on top of that flange and under the pan liner.
