You should be fine----my bath is on the same line as a bed room---that's why I suggested you check---

I finished installing the drain, installed some vapor barrier and some backer board, and fabricated a couple nooks. I plan on pouring mortar mud, and getting the pan shaped in th morning. Then I get to take the afternoon off and go see a movie with the family.

I forgot to replace the shower head pipe while I had the system drained yesterday, I need to drain it so I can replace the pipe, before I put up the backer board on this wall.

Ready for mud, in the morning, as soon as I can get the tar paper and expanded steel mesh in place. I'm hoping to be finished working on it by noon.

Your use of the word 'pour' has me concerned--pack is the right word---deck mud is rather dry and is packed---and shaped with the edge of a trowel----

Yes, I used the wrong word I suppose. I saw a video that claims when you can take a hand full of the dryish mix, and pack it together like a snowball, it is at a good consistency. Anyway, I'm getting ready to turn-to, I'll post up some picks after its "packed & troweled". Thanks for the input mike, I appreciate it!

I used two and a half bags of 4/1 mortar mud. I mixed a baba and a half hoping it would be enought to do the job. I had to mix a second batch when I realized it Wasent enough. I think the second batch was a Lille wetter than the first, as a lot of water floated to the surface. I sprinkled some dry mix on top after I was finished.

That is what? the preslope?

Did you read the link I posted?

Yikes---next step is the liner---folded --no cuts---

then the durrock----after that the pan mud---but jezz---that stuff should be as dry as beach sand---read the link----just enough water to dampen the mortar enough to stick together when packed like a snow ball---

Yes, it is ready for the membrane, same stage as pic #9 in your link. I put a level on all sides and I'm happy with the way it turned out. I better run to HD in the morning, I used two and a half bags (of three) so far. How thick should the top layer be? I think I'll get three more bags, better to have and not need, than to need and it have. Plus I have to do the step. Will I be able to walk on this tomorrow? Or should I wail a couple days?

So far I happy with it, I'll run the shower after the membrane is installed to see how well it drains.

1 1/2" to 2" is the typical depth of the deck mud ---

Installed the membrane, and the rest of the backer board in the shower. Next I need to install the backer board in the shower entrance jamb, tape & mud all seams and pack the final layer bedding mortar, and form the curb.
