waterproofing a shower pan

Hi, I would like to know if anyone has used kerdi shower membrane with a standard round tile drain. Can I use a regular tile drain with the kerdi membrane over a sloped thinset mud layer?

As far as I know you use modified thin set the apply the kerdi membrane and sand mix to create your slope.

Go to the Schluter website. They have their installation manual you can download, plus helpful videos and how to's for just about every situation their products cover. I have used their shower kits and their ditra for the floors and have had very good results. However, I would hesitate to use any of their products for a situation they don't say it will work for. Their products are designed to be installed as a system, in a particular way, with specific type thin sets.
