Yes that is correct.

On a side note. The previous owner must have been a concrete finisher or something. We got a great stamped patio but a VERY sloped concrete floor. Can I use deck mud to make the floor level?

Tiling Shower Walls Help


Which floor, the bathroom and shower area? Yes you can, but it'll need to be bonded and minimum 3/4" or so making it kinda thick where it slopes. Self leveling is another way and may be better cuz it can go from 0 to and inch or more.

It would be just the shower area. The bathroom floor is pretty level now. I'll take measurement in an hour or so when I get home. I don't know if if is more than an inch out of level.

I'll probably just do the self leveling stuff. Before that I need to replace the P trap and drain pipe, back fill with gravel or squeege. I was thinking about placing a 3-4" or so form around the drain pipe so the self leveling doesn't come into contact with the new pvc. Then fill in the area left with some deck mud.

Ok so it looks like the slope was 1 1/2. So I can do one of two thing. Use sand mix to make the slope a little more gentle or level the whole thing and then make the shower pan on top of that. Any thoughts?
