I use EDPM menbrane for this. no need to use cornerbead Use bullnose tiles to give a clean edge all around the recess.
leave anything you install over the lip up of the lip at least 1/4" to prevent wicking
Thanks for the reply
What Degree of slope is usually used,so the water can run off but not have the Shampoo go for a walk too
We didn't plan on Bullnose tile,I don't even think we can find something to match.
What if we can't find a bullnose tile,should the corner bead be use with some caulking.
The second pocket for baths,does it matter how high up the tub
I didn't understand your last sentence to well,can you explain please about the wicking
