Shower floor Question
I recently tore out the fiberglass shower pan in my shower (approx 42" x 34") and am planning on building a mortar bed so that I can install tile on the floor and walls.
However, the hole in the 3/4" subfloor is about 7" in diameter for the drain and the new drain I bought is obviously smaller.
I'm wondering what's the easiest way to fix this. I'm thinking about just adding another layer of plywood over the existing one and cutting a smaller hole for the drain. If I do this, can I use 1/2" or should I go with 3/4" again?
The other issue is that I may have to extend the drain if I raise the subflloor. It currently sits flush. I'm guessing this will be a simple fix as I can hopefully buy a small piece of PVC to extent it.
Has anybody ran into this before?
Thanks in advance.
My computer is in trouble--I'll post a link to pan building--but you will have to type in the numbers as my links are all dead http://www.ontariotile.com/preslope.html
Add the 1/2 ply --it will be fine---is the drain located okay for the new shower?
Perhaps Blondsense or someone else can post a live link---Mike----
Thanks! Good info. The drain is smack dab in the middle of the shower. For the pan I'm planning to use the pre-pitch/ quick pitch / kirb perfect since this is my first time building a pan.
