Basement Tiled shower pan drain question


I'm gearing up to do a DIY bathroom project in my basement. We had future plumbing installed when we built the house. I'm attaching a pic of the shower drain. I was hoping to create a custom tiled shower pan for my handicapped brother. Am I able to do that with the current set up? To me it appears that this style drain is meant for a shower stall you would buy. Is there any way to get a tiled shower pan without having to have a high mortar bed accommodate a tile drain? The drains I have come across look like they need to be installed below the concrete. Thanks for the help

Yep--they should have left a hole in the concrete floor around that pipe----

Are you hoping to build a barrier free shower pan?

I've made those and will offer a few suggestions if that's the plan----

In the mean time--go to Latacrete site and look at Hydroban---this is a brush on waterproof membrane that will allow you to build a waterproof floor and walls---Mike-----

Thanks mike I'll take a look at that site.....in a perfect world I would love to build a flush shower pan but the concrete has not been sloped yet do I don't know how you would make a flush pan. I was hoping to only have the curb maybe 1 or 2 2x4's high. If its possible I would live to hear your suggestions

I built a very large handicap shower--barrier free---by removing the slab in the shower area---placing the drain where it was needed--then sloped the new concrete to the drain---added the walls and backer board---then meshed the corners and waterproofed the walls and floor with Hydroban---

Safe and simple
