I use pre-mix mortar in a bucket. Measure how much space you will be filling in from the floor to the tub bottom and add 1/2". Make sure you don't place any under the tub supports that are made to sit on the floor. Place a piece of plastic on the floor before pouring out the mortar. This prevents the wood floor from moisture damage and sucking the moisture out of the mortar before it sets.
