Shower Drain W/O P Trap Help!!!
I always use PVC---easiest to mate up with the PVC drain set----
Pack the pipe in gravel---you will have plenty from digging around the old pipe--
Replace the concrete with your deck mud as you form the pan--
This gives you one more chance to adjust the drain set for a level cover---
Make sure that pipe is plumb----crooked will make the drain out of whack to your tile.
Use a square drain cover--
A Latacrete or Schluter drain will not require the 'divot' or the filling---but will cost $125 instead of the $36 that a membrane drain with a square cover will set you back---
