Tile Ready Pan- HELP!!!

Trying to redo master bathroom. We bought a tile-redi shower pan put the apoxy down and waiting a day or so before stepping on it to start putting up new backer board. Now of course we have already started tiling up the wall and notice the pan is starting to bubble up in a corner, almost as if the apoxy didn't work in that area.. HELP! we don't want to rip everything up as it would probably destroy the pan and all the tile work done. Dumb question, is it safe to screw it down? and use some form of a sealer to prevent water from getting down in it? There will then be river rock tiled over top of whatever hole we create... need a good idea without wasting our money and time already spent.

are you saying you used the two part epoxy to set the base into? If you did, it wasn't meant for that. It's for setting the tile to the base. Type tile ready in the search window on this site. There is a long thread on these things. Bottom line, they're junk. That's the general consensus.
