How to seal a shower pan liner against a concrete foundation wall?


Below grade shower remodel. (Unable to include photo, so here's the link)
One wall is concrete, the others, wood frame.
I considered adhering the liner to the concrete, but then quickly realized the tile and mortar will not adhere to the liner.
How do I seal this thing up?

How to seal a shower pan liner against a concrete foundation wall?


Anybody?
I've done plenty of searches to no avail, - if this is not the place to ask, I don't know what is.
Below grade showers with at least one concrete basement wall are common.
So how do you seal the shower pan and still hang ceramic tile?

I'm not so sure it's all that common the way you done it. Looks like a pre slope and your ready for a liner. My best suggestion would be to glue the liner to the concrete and then adhere a layer of cement board to the concrete with thinset. Pack your mud deck in and then Redgard the board.

Thanks for the reply Mop in Hand.-
I think the situation is common: below grade shower with one wall that is against the foundation.
What I ended up doing was framing the wall and boarding it up the way one normally would.
Setting tile this week. It's going to be nice to have that downstairs bathroom back.
