Leveling acrylic shower base on concrete


I have 1/2" slope on finished concrete basement floor where shower base will be. I could 1) flatten the area now and then place base later using additional mortor, or 2) get the drain ready now, place enough mortar to level AND fill in grid under base. #2 obviously quicker and less mortar mixing but worried about not keeping base level.

Suggestions? Thanks.

I would shim the pan with mortar. Are you going to install an ejector pump? Is the sewer line below grade?

Re: Leveling acrylic shower base on concrete


Just a couple thoughts here...
Could you make sure your drain pipe is all set, buildup the mortar bed up then push the shower pan into the mortar, then level out before it sets? Or level out with mortar/leveling compound and then use an adhesive for the base...
Good luck!

You will want to level the floor for tile, why not do that before you set the base.
