I am putting in a new shower pan and the floor is almost an inch out of level in 36 inches.

Floor Wood Wall Hardwood Flooring


The floor joists run perpendicular to the level and then there is 1x8s on top of the joists and then I just put down a sheet of 3/4" ply and noticed how out of level it is. What is the best way to fix this problem? Thanks

Can I shim the shower base or could I put down a bed of mortar and push the pan into the mortar till it's level?

Electronic device


Or is there an inexpensive self leveler that will work? The ones I've looked at are pretty expensive? Thanks for your advice.

Thanks for your help Bob. I ended up putting a bed of mortar under the pan and it came pretty close to level, about 1/8" off. I thought that was pretty good considering it started off over an inch out of level and it's solid now. On to the densshield tommorrow! Thanks again for your help
