In response to Re: pouring floor and installing drain in shower

: I have framed a shower and I'm ready to pour the floor and put the drain in. I needed to know how thick to pour the bottom layer and how thick for the layer above the vinyl pan liner. I also need to know how to do the drain. I have a PVC drain for ceramic tile with an adjustable top piece. Should the drain be completely hooked up and installed and the bed poured around it? or Should the bed be poured leaving a hole just big enough to fit the drain through? Can you describe how to do the installation of the drain so it will be at the right/reasonable height? Thanks, David

David,
The best instructions I have seen for installing pans on the Web, are at the link below. The plumbing should be in place and tested. Many inspectors want the vinyl pan tested with the plumbing before the upper mudset begins. Terry
