In response to Re: Mortar bed for jetted tub?

: We're installing a Cielo jetted tub by Whirlpool. The instructions say to "...place a bed of gypsum plaster or cement mortar on the floor..." for the tub to sit on. That's all it says. So, how thick a layer should be put down? And is this a dry mix or wet?

John,
It's a wet mix. Both mortar and plaster set up very quickly. I like to have several piles that can squish down. If you try to do an even floor of it, the tub may not "set down" low enough. Terry
