: Any advise would be great

I have just installed such a shower, the cement base is referred to as a 'wetbed'. The previous advice by Sean sounds similar to what I did, but if you want a good step-by-step detailed manual with pictures to boot, then visit the John Bridge Forum ( Also, make sure to use a good butyle rubber caulk between the drain and the rubber liner or it WILL leak. Test it by filling with water overnight before laying down the wetbed.
