When your shower plans include a ceramic tile floor in the shower it is critical to install a mortar shower pan. A mortar shower pan consists of a flexible plastic like shower membrane liner sandwiched between two layers of mortar.

It is important to slope the mortar layers towards the shower drain so that water drains properly into the drain. In addition, it is important to use an adjustable shower drain assembly when installing a mortar shower pan.
