    How to build a pre-slope
    I'm about to build a pre-slope in a shower base (floor) over existing concrete in a basement for tiles. The drain pipe is approx. 2" above. What is the proper procedure to build this up?

    You'll Be Pouring A Dry Mortar Bed For The Tile. You Need To Mix The Mortar With A lot Less Water Than Normal It Just Needs To Be Moist
    If Your Drain Is At 2" Id Give It A 1/2 Slope To The Drain, From All Sides.
    Lets This Dry Before You Lay The Tile, Now Also Rememeber To Install Your Liner Before You Pour Your Mortar Bed.
