shower floor

In reply to remove concrete mortar from shower floor? Help! by ximena on January 4th, 2003 09:44 PM [Go to top of thread]

ximena, the normal method of removal for this is to begin with a hammer, no chisel. Hammer the concrete working in a line, back and forth, across the floor; this will begin to give you a first breaking point. Then work to divide this piece in half using the same method. Once you're able to pull out a few peices the rest will break and come out easily.

Before tiling this, you'll need to replace this concrete bed and let it cure thoroughly. I'd wait 2 days before tiling, and 3 more before grout.

And yes, 1/4" per foot drainage is the minimum required, so be sure to maintain at least that.
