ADA Shower Pans


Ive got a small bathroom (6'x6') that I need to install an ADA shower pan. Ive got a concrete floor and the shower base will be 6'x32". Im looking for ideas how to accomplish the slope to the drain at 1/4" per foot. I will be using the Shluter-Kerdi water proof membrane and drain. My question is without having to cut or grind into the concrete, what would be the best way to obtain the slope?

Re: ADA Shower Pans


You will have to build your pan or use a premade and build a ramp upto the pan. If you dont want the ramp you will have to bust concrete to get it level with exsisting floor.

Re: ADA Shower Pans


Thanks. Since I wont be able to move the toilet Im thinking of using the Kerdi low profile linear floor drain along the back wall and sloping the floor to that wall. Have you had any experience using these types of drains?
