Laticrete 3701 Fortified Mortar Bed Install with ACO Linear Shower Drain

I set a really long ACO shower drain today into its new home here in Vancouver.  This is a large barrier free shower all ready tested for leaks and ready for the drain setting stage and mortar bed.  Here are a small handful of pictures I took today.  This day I documented step by step from 10:00AM till 6:30PM.  I did this for a client who is preparing for  the same step in his steam shower.

The pictures here are just a sampling and not every picture in the set.  In total I took 96 pictures and I have finished uploading them all to a new album called "Installing an ACO drain".  To view this album you need the password set you after donating the my blog page.









Drain dry fit here in the picture.   The strips are not wood but rather Ditra Drain.  This is used in replacement of candle wick or hemp cord.  The design allows water an easy path under the mortar bed to the showers weep holes.


Slurry Coat of 253 and then straight away with the 3701.  


ACO drain back painted with Hydro ban.  Custom NobleSeal CIS flashing collar to prevent mortar from entering white shower drain.


Drain set and levelled.



I worked across the back first and then rounded the left corner.  Took all day.
