It would work but would be pretty expensive for what you are doing, why are you not using concrete? I am assuming you are working an interior floor so quickcrete should work fine.

There is, in my humble opinion, no better product for custom shower pans. Light weight, easy to mix and work with, and inexpensive. I've used hundreds of bags over the years, with only brief attempts with other products, and nothing compares.

Warning regarding the directions on the bag "Start with 3 gallons (11.35 L) of clean, cool water. Mix in 50 lb (22.68 kg) bag of mortar to a smooth, paste-like consistency." This mixing instructions result in a wet and soupy type consistency. I purchased Custom Float 50lb bedding mortar for a shower pan over a vinyl presloped concrete pan. It was recommended by the Home Depot associate in the tile department. I expected the bedding mortar to be more of a dry consistency to pack and shape a shower pan. It was hard to smooth out and shape the pan because it was so wet it was sticking to the trowel. If you decide to use this product then I recommend calling the 800 number on the bag if you are a DIY'er. The technical support said it should be a "wet sand" consistency and you should not be able to squeeze water out of a fistful.

I didn't know how much I needed. Wanting to pour my sauna floor of app. 20 sq. ft with a 1/4" drop to the drain, I found no reviews helpful. All I could see online was that it was good for 25 sq. ft. But how thick? Once I read the bag at HD it said 25 sq. ft. at a 1/2" OK, I was starting between 1.75" and 1.50" depending on how far away from the drain and sloped it down to 7/8". I got 6 bags....that should do it. I used almost 3. SO the 1/2" per bag is deceptive. DO NOT believe the reviewer who said 3.5 gal of water per bag, like the directions state, will turn it to soup. I found it to be close to my needs of no slump, with the slope. Easy to work with with plenty of time to smooth out as I went.
