Modify Water Addition
I recently used a few bags of this product to build-up the floor level of areas previously covered by cabinets, which will then be covered with new tile. As an older DIY, I spared my back by mixing up smaller batches of 1/3 bag each (about 16.6 lbs), and adding the proportionate amount of water (1 gallon) to each 1/3 component. The first batch was much too "soupy," so I reduced the amount of water added in subsequent mixtures just under a gallon (about 9/10th gallon) per 16.6 lbs of product, and the result was perfect. As another reviewer commented, if you follow the directions on the bag (3 gallons per 50lb bag) you're likely to get a very watery mix, which will be more difficult work. Backing off on the water content a little, will produce a better result. I like the product -- if mixed properly, it dries quickly and is rock-solid. Being light-weight, it was less strenuous to mix, carry, pour and shape.

    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.
