I am putting a shower in the basement that has a cement floor but I don't want to tile over it and just use it for athe shower floor-do I need to seal it? And can I add color to this mix?
Asked by: bj
it is not as simple as that. You need to use deck mud (5 parts sand : 1 part portland cement) as a 'Pre slope' then lay a PVC pan liner, then use the deck mud to make actual slope over the liner. check out products like quick pitch and videos by goof proof on YT to see how this is done

50 lb. Deck Mud Mortar Mix is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Ideal for DIY!! Disclaimer: I am NOT a professional. I was installing the pre-slope in my new shower basin utilizing this Deck Mud. Everything I read has said to use 5 Parts sand to 1 part cement (5:1 mixture) I contacted Quikrete directly to ask what their mixture of their deck mud was. The person told me it was a 3:1 mixture (3 parts sand to 1 part concrete) and they DO NOT RECOMMEND you mix any additional sand to the deck mud. Being as I am a rookie, the stuff dries super quickly! It was tough for me to get the slope done in time before it dried. Towards the end of my small shower pan pre-slope (33 inch x 33 inch) the deck mud was already dry and unusable. Instead of using this deck mud for my actual shower slope itself, I purchased Portland Cement and bags of sand. The 5:1 mixture was MUCH easier to use as a first time shower pan installer. This product might be useful for a pro, but for a rookie, mixing the mixture was MUCH easier and didn't dry nearly as quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too much portland cement for deck mud almost impossible... Way too much portland cement for deck mud almost impossible to work with unless you buy sand and at 4 dollars a bag for sand it makes the whole experience unnecessary any reputable suppliers have deck mud 75 lb 5 to 1 ratio sand to cement for $5 that was ridiculous
