What is the proper cement or mortar mix to lay down a shower pan? Underlayment is black paper and hot mop. Tile will be placed on top of pan as final surface.

You can use type S, but it is best to use pure cement and sand and do not make it up to thin. Type S has cement in it not enough, I always used cement for this type of project it holds better.

Hello Joe, I recommend you go to home depot or similar and get 2 or 3 bags, (whatever amount you need) of Pre mixed Type S Mortar. With this you just need to add water. Impossible to screw up.
You can also get a lot of ideals for this project and others by going to brickcertification.com read all the links, download all the FREE Information on the site, and you may also be interested in looking over youbethebossbrickblockstonecontractors.com any questions ever you can contact me here are at clcbrickman@gmail.com or call 24/7 at 602 692 1896

Thank you and good luck
Charlie Cummins

Hi Joe,

We've heard most tile setters use one part portland cement and three parts sand. You can find more details at this article: http://westcoastshowerpans.com/shower-pans/how-to-tile-a-shower-pan
