Hello,
Having a bit of a pain getting a shower base in place. It's stone resin and setting onto Backer board. Tried once with mortar and it didn't quite me take. A few folk have suggested tile adhesive. Any experience of using this for shower ashes? Any pros and cons?

The floor under the shower has underfloor heating pipes (I know they shouldn't be there, but they are..). The base it self is supported/ raised on a platform.

Any experience/ comments appreciated.

Thanks

When you say "raised on a platform" what do you mean ? legs or ???

Tile addy is just another form of mortar mix, so may/may not be appropriate.

I’ve only ever seen plumbers bed shower trays down with loads of clear silicone in recent years.

Depends on the MI's Stevie. Some say to bed down on a weak mortar mix.

Yeah I know but I suppose it depends on what you are bedding it down too. I wouldn’t bed anything down to timber/ply or chipboard with a mortar mix as it’ll never adhere without movement or cracking.
