The first step was to add VIM’s curbless shower drain and to back butter it using thin-set mortar. This is done to prevent the drain from cracking. Also, do not get thin-set mortar into the weep holes.

Square the drain with the back wall using a carpenter’s square.

Dry fit tiles over the curbless shower and leave a 1/8″ to 1/4″ expansion and contraction joint between the tile and walls.

Label all the sheets of tile and clean the surface of the curbless shower pan with a damp sponge, ensuring there’s no moisture on the curbless pan when done.

Apply thin-set mortar to the curbless pan using directional troweling and the appropriately sized trowel for the tile.

It’s important to use white thin-set mortar with porous tile like marble.

Set the tile and clean the grout joints using a paint brush.
