In response to Re: Basement shower floor
The membrane is not to protect the underfloor area. It is to prevent shower leaks from entering the adjacent areas by seeping under the walls. If you are not worried about possible water damage, then you can eliminate the membrane.

: I have inherited a basement bath which has a concrete block shower with a concrete floor. I want to ceramic tile the floor (and walls), which will necessitate tearing out some of the concrete immediately surrounding the drain and probably moving the drain a little. Question:the concrete is obviously on earth, possibly gravel...is a waterproof membrane necessary? Thanks.
