What is the purpose of the leveling compound mounds under the shower base?
The shower base installation instructions show like in the below picture
Will that float the base and leave a gap between the floor and the base ?
Can a similar result be achieved using self leveling for the entire floor of the bathroom?
This is a small bathroom (around 8'x8') and since the guys who did the tiling before did a crappy job I was planning to level the entire floor anyway.
This is in the basement, it is a concrete slab
