Shower strip drain installation

Is the wall tiles too? If so, I'm not sure how this could have been done without breaching the waterproofing.

JoBro, you're using the term proper in a way that suggests every other setup is not proper, so therefore wrong. While I can see…

I'm surprised you can't lift the tiles without lifting the bedding layer. Is the bedding layer so brittle?
