What is the best way to find a qualified person to install a mortar shower pan for tile?

If you have a wholesale tile distributor in your area that sells directly to the tile installers, you might try calling them for some recommendations. They usually have a pretty good handle on their tile installers that buy from them. After that, ask the installer for some references of jobs done both recently and maybe a few that have been in for a number of years. Then check the references.

Shower Pan Installer

I live in Northern California and I did ask for a reference at one of the tile suppliers, but people are so afraid of getting involved in a lawsuit they won't give out names. I have all the material I need to do the job, but just afraid of doing the slope wrong. This pan has just stopped everything and if I could find someone capable I'd hire them in a minute. I may look into the Schluter Kerdi Shower System.
Thanks for your input.
