TIle Ready shower pan


I just bought a 32x48 tile ready pan, no threshold, and it is green and appears to be rather sturdy. My concern is, there appears to be no slope for water to run to the drain. Has anyone seen this before. And it is non returnable.

No personal experience, but FWIW, there is an old thread here on a product called Tile Redi Shower Pan.

I love the tile ready pans and the prices. They seem to be priced at the lowest price of a comparable shower pan.

If you are setting that pan over a concrete floor---do not seal the concrete before applying your mortar---you want the concrete to bond with the mortar and a sealer will hinder that----
