    The drain assembly came with a Swan prefab shower insert. Anyone have experience with these things? The install instructions and included kit consist only of a rubber boot that fits around the drain stub and a grate to cover it. The fit it pretty snug, but without any glue or clamping assembly...

    I had a plumbing issue years ago that resorted me to remove an old corner shower and am now just getting back to putting the bathroom back together. Bought a new showerpan over the weekend and tonight came across a problem. The pan fits, but the drain is off by about .5-.75 inches. I can cut...

    I recently installed a new acrylic shower pan and I used Oatey "no-caulk" drain (metal). I did a water leak test for 3 days and I saw a small amount of moisture at the bottom. On inspecting I found the water is probably dripping in a small quantity from the gasket itself becasue the silicon seal...

    I have my shower room down to the studs. It has an old terrazzo shower pan which I hope to reuse. It had an inch high metal (lead?) edging around it. It was fairly decayed so most of it has broken off or been removed. I have Wonderboard lite and Redguard ready to go up, but I'm not sure if I...

    I'm doing work on my existing mud shower pan. It's something I was hoping to avoid (was just wanting to repair grout), but it became evident that pan work was necessary. I'm *really* hoping to avoid having to just replace the whole pan, which would make it a much bigger job than I planned...

    I am planning my bathroom remodel and I will be building a neo shaped walk-in shower. If it has a glass door is it a "walk in"? Anyway, because of the shape the Kerdi 48 x 48 base would have to be cut to suit. Is that a good idea or should I make my own with dry pack mortar? Also, what's the...

    I have put in a pre-slope mortar bed for a shower pan using the Pre-Pitch system and 4 to 1 Mortar bed mix. Before I install the liner there are a couple of places that aren't sloping to the drain almost level. What can I do to fix the problem? Can I mix up a little more mortar adjust the...

    I recently purchased a KBRS shower pan. The directions call for it to be set in thin-set when installing but my plumber continues to insist that I shouldn't use thin-set and instead use construction adhesive. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    First time poster here, so please help if you can. I am attempting to do my own walk in shower, I tore out the prefab shower stall and ran into this: well I guess it wont let me post attachments so I will tell you. Its probably a 10"x10" frame inside the concrete slab, around the shower drain...

    Hi all. I'm wondering if anyone has ever set a shower base in foam instead of mortar? Its only 32x32 and would be much easier to get non expanding foam and use that instead of mixing up mortar. Thanks

    shower floor How thick can the dry pack mud be for the shower floor. If I need 4" should I have some sort of wire in there? I will be using Kerdi membrane over the floor. Thanks

    I'm planning on installing a new shower that's bigger than my existing one. My existing shower is 34" by 36". The new shower will be 36" by 36". I think that the drain will not align exactly with the new shower. Do I have to break up the concrete and reposition the drain line or is there an...

    I am looking at custom sized shower tray options for a second floor bathroom. The best option I have seen so far is the cultured marble, for which I've found two manufacturers in the Toronto area. In the first case the product looks quite good but the flanges on the sides of the tray (the...
