    Hi, I hope someone can offer some helpful advice! I'm using a waterproof membrane system (alino) using their linear drain system. After the thinset dried I noticed that the drain tray is sitting a bit too high to allow full drainage!! I feel like filling that hole and smoothing out the angle...

    I need four 60x32 left shower pans for new home build - anyone know if Foremost brand ($239) holds up to the higher priced Signature brand ($349). Only diff I see in specs are a smidge variance in the ht (2 5/8' v 3 3/4") and L and W per their specs, and some in height of basin. Wondering if...

    Hi: I have been an avid reader of others posts and replies as I've gotten settled in our new (old) home. I'd like to ask for input on a shower enclosure that I may have over caulked and sealed. I'm posting a photo showing the bottom edge of the enclosure where it meets the shower pan. As you...

    Good Day! I am in a bit of a bind. I am re-modeling my bathroom (tub/shower to walk-in shower), and I messed up my final slope to the drain. I used Spec Mix per a friend's suggestion instead of Deck Mud with Sand mix. Everything was packed in perfect (it appeared to be) with a very nice slope...

    I am trying to retile a walk in shower but I have run into a problem with the existing shower pan. I'm remodeling it because the shower was showing moisture issues, loose tiles around base, mold, etc... I have managed to remove the tiles from the walls an ceiling and the cement backer board...

    This weekend I did my first shower pan attempt in a 3x5 shower. I used the Goof Proof Quick Pitch system to do this. However; after the Sand Mix dried one side had a valley that puddled water. From what I'm reading it is most likely best to just redo the shower pan and chalk it up to a learning...

    My contractor has installed a fiberglass (?) pan over cement for my shower replacement. The walls are engineered stone sitting on the Pan. The pan has a void under it. I can feel in "sink" slightly when I walk on it. The contractor says its normal for pre-formed pans to have voids. I have one in...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and am a novice at building a shower. I've done other remodeling and am adept at tiling, but I am not converting tub to shower and would appreciate any advice you can offer for someone who's new to building a shower. Which one would you advise? Thanks, Kevin

    Hello again all. After practicing on the small bathroom I'm finally doing the master. I feel like I know what I'm doing for the most part, but do have a few questions. The shower will be 4'x6', and I'm doing a mortar pan, with a topical membrane and a linear flange drain at the wall. Right now...

    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.

    My contractor just walked out - he was installing a custom shower and I stepped in and let him know I thought he was not doing it right. I wanted to make sure I'm not missing something. (My background is YouTube how-to-do-it videos). We took out the bathtub and I'm using a linear drain at one...

    How much Portland cement and sand do I need to mix to complete a 48" x 31" shower pan with a 48" curb? I'm doing a Laticrete membrane so there won't a be preslope level (i.e. all the mortar will go in at once). The height of the mortar at the drain will be 1-1/4", and the curb will go in on 3...

    I'm installing a 3x4 mortar shower pan in a 2nd floor bathroom. After much research, I'm leaning towards setting a Laticrete drain in a mortar bed and using Hydro Ban to waterproof everything directly under the tile (i.e. no pre-slope, no vapor barrier). The Laticrete video says to put a...

    I've read bits and pieces about folks who waterproofed their shower pan with Aqua Defense or Hydroban instead of using a shower membrane. They claim this saves time because they only have to do one layer of mud. Does anyone have any experience with this? If it worked for you, what...

    I am in the planning phase of basement bathroom remodel. My house was built in 2006, and the previous owner completed the basement himself. His work was subpar, particularly in the basement bathroom (ugly tastes, and shoddy craftsmanship). Anyway, the shower pan appears to be poured concrete. I...

    What type of concrete should I use for this? I'm re-tiling a shower stall. I've already stripped the old mosaic tiles. The current concrete shower pan is sloped to the drain in the middle but it's also uneven in areas and especially on one side, so I would like to raise one edge and even it out...

    I've searched online and checked at Lowes/Home Depot but they were no help — basically a shoulder shrug. I need some help how to install a proper drain grate over the shower drain I have. What should I get for this? I'm redoing a shower stall that was somewhat makeshift. The sloped concrete...

    Hi, I would like to know if anyone has used kerdi shower membrane with a standard round tile drain. Can I use a regular tile drain with the kerdi membrane over a sloped thinset mud layer?
