I love this: the touch, the feeling and the Bold look!
This is a very special product for the people whose heart and soul are in the shower and enjoy it, with the special feeling which cannot be narrated in few words, you have to experience it. It does have the mesmerizing feeling.
This 48-inch x 36 inch rectangular cast iron shower pan is of very high quality and has very durable baked in enamel coating, which also has a very sophisticated slip resistant texture for added safety and convenience. The usable space is around 42 inches length and 28

I believe it is of very high quality and virtually unbreakable, and that is the reason Kohler gives a limited lifetime warranty for this product as long as you own it.

Superior shower base
This is a top of the line shower base. It is made of heavy cast iron with a beautiful white porcelain finish. The base has a well-defined, textured, slip resistant center. The curb and perimeter are highly polished porcelain.
This base is heavy cast iron, rated at 175 pounds, and if definitely feels that heavy. When positioning the base, be very careful with your hands and fingers. I used a 1 X 4 to pry the base into position, leaving my hands and fingers well away from getting smashed, or

The beauty of this shower base will compliment any finish you choose to install on the shower walls. The base has a solid feel under foot, although in the winter it can be cold. (Mine is installed on a concrete slab.) I let the hot water run a couple of minutes before I step in and it feels great.
While this is a much nicer shower base than composite bases, it is also more pricey. But the receptor is a permanent item, and worth the cost for the years of service that it will deliver.
I just finished installing this kit and did a flood test. It is most certainly waterproof. It takes a fair amount of time to install. It is also very expensive. I have seen it on HGTV and I wanted to try it because I don't usually install tile showers because they almost always leak somewhere. I haven't been that fond of the idea of backer board because there is no where for the water to go. But next time I am going to try Hydro Ban by Laticrete on backer board. I will try to update my review if

My add on shower system for my master bath upgrade.
this sluter shower kit came with a cd to watch the installation . the nice thing about it is that you only have to use regular drywall because of the sluter membrane which when installed properly you can even run the shower before you even tile. The floor pan made tiling very easy and uniform as there were no worries of drainage pitch. We are very pleased with a 4 x 4 foot shower stall which is much roomier than our old fiberglass insert.

watch the video and fallow the steps.pretty easy!
We saved a lot of time compared to laying a full mortar bed.We bought ours over-sized and cut it down to 42 x 40 with a circular saw it was very simple.Make sure you have a good true trowel for leveling out the thinset and the Kerdi on the walls.We did not use the curb in our application.I wish you could buy it with or without the curb.
Product is as advertised and so far, so good! Quality seems good and solid piece.

I refurbished a shower due to water leaking. Base does not measure a full 32". Had this been a new build or I could have demoed the walls it would have been a 5 across the board.

Single Threshold Shower Floor
This product is very good quality. Was very pleased at the heavy, durable construction. No problem to install. In fact, with the bottom redesign, there's no need for caulking or adhesive of any kind as was required on the older ones. Definitely pleased with this product. For the price ~ can't beat it!
This is a great shower basin. It looks great. Was easy to install. Very solid and easy to clean. I highly recommend it over any of the plastic/resin based shower basins we have seen.

Kathryn Shower Receptor
The shower receptor is worth every penny we spent. Our contractor told us we bought the cadillac model. We love it.

Pricier than other options we looked at but when compared to less costly options there was really no comparison. Extremely heavy and well made. Appears to be indestructible. Looks fabulous when installed. Highly recommended.
Two small issues.
• The base is not symmetrical (not true 38 X 38) so the shower can be installed with the door opening only one way.
• The drain is off center of the base. Results in me standing on the drain a lot.

It arrived at my home in good condition. Appears to be heavy well built and went in easy. It had good support under so did not have to mortar to set. Used roofing nails to anchor to studs. We will see how it holds up
