Rated 1 out of 5Â by jheizer Buyer Beware! This is not made for tile walls. Do not buy!
This shower base is advertised on the box and the instructions that it is for tile walls but it is not. After I had it installed (wasn't home at the time) I noticed it had notches around the lip of the base that appeared to be for pre-fab shower walls. These will not be covered by the wall if you put up normal durock and tile.I went back to the local home depot to inspect others out of the box and found the same thing. I asked a sales associate and he had no clue what I was talking about. I emailed Aquatic and they said that the notches are in fact for pre-fab shower walls (which they don't sell as an option only a kit with the base) and they advised that I should just fill them in with caulk for use with tile. Ridiculous! First of all, it will look terrible and the caulk is not going to hold up. I demanded that they ship me free shower walls since the product is clearly marketed wrong and I got no where with them after 2 weeks. I would have taken it back to the store, but it was already set in mortar and I had purchased it 6 months prior. I probably could have fought a little harder, but in the end I guess I will just fur out my walls an extra 1/2 in on three sides to cover up the notches. What a disappoinment and headache!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DrDHouser Notches are an issue, price and quality are good.
I wondered about the 'notches, too, though didn't think too much about it until later when I realized they wouldn't be covered by the tile (this was a retrofit into an existing tile job). This is an issue that affects more the aesthetics than functionality but how ridiculous than the vendor couldn't even figure out what the notches were all about. Still, for <$200 what do you expect? The other pans were verifiably garbage, this one will last so it will be there a good long time to 'appreciate' the 'feature'. ditto "What a disappointment and headache!"

I recently had to replace my pre-fab shower base due to a crack in a tiled shower stall. Purchased this product from Home depot as it was the only one with the correct dimensions and center drain. Was led to believe that it could be installed in a tiled enviroment. I decided upon inspection to spend a few dollars and gets a plumbers opinion. His Answer was absolutley not!!! Thank goodness I decided to get a professionals opinion before installation. This product is designed only for complete pre-fab shower stall's. Nowhere on the box or in the instructions does it specify this fact. Also the plumber said that the quality of the base itself was substandard compared to the one being replaced. granted the price was very reasonable considering the unit I require cost an additional $200.00 but in the long run well worth the extra expense. Do not purchase this product for a tiled enviroment, also the unit itself is very flimsy, could flex it with very little effort.
