Answer: 
The Pre-Pitch creates a proper sub floor pitch needed underneath the pan liner to manipulate the water flow towards the weep holes that are an integral part of the shower floor drains. The Quick Pitch used with all standard adjustable shower drains. Used whenever a pitch is necessary to ensure proper drainage to drains.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beware!!! DO NOT BUY!!!!! My husband installed these in our Master Bathroom shower. 2 months after tile install we started to notice a pattern in the floor. Tiles began cracking and water was getting under our marble mosaic. The pattern was exactly were we had installed the pre pitch plastic strips. The tiles were cracking in those areas. Come to find out, the plastic pre pitch can not hold the weight of the mortar and marble tile. We now have to bust up the entire shower floor, remove the plastic pre pitch and start from scratch. A very expensive and stressful lesson!!! DO NOT BUY!!!!! March 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good DIY'er product. For a beginner DIY'er in masonary skills, this is good assist. It would have been better to have had 8 guide arms instead of the 6 it comes with though. May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, needs more specific instructions Pretty decent product. Worked well at helping me maintain the correct pitch but, if you are screed-challenged like I am, I recommend placing the sticks about a foot apart rather than the recommended 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart (unless you are using a really long screeding tool). Also, the videos and written instructions really should spell out for the casual DIY-er what they mean by "properly prepared subfloor". In my case, I have a plywood subfloor and initially poured my concrete right on it. Turns out I need a layer of roofing felt and a layer of metal lath and THEN the Pre Pitch sticks and the concrete. I didn't learn this til a few hours AFTER I had poured that layer so I had to dig it up... Moral of the story: watch every single video multiple times and read every single FAQ section multiple times. The vids and the FAQs are not very consistent in the info they include so if you miss one vid/question, you may miss a really important nugget. February 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy way to pitch a shower I've made pitch wedges in the past but this was definitely easy. Used in conjunction with the rest of the pitching kits it made a perfectly pitched shower pan. December 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pre-pitch sticks Yes, it is true that they do not give you enough screws and there should be 8 sticks instead of 6, but other than that it is an excellent product to use. If you have a ban saw and have not use the entire length of a stick for the shower you can make a stick out of the remaining piece. Scribe a piece that you have not screwed down yet to the piece that you cut off. Run it through the ban saw and you will have an exact piece that you are about to put down. Problem solved. That is what I did. Worked perfectly. Good luck. March 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy System for Shower Perfection Use this with Quick Pitch and you get a perfect slope to drain. Make sure you make your mud semi dry otherwise the mud will try to seek a level point. You do not want that. April 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super time saver for custom shower pans Okay, for this project we decided that most prefab shower pans are too boring. But on top of that, they seem super expensive considering the materials they are made from and the manufacturing casting process. Anyway we decided to match the curve of the curb side to the curve of our (you guessed it) curved shower curtain rod. Pre-Pitch allowed us to keep the mud pan thin so that the build up to the main floor was minimal. The Pre-Pitch extensions allowed us to run the pan area out 5ft. Probably the only elegant solution at this price point. Shipping was quick from Home Depot, so there was little delay. March 20, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made this project so much. Easier!! So glad I bought this and you will be too. I had no idea how to pitch my shower pan and to think about the math to figure it out was driving me crazy. So I ought this instead and it literally was plug and play. October 31, 2014
