Looking at the picture and the literature, is a person to use this to pitch to drain then put liner on top and do another mud bed before installing the tile?
Asked by: Jerryb
Pre Pitch does the mud bed under the liner to direct the moisture which collects in the liner to the weep holes around the drain and is code required. The reason it is code is it will draw the moisture by gravity away from the walls to avoid wicking up the walls and causing mildew and mold problems. Quick Pitch does the mud bed inside the liner which you install your tile on. Won't Pre-Pitch and Quick Pitch together double the pitch to ½ inch? No. The Quick Pitch Center Ring rests on top of the flange bolts of the drain which raises the system up to allow for water to flow to the weep holes and compensate for the Pre-Pitch eliminating the doubling of the pitch. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it promises -- very well I'd heard about these online, but was unable to find locally (Seattle area) -- not even at Home Depot. Allowed me to easily set the slope for pre-pitch in my shower. Note that you need both pre-pitch and quick-pitch for a complete solution: this was not clear in the write-ups that I found online. My two complaints: (a) very expensive for a few hunks of plastic, and (b) could do with at least 2 more angled rails (they ship 6, really needs 8).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
