Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stirfrybri Disappointed
I was disappointed that they only provided enough of the sheeting material to tile up to your shower head. I installed the material the full height of the wall to the 8 foot ceiling and was then left short for the shower base. I was able to cobble together enough pieces to do the base but I had to use several seams and when I used my small format floor tile it was a real pain trying to compensate for these bumps by using extra thinset. Why not just provide an extra pre-cut piece for the shower base? Would have made my job quite a bit easier.

I have you this product on everyone of my homes and or renovation projects. This kit is complete and if you can read you can do it. It's not a 1 2 3 kit it will take some time between the kit the tiling and other things but it is worth it. The base is strong and solid but light as a feather. It's the only way to go.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lonnie Drain installation
I liked the drain system. I did not have access to plumbing from below. I removed a section of the wood floor and rerouted plumbing drain line before replacing the floor and installing the preformed base. The drain body installation from above worked well and there is adustment vertically and horiztontally to provide for proper grate location in the tile pattern. The only difficulty I had is dealing with was adjusting tile set due to the thicker build up due to multiple layers of Kerdi membrane in the corners. Also double check when applying mortar to secure the Kerdi membrane so you do not have any thicker areas of mortar behind the membrane. It makes tile installation go much better when the suraface is in the same plain..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Showerman Poorly conceived and executed
This product is overly complex for what it sets out to achieve making installation time consuming with no real benefit over alternatives. For example the shower valve circular "gasket" requires a circular hole in tiles that is much more difficult than the usual diamond shape. No sealant is included in the kit that is required for the faucet and shower head yet the kit claims to be complete. The Kerdi membrane requires applications of thinset twice to attach the membrane and then the tiles. Liquid paint on membranes are much more user friendly. If the kit contained Kerdi board for the walls it might be more acceptable. The need for 3 layers of membrane at corners creates a non flat surface that makes tiling more difficult than in more conventional installations. Next time I will go back to a solid surface base and paint on membrane seal. A tiled base is nice but not worth the hassle that this kit involves.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Labor Intense
This product filled my needs as far as material supplied. The installation was a little more labor intense than expected. But the finished product was worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DirtyThirty Great product !!
Very straight forward kit and easy to use. Instead of multiple steps spanning several days, now I can be ready to tile the same day !! Has proved itself over multiple jobs with the oldest dating back 4 years with absolutely no prolblems.
To the person giving this product a bad review because of 'shortage' of material... You don't need to waterproof up the wall past the shower head unless you are doing a steam shower. How wet do you think tiles that high get...really.
I highly recommend this kit.

Did a lot of research prior to making this purchase. Have seen this product in use on DIY network so I was aware of it. Did not want to use a preformed shower pan, wasn't keen on installing Wonderboard on the walls, and wanted something that had a good, long-term track record. At first seemed pricey, but once you put together all these items included and compare the additional materials you would need with other systems, the price is actually better. Watched the online installation videos on Schluter-Kerdi website; is as easy as it looks. Just take your time!
Ordered from Home Depot with a projected delivery date beyond what I wanted; was very pleased when it showed up days earlier than projected. It was shipped in the manufacturer's box (very big) and arrived undamaged. Would be better if they stocked this product, but they don't so plan for the lead time based on your project schedule.
