Rated 4 out of 5Â by Schu After Installation the shower floor is great, but we almost returned it due to irregularities on the underside
When we unpacking and inspecting we noticed some material missing from the support grid that is the underside of the shower floor. It appeared that the mold for the shower floor was not completely filled and there were some voids in the material. After some discussion with my wife we determined that the missing material was not jeopardizing the integrity of the product and after installation it would have no effect on the product performance. It would not be seen as that part of the shower floor would be pressed into mortar that was part of the recommended installation.
We spent allot of time preparing the floor. Sanding down high spots and installing shims so the shower floor would be level when we pressed it into the mortar. With the proper amount of mortar and the proper viscosity (read instructions) the floor was pressed into place and we showered in it two days later. We install it Saturday evening and we showered in it Monday morning. We hung plastic on the walls as a temporary surround.
The feel of the floor is very sturdy. It doesn't sound or feel hollow. The floor is not slippery. The two inch drain was very easy to install in the shower floor. Then it has to be adapted to your existing drain size.
We are very happy with the shower floor and recently purchased a Swanstone shower surround from Home Depot.

This Product takes less time to install than the traditional grout base and tile with a drain. It is less expensive to purchase and less labor to install. Order process was simple and delivery was quick.
I finished the walls with traditional tile per the instructions furnished with the drain. It looks outstanding.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Scott Well made product.
This is a nice product. However, the install was a little more difficult as the entire trap had to be removed and replaced. Tubs have a flange and overflow assembly on the drain which will have to be removed. This should be spelled out better in the description which makes it sound like if you remove the tub you can simply drop the shower pan right in. I am not a plumber, but with the help of the sales assistant in Home Depot, I was able to complete the installation without too much trouble.
