Q:Should the pan be anchored to the studs, or is setting it in motor sufficient?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi there, it needs to be both, set on mortar and anchored to the studs. An alwya make sure it is well leveled

by|Jan 31, 2023

    A:  Anchored to studs

    by|Jan 31, 2023

      A:  The shower base should only be set in a bed of mortar and you should not fasten the tile flanges to the studs. Fastening the flanges to the studs will void the warranty on the shower base.

        A:  The mortar definitely and above all try to get level. I assume you are tiling the walls. I find it easier say if you are using 12 inch tiles to put a 1x wood band around the shower walls and lay off that level. Then come back and cut each tile individually to fit the bottom. Trying to start on the pan usually ends up with fighting the level all the way up. You still may have level issues you just have to shim as you go. TILE IS NOT PERFECT contrary to what most consumers think. Also I recommend laying the back wall and bring the sides to meet it. Do not change back and forth it just makes it harder to grout. Also if this is your first small tiles like 6x6 will work your a%# off grouting. Also I would go to the ceiling easier and cheaper than trim.

          A:  I have already answered but wanted to add I think this is the best pan on the market.

              Q:How far is the drain?

              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  One wall will be 15 inches to center of drain and the other will be 24 inches. There is usually a picture of the base with dimensions listed in the picture group on left of item page. It lists all dimensions including height, curb, etc.

              by|Jul 26, 2022

                A:  The drain location is measured from the studs and for this shower base it is set at 24" x 15" to the center of the drain hole. If you look to the left of the picture on Home Depot's listing for this product listing, you will see a photo slideshow. The second picture down in the slideshow will be the technical drawings for the base which will show you the drain location dimensions.

                  Q:Is 1/2" cement board ok to use with this shower base, or do I need to use thinner thickness?
                  by|Jun 8, 2021
                  6 Answers
                  Answer This Question

                  A:  I used 1/2” cement board and it worked fine. There are other options besides cement board that are sturdy and a lot easier to use.

                  by|Jun 9, 2021

                    A:  Yes, 1/2” cement board is required for wall tile.

                    by|Jun 9, 2021

                      A:  1/2" minimum, but fur out the framing so that tile transitions smoothly over the lip of the base. The lip of the base is thick, so furring the studs will prevent the tile from looking kicked out at the bottom.

                      by|Jun 9, 2021

                        A:  Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. In order to allow the backer board to protrude out from the studs further than the tile flanges on the SlimLine shower base, we recommend that you use 1/2" backer board as this thickness will ensure that your finished wall covering (tile) will be able to completely cover the tile flanges.

                              Easy to installed. Lightweight, size fit exactly what they said. I was concerned about the shallow of base because of water splashing on the floor, but this is not the case, the shower drain they suggested is draining the water faster.

                                Contractor installed in late November - he was impressed with the well built and heavy pan. Only thing I do not understand is why the center drain is only centered side to side and not front to back

                                    Quality exceeded my expectations. The base is re-enforced very well with pvc rings. I was concerned about the structural integrity when I ordered it, since I was using it for a base for a tile surround. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality when I received it. I used it in place of mudding-in a custom base for tile and do not regret it. This base was for a custom dog bath and I will be using a dreamline base for a bathroom remodel coming up.

                                    Shower base arrived with scratches not noticed until installed over mortar mix, and dirt showed scratches. Suggest keeping base in plastic wrap as long as possible, and covered during tile or enclosure install to protect finish. Hopefully scratches will clean up and not be noticeable.

                                    Overall happy with this purchase. Solid construction, good price. The instructions weren't very clear on how much mortar to use under the shower base. I used a 10 pound bag, which was not nearly enough. Should have used 3 bags. Without enough mortar, there is some movement when you walk on it, causing squeaks.

                                    Thank you for your feedback. DreamLine recommends that you start with a 60lb bag of mortar, mixing it to a thick, pudding like consistency. It should be spread 3/4" thick around the perimeter of the standing area, tapering down to 3/8" thick around the drain. After the mortar has cured, you should have a shower base that is rock solid. Movement and squeaking of the base tells us that it is not installed properly and should be corrected.

                                    If you have any questions regarding your installation, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866.731.2244. We are available 8am-7pm EST, Monday through Friday, and Saturdays from 9am to 5pm EST and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

                                    I highly recommend the DreamLine shower base. It was well made and felt substantial in the important areas. It has a nice flange for the shower walls or tile to overlap. In reading reviews for this and other products, the most common negative was cracking and the associated noises. The correct way to install shower bases is the bed them in mortar over a solid floor. Once done, it should be solid and not prone to cracking. This product exceeded my expectations at an affordable price. Time will tell if it proves as durable as it seems.
