I used Pre-Pitch to do my 6’ x 4’ shower pan. It’s great! I’d use it again if I had another project.

Is this intended to be used on top of pvc pan liner

I’m not really sure we used this to get the perfect pitch for drainage because we were making the pan using the cement mix, it’s not easy but worth the time! If you have a pan I would think it was prefabbed to have the correct pitch, I had a prefabbed pan break so I wanted to stay clear of that.

would it be possible to use this for a custom shower roughly 3 feet by 7 feet?

My shower was custom size too, about 3 by 5. I can't see why it wouldn't work but since your shower is longer I don't remember if the pieces are that long. Where there is a will there is a way. I know this kit made it a lot easier.

I have 1/4” gap between the drain and cement floor. Is there anything I need to do before or will the pre pitch fix it?

Use sikaflex around it first.

The shower pan drain should “lock” or “pinch” the membrane sealed. After that, any drain trim piece that can be threaded into that piece and remain at the proper height with slope will work. I set my trim pieces and then tape them very well to protect them from being scratched.

I used the pre-pitch, quick pitch, weep hole protector and curb kit. These were essential for me as a DIYer to get a professional end result. I'd highly recommend the entire system to anyone looking for a perfect shower pan and curb system installation that meets code. Making a shower pan is still very hard work but this system eliminates much of the stress associated with a DIYer's lack of experience - especially if you watch the Goof Proof Youtube videos. Also on the Goof Proof website there is a support phone number if you have any questions. In my case I did and they answered right away and were very helpful. Great product and people that will support your installation.

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!!!!!

I had to buy 2 sets because it only comes with 6 strips. Other than that, it's been pretty easy to use. Glad I got it.
