how thick does this make the pan at the wall?

Asked by mike May 1, 2021

Answers

Goof Proof provides the pitch. Depends on the distance from the wall to the drain. The further the wall is from the drain the deeper the bed.

I used it in a 3x6 shower stall with a 3 piece adjustable height drain. Didn't want to rely entirely on my eyesight. Sorry, I would have to look at the drain and specs you refer to to specifically answer your question. As I recall the ring was an inch high. Too high, too low ??? That got me to the first adjustable lip of the drain with an established my slope. The second lip, the one with the grill, was then adjusted to the thickness of thinset and tile.

As I understand it, this product goes on top of the membrane which is on top of a Pre Pitch kit that starts at 1/8" thickness at the drain. Once you add the membrane and the 1" Quick Pitch thickness, you will have at least 1 3/16." If this is not enough, I would definitely like to know more about the 1.5" requirement you mention.

This kit is for a center drain shower pan. You need a kit plus extension pieces that attach to the ends to extend the slope.

Can quick pitch be used on a hot mop floor

I’d say it could be as long as the tar surface is realitivly level as the rails in this kit create the drainage pitch to the drain.

What determines the finished height of the drain and membrane?

Asked by Sampson2 December 4, 2017

Answers

The drain will screw down to the finish height of the tile. Round drains are easier to work with because you can fine tune them even after the tile is in. Square ones need to be set before the tile is set around it.

Will this system work for left drain/ right drain showers, or is it only for center drain systems.

This product did work well for getting the proper slope but I couple of issues arose. I used a square shower drain which someone else had stated you need a different adapter for which this will work for a square shower drain but you have to alter the center ring slightly to allow the shower drain to drop low enough for the slope. Also if your shower is any bigger than 36 by 36" you will need an extension kit. In the descriptions it does not state exact size of shower Pan that this kit will accommodate. I have done a lot of mortar bed shower pans by hand without this kid and I will say it made getting the slope correct much easier. One other thing that I had to make an alteration to was the bottom of the ring because of the lower flange bolts after you put the Pan liner in keep the ring raised approximately 3 sixteenths of an inch so I had to notch out the rain for the bolts the retaining bolts. If you don't notch it out for them the ring will set higher in you will have to shim up your slope rails to the same heigth which could create an issue for a Diyer. Head the description been more accurate as to what size Pan it will accommodate in not having to make the alterations for the lower flange and the upper drain flange I would have given this product a 5 star rating.

Not worth your time
$40 pieces of plastic with a poorly executed concept. It's just not worth the time or money when you can do it yourself .. cant even return it waste of time to have to fix it all over ..on top of it all shame on this company for selling you a product that doesn't even have enough product to execute their recommendations only to worce you to buy an expansion back which then gives you more then you need... waste of money

I love it. Easy to use. I never could have gotten the proper pitch without this. I built a shower pan on another bathroom in the past without the aid of quick pitch and was very unhappy with my results. This made it simple to do it right.

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.

Well thought out product
After 30 years of installing shower pans it took me a couple tries at this product before it sold me. I can use this with any drain, but I do have a preferred chrome drain that is thinner than most of the cheaper plastic drains that most plumbers leave me. The best part of this pitch kit is the opening that is left at the drain that allows the secondary drain holes at the liner clamp to be open and free of concrete or pea gravel that usually would hamper the draining of water that soaks past the grout.

Do not leave in the sun!
The issue was I staged these materials on our back patio and sun exposure ruined these. They are totally unusable now. I had no idea the plastic was of such a delicate nature. $80 down the drain. I will build the base the old fashioned way.
