Bathtub replacement to shower pan, when installing a shower pan the first thing you have to ensure is the any bottom floor that is rotted has to be replaced before installing the shower pan liner.
Once all floor materials have been replaced its real easy to install, the back side of the roll is marked for easy measuring and cutting to size, if you need to bond two pieces together make sure that your seams are nice & straight. Shower pan liner material is made from durable PVC vinyl which is a very good moisture barrier and prevents mold from accumulating. Once the liner sets in place you are ready to install your shower pan. Nothing to it

This membrane is used to build custom showers with bases formed out of deck mud. You will also need X-15 shower pan adhesive and I highly recommend the Oatey corner dams for almost any shower configuration that you are planning to build. The 6ft x50ft roll is great because there are no wrinkles in the PVC to work around and you can more easily build inexpensive facility group showers in a long row against a wet wall. For my purposes, it is also very useful for ultrawide showers in residential housing for the disabled. If you're torn between buying the 5-foot and this, this is always the better choice. I always run this at least nine inches up the walls and the membrane has to fully wrap around standard curbs. The 5-foot roll can only be used to make a shower 44 inches wide or so with this method. That's well into the luxury range, since most showers are at best 36 inches wide, but it can still be a bit confining for stalls with extensive custom modifications like multiple grab bars, benches, and different kinds of compensatory handholds and footholds for the disabled.
There are many ways to build custom showers with tiled bases these days, but this membrane forms the backbone of the most common traditional methods which use deck mud for the base. These are still the most popular methods because they are not only extremely cost-effective but also proven solutions that will easily outlast almost all of their upstart competitors two or three times over. Their only downside is that such shower stalls can only be constructed both quickly and correctly by skilled, experienced workmen, even though there are a number of modern techniques and products that takes a lot of the really fine work out of building them.
Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Sturdy, High Quality
