Shower base installation tips:
- Verify style and measurement
- Trial fit the shower base. The base should be installed pre-drywall against the studs. Make sure the base is level. We recommend setting the base in a bed of mortar for extreme out of level conditions. This will provide complete support of the bottom. Use shims to level. Nail or glue shims to the floor.
- Install the drain according to manufacturer’s directions. A good quality sealant should be used under the drain collar and bottom washer. Tighten the nut to finger tight plus 1/2 to 1 turn. It is important that you Do not overtighten the drain. Wipe off excess silicone immediately. (Do not use plumbers putty.)
