Installation: Shower Base

Shower base installation tips:

  1. Verify style and measurement
  2. 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.
  3. 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.)
