Rated 4 out of 5 by from This new product has a very dense foam back which should reduce the chance of crack and leak. The dimension says 34 by 48 but the depth is actually only 33 inches so we had to install a decorative bar to conceal the gap between the shower base and the ceramic floor. Also, the acrylic surface is quite thin and easily scratched. The installer accidentally dropped his tool and it chipped a small piece on the base already. I hope the dimension is more accurate and the surface is more durable. Thanks.

adhesive use

The underside of the pan has a foam backing. Is a foamboard specific adhesive needed to protect that material? i.e., Is Loctite's PL300 VOC Foamboard Adhesive needed, or is the Loctite Power Grab Express Tub Surround Construction Adhesive safe for the foam? Also, instructions say to use a V-notch trowel to the adhesive, but there's no mention of the notch size. Notches of 5/32, 3/16 or 1/4 inch are common, dictating the thickness of the resulting stripes of adhesive. What size should be used? Should I 'butter' the underside of the pan's foam with adhesive, too? I tried your help-line and didn't get an answer to this question.

Hi, I just bought this model shower base, and I'm working through the install. My subfloor is not level, so I believe that I will have to set it in a mortar base. Do you have a recommended type of mortar that I should set this in? Thanks, mat
