Can I install over wall board, or directly to stud only?
When using tile walls, not the coordinating enclosure, can the pan be installed over already-installed wall board, or must it be installed directly onto the studs? If onto studs only, is the wall board meant to overlap the top edge of the pan when later installed?
Thank you for your question regarding the Delta 38" Neo Angle Shower Base and I am happy to assist you today.
When installing this base with a tile surround, you will need to install the base either directly to the stud, green board or drywall. You may use the wall board to overlap the nailing flange before you install tile.
I hope this information is helpful!

Does Delta make this base with a 15"on center drain?
i purchased this 38" neo angle shower base but my drain is 15" on center and not 12" on center. Do you have one with a 15" on center drain?
Thank you for your question about the Delta 38" Neo Angle Shower Base. This unit is only available with the drain located at 13 in. on center.

Thank you for your question about the Delta 38" Neo Angle Shower Base. The unit does not need to be installed into a mortar bed unless the sub floor is not flat or level.

When installing this shower base, can you install it on top of cement board? My bathroom floor is going to be tiled, and I have put down cement board on the entire bathroom floor. Can I now install the shower base using a mortar bed or an adhesive?
Thank you for your question about the Delta 38 in. Neo Angle Shower Base. You can install into a mortar bed, insuring the base is being installed level. If you are using cement board, you would want to use either self leveling compound or a mortar bed.

Can this base be used with a tile wall? I was told that the base has to be fiberglass in order to use tile.
We are replacing our current shower and bought the above base.
