One of the most common problems that people face in their shower area is inadequate drainage, thereby resulting in water accumulation. This accumulation of water gives rise to mold growth and can even make the shower area slippery and dangerous. Hence it is important that you have a dry and hygienic bathroom; and the key to achieving this is to lay a good shower foundation. To accomplish this you need ready to tile shower pans, which not only keep the shower area dry, but also protect the sub floor from water seepage. Moreover, the shower pan base will act as the foundation for installing tiles in the shower area.

It is crucial to carefully design and construct the shower area since even a minor glitch can result in water accumulation, and water seepage to the sub floor. To avoid such a situation use a shower pan, which will be installed between the sub floor and the tiles. These ready to tile shower pans are waterproof and prevent water from accumulating on the tiled floor, and seeping to the sub floor. This helps in keeping the bathroom dry and hygienic, thereby preventing mold growth. A dry shower area will ensure that the sub floor as well as the tiles long last and require minimal maintenance over the years.

Tile shower pans form a strong foundation of the shower area, thereby making them essential while designing a shower area. These shower pans offer a waterproof lining and prevents water from percolating to the sub floor, hence avoiding any damage to it. A number of individuals are unaware that even tiles are porous. This point is especially relevant to a shower area that is situated on the first floor or the second floor of a house. In case there is any leakage of water below the tiled floor there could be significant damage to the surrounding walls. This leakage could extend to the other floors of the house as well, thereby resulting in greater damage. It is in order to prevent such damage from occurring that you should consider installing a shower pan below the tiled floor of your shower area.

Ready to tile shower pans are lightweight, waterproof and can be easily installed. Although a number of individuals prefer to install a shower liner membrane below their shower area, there are a number of disadvantages associated with it. First of all, there is a chance of damage to the liner during the installation process thereby leading to water leakage in the future. Further, there is a possibility that water might accumulate over the liner membrane, thereby resulting in mold growth.

Ready to tile shower pans have a standard ¼” per foot drain slope, and an integrated drain assembly thereby facilitating proper drainage of water. Further, since these shower pans are ready to tile, the time taken to build a shower area is significantly reduced. Therefore, to have an aesthetically pleasing, dry and clean bathroom you should install ready to tile shower pans in your shower area.

One of the most common problems pertaining to a shower area is water accumulation over the pan liner. Since your tile floor is not completely waterproof, some water will trickle down to the pan liner. In case your pan slope is not appropriate, the water that seeps down the tile floor might not be directed towards the drain, and might accumulate between the floor and the pan liner. This water accumulation could lead to serious problem of mold in your shower area in the long run. Whats more, in case there is a leakage in your pan liner, your sub floor could also get damaged due to the water leak.

Traditional mortar beds can soak the excess water and can remain wet for a long duration of time, thereby resulting in damage to the tiles as well as the grout lines. Further, mortar can choke the drain weep holes, thereby resulting in a blocked shower drain. All such problems can result in an unpleasant showering experience for you.

Ready to tile shower pans an ideal way to build a shower area

April 11, 2010

Bathroom Accessories, Ready to tile Shower Pan, shower bench, Shower Seats

A shower pan is probably the most important part of a shower area since it prevents excess water from trickling down to the sub floor and causing damage. Traditionally, shower pans used to be made up of mortar; however, since mortar was not all that effective, a separate layer of pan liner used to be placed over the shower pan. Although this method is widely considered to be the most effective solution to the problem of leaky shower floors, there have been many instances of leakage in the pan liner as well.

It is in order to provide an effective solution to this problem that you can install ready to tile shower pan floors in your shower area. Ready to tile shower pan is an easy to install structure that can solve all the problems associated with traditional forms of shower pans. Let us take a look at some of the problems associated with traditional shower pans and how a ‘ready to tile’ shower pan solves those problems:

Bathroom Accessories, Ready to tile Shower Pan, shower bench, Shower Seats

Creating a mortar shower bed is not an easy task and requires a lot of skill and labor. Multiple layers of material have to be used to ensure that water does not seep through to the sub floor. In case a pan liner is being used, it is essential to set it in the right place. Any miscalculation or problem during the creation of the pan floor can result in leakage and severe damage to other areas of your home. Since ready to tile pan floors are completely waterproof, there is no chance of a leakage to the sub floor.

In case you are concerned about molds that have appeared on your shower floor, the answer to this problem lies in the area in between the pan liner and the shower floor. Since your shower tiles are not completely waterproof, there is a chance that water might accumulate above the pan liner, thereby leading to the growth of mold. By using a ready to tile pan floor you will be able to eliminate this layer between your shower floor and the pan liner, thereby eliminating the chances of mold growth.

Bathroom Accessories, Ready to tile Shower Pan, shower bench, Shower Seats

Finally, creating the appropriate slope on the shower floor can be a big challenge, especially for the ‘do-it-yourself’ enthusiasts. An inappropriate slope can lead to water accumulation on your shower floor, thereby leading to problems of leakage and water accumulation. However, most of the reputed ready to tile shower pans come with a pre-formed slope of ¼” per foot, thereby ensuring that your shower floor is perfectly pitched.

It is due to benefits such as these that ready to tile shower pans have gained in popularity across households. Further, these ready to tile shower pans are constructed using high grade material and are treated with waterproofing coatings to ensure that they remain waterproof for a long duration of time. So if you are looking to re-do your shower area or are considering building a new one, you should definitely consider using a ready to tile shower pan.

Enhanced protection for your shower against water leakage

A shower area is your personal space, and it is important to keep it clean and dry in order to enjoy a refreshing showering experience. However, it is not uncommon to see problems such as molds and water leakage in a shower area. In order to provide an effective solution to this problem of water leakage & molds, you should ensure a proper slope of your pan liner as well as the tiled floor. Further, your shower area should also have an effective curb to make sure that water does not splash out and does not damage the surrounding areas.

A typical shower area consists of a sub floor, usually made up of plywood, a waterproof pan liner above the sub floor, layers of mortar and a tiled floor. Since the tiled floor is not completely waterproof, there are chances of water seeping down the layers of mortar and accumulating over the pan liner. In case there is a leakage in the pan liner, this accumulated water could seriously damage the plywood sub floor. Therefore, in order to ensure that there is no water accumulation over the pan liner there should be adequate pan liner pitch.

Shower floor drainage, quick pitch, shower stall, shower slope, Pre pitch slope, shower drain, tile ready shower pan

This pan liner pitch can easily be achieved by using Pre Pitch, which is a unique screeding tool used beneath the pan liner. Pre Pitch would create the desired level of sub floor pitch to ensure that water is directed effectively towards the drain weep holes. The convenient design of this system ensures that do-it-yourself enthusiasts will be able to install it without any hassles.

After creating the appropriate sub-floor pitch, your next line of defense against water accumulation and water leakage should be a proper shower floor pitch. By having a proper shower floor pitch, you will ensure that water flows directly into the drain, thereby reducing the chances of water seeping down the mortar layer. Quick Pitch is an effective system that can ensure that your shower floor has an appropriate slope of 1/4” per foot. Further, since Quick Pitch would be installed over a Center Ring, which will be placed on top of the drain flange bolts, it would not add to the slope of the pan liner.

Your final line of defense against water damage to your shower area would be an effective shower curb. A shower curb acts as a dam against the shower water and ensures that there is no water splashed outside the shower area. However, while installing a shower curb, there are chances of the pan liner getting damaged, thereby resulting in water leaking out on to the sub floor. Kirb Perfect is a unique solution to this problem since it ensures a perfect curb, without any damage to the pan liner.

Installing these three unique tools will effectively protect your shower area from extreme damage caused due to water leakage, mold and other similar damages. Moreover, the ease of installation offered by Pre Pitch, Quick Pitch and Kirb Perfect will ensure that you are able to create a perfect shower area in the most convenient manner possible.

your shower pan forms the base of your shower area, and it is important to make the right selection in order to avail maximum utility out of it. In most shower areas, a waterproof pan liner is placed below the tiled floor and the mortar to ensure that the sub floor is not damaged by the water that seeps through.  However, the main concern with such a set up is that water can accumulate over the pan liner and lead to mold growth.

Isn’t it a great experience to spend some quiet moments all by yourself in your bathroom?  Well, a neat and dry bathroom can prove to be your very own personal space and help you rejuvenate after a hard day at work.  A proper drainage system ensures that your bathroom is dry and hygienic.  Ready to tile shower pans ensure that the waste water is effectively drained out from your shower and your bathroom is left with a scintillating appearance.

Ready to tile shower pans are one piece shower pans that come with fully integrated drains, splash walls, integrated curbs or barrier free entrances, and an integrated pitch.  These shower pans offer many advantages.  They are easy to install, are leak proof and mold resistant, and are also ready to tile. This means you can set tiles of your choice directly on to the surface of the pan.  By installing these shower pans, your shower base is therefore ready to complement the decor of your bathroom.

In single curb shower pans, you have the choice to go for center drain, left drain or right drain according to your requirement.

Bathroom accessories like shower pans are becoming an integral component of all modern day bathrooms.   Present day shower systems are a blend of technology and creativity and are imagined by top designers from across the world.  Bathroom accessories occupy a pivotal point in such designs as they have a tremendous aesthetic appeal and also offer various capabilities.  A shower pan is also a unique water intrusion solution which will ensure that your bathroom is always dry.

A bathroom pan includes the square shower drain which is gaining in popularity owing to its unique design.  A square drain is easier to cut and tile than a round one and so it is easy to handle.  The universal center ring ensures that water is drained out effectively.  Made from stainless clad glass, the shower pan offers superior strength and durability.  The pan comes with a grade puller which makes it easier to handle.

The unique proposition of a square shower drain is that it is completely free from screws.  The screws can become a barrier when you have to open or close the pan every time.  Opening the screws also damages the finish of the pan and can lead to scratches.  The square shower pans instead employ a grade puller which can be used every time you want to open the drain. The screwless model will make it simpler for you to retrieve your precious belongings from the drain.  Following the proper installation procedure will ensure that the shower pans operate smoothly.

Shower pans also have an environmental aspect to them.  Grey water harvesting is a concept similar to rain water harvesting and involves utilizing the water which runs down from the drains of your bathrooms.  Channeling this water in a proper manner and treating it can provide an acceptable solution for watering gardens and for irrigation purposes.  A shower pan ensures that used water from your shower is drained out properly and can be utilized constructively.  It will not only keep your bathroom dry but also ensure that every drop of water counts.

Constructing Your Shower Using a Vinyl, Chloraloy or a Roll-On (liquid) Liner for Waterproofing

Note: Steps 1–3 apply for both Pre-Pitch and Quick Pitch.

1. Determine the size and shape of your shower including the drain type and its location.

2. With the roughed-in 2 x 4 curb in place, measure the distances from the drain to the walls, curb and corners.

Note: Quick Pitch Float Sticks #QPK-101 and Pre-Pitch Float Sticks #STD-201 are 36″ in length. If the distances are greater, Quick Pitch Extended Float Sticks #EXT-103 and Pre-Pitch Extended Float Sticks #EXT-202 kits will be required.

3. Starting in a corner, measure by 2–2 1/2 foot increments around the perimeter of the shower making sure a Float Stick will be positioned in each corner.

Note: The closer the Float Stick ends are to each other, the easier the screeding of the mud mixture will be.

4. To determine the quantity of Kirb Perfect #543 sections needed, measure in 30″ increments. Curb sections are 30″ and have dove tail connectors to attach to one another and will accommodate any length or angles.

5. Determine which type of shower drain you will be using. Quick Pitch Kits #QPK-101 come supplied with a center ring designed for standard shower drains to attach the float sticks. If a Ebbe square drain or 3” drain is to be used, the Universal Center Ring (#QPUCR-108) is available.

6. To figure the liner size or amount of liquid membrane, measure the shower compartment length and width and add at least 6” or what is needed to all sides so the liner will go up the walls to a height of 3” above the shower curb on all walls and over the curb.

7. Once you have figured the kits and liner necessary for your Goof Proof Shower, you will need to figure the amount of bedding mud (mixture consist of 1 part Portland cement and 4 parts clean sand) necessary to fill the kits. Using the square footage of your shower floor, multiply by 12.5 lbs. per sq. ft. (i.e. 3 x 5 = 15 sq. ft. x 12.5 lbs. = 188 lbs.). This amount should accommodate all kits.

8. After all materials are gathered you will want to watch the instructional DVD a time or two to gain confidence in the steps necessary to complete you Goof Proof Shower.

Flooring Supply Shop has scoured the market to bring you the best shower floor system available. We have looked for a system that was straight and true, light weight and very easy to install into its space.  This is easy to lay tile with no difficult, messy and expensive epoxy mortar requirements. the pns are available in a large variety of standard sizes as well as custom ones.  The attractive looking, square, drain easily adjusts up or down to match the height of the tile.  This all makes our ready for tile shower pans the right choice for you.

We couldn’t find the full service shower system we were looking for anywhere on the market so we got creative.  We contacted our friends at Fin Pan and asked them to make shower floors for Flooring Supply Shop that incorporated the Ebbe Square shower drain.   Now we have the best of both worlds.   Finally, we can offer you a shower floor that meets all of your requirements.  When all the work is completed you will see the Ebbe Square drain in the center of your new shower floor fitting nicely within your floor tile, matching the finish of your plumbing.

An Ebbe Square shower drain is already installed in to the new shower pans  making tile cutting around the drain a non-issue.   Simple cuts are easily made, saving precious time.  Ebbe drains are sized to match standard 1/2″, 1″, 2″, and 4” tile without cutting.  When cutting is needed, cuts are straight saw cuts with no grinding to match a radius. Just imagine how much easier glass mosaics will be to install.
