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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.
