    I have a client that is interested in a precast shower pan. She saw something on the east coast while traveling there but was not able to name it. I have used Florestone terrazzo shower pans a few times but they are not readily available here in the northwest--they are made in CA and the shipping up here is significant. So I'm curious, what other similar products are out there that might be considered? I am aware of the acrylic/FG stuff, the cast iron pans from Kohler, etc., and that's about it.

    Yes I will talk to the folks at the big plumbing wholesalers, but wondered what ya'll here might be aware of.

    Pans are available made of Corian, Swanstone, and Silestone. You can probably see these online and get the name of a local distibutor.

    The true terrrzo pans have a metal tile flange around them. That will rust away in about 15-20 years.
