|In response to Re: Cultured Marble Shower Pan|
: : : How should a cultured marble shower pan be "poured"?
: : : Should it be flat, with no seamless sides? Or should it have a "lip" up the sides?
: : : I have a flat one, with very little slope to the drain, and it has settled since it was first installed. The silicon caulking around the base only seems to last a year before it leaks onto the floor (and onto the ceiling below--it's a 2nd story bathroom). It's driving me nuts and damaging the floor, and it cost a lot of money to have installed.
: : : Do I need to bite the bullet and have one put in with a "lip"?
: : A 'pan' has sides and holds water. doesn;t matter if
: : I hope this helps. Ed Minich
: Yes Doreen, your pan should have a 'lip'. The lip fits behind the wall panels and forms a seal (when properly caulked) that is 'up' behind the panel. Since water flows 'down' the seal prevents water from leaking.
