Help with a shower base installation....
Posted by J. Smythe on February 19, 2002 at 22:36:06:
I purchased a shower base and needed some help installing it. The manufacturer recommends that the shower base be fully supported. However, the base itself has an X-shaped emboss on the bottom with the legs of the X connecting the corners that is approximately 3/8" of an inch deep. I tried a bed of mortar, but the base progressively popped up creating air pockets that swooshed each time you would stand on it. Eventually, 80% of the base was loose and I was able to pop the base up. Do you have any recommendations for what material I can use to support the base for my installation? Thank you in advance for you help.
