In response to Re: Shower base installation problem.....
I recently had a plumber install my shower base, same kind and size. I specified I wanted a mortar base for extra support and the manufacturer, Jacuzzi, suggests it also. He did a lousy job. He didn't spread a level base, but instead threw it down in globs. Now there are several spots that "give".

I contacted the manufacturer and they told me too, over time it could lead to stress cracks or pop up loose in other areas. They also told me the only thing to do was to remove the base, which is possible, and chip away at the mortar on there, carefully.

Good luck
