    I am ready to install my fiberglass shower pan and walls. I have heard about setting the pan in something to level it and to make it more secure. Sounds great to me. Just what exactly do you set it in? How much of it? Can I just dump it on the wood, or should I put roofing felt under it first? I appreciate the help!

    Lightweight concrete, known as Gypcrete and Structolite brands, is good.
