Pro GEN II Solid Polystyrene Shower Curb - 2′ Long
Shower Waterproofing System Accessory Description
This 2-foot section of dense polystyrene can serve as the structure for a tiled shower curb. This curb works with a variety of tile shower waterproofing systems and membranes. It is constructed of durable, lightweight material that can be easily cut down to a desired size. A v-groove runs the entire length of the bottom which will create a strong dovetail hold with the cured thinset that adheres the curb to the subfloor.
Customer Questions & Answers
Shower Waterproofing System Accessory has 14 Questions and Answers.
Why is modified thinset better for my installation?
Modified thinsets are stronger once cured. Most have additional anti-crack features, and better initial tack/grab (AKA less “slump”). They also are required for use with porcelain and glass tile.
Should I install a traditional mud kit (drypack mortar and PVC liner / mortar and membrane) or use a pre-formed foam pan?
Pre-formed pans are easily modifiable and easy to install on any substrate. They are great for DIY, as well as for a fast and clean installation by a professional. Drypack kits do not work well for tiles smaller than 2" x 2" without additional work.
The mat I bought is too big or too small. Can I add wire or remove wire to make it fit?
No. Never cut the heating mat. The floor heating mat is designed with a very specific resistance in order to consistently maintain heating at the chosen wattage per square foot. Trimming the heating cable in the mat would lower the resistance of the cable causing the system to overheat. Adding heating cable to the system would raise the resistance and the system would not heat properly.

I liked the WarmlyYours shower kit it is straight forward and easy to use. Takes one day to get your shower prepped for tile.
