Installation of the shower stall

Prepare the intended location of your shower stall and it is advisable to remove the tiling on the floor and install it directly on the base of the shower floor. You are also required to locate a draining hole within the floor and cut the appropriate hole through the hole; this is where the plumbing expertise comes into play.

Build another frame on the floor to support the shower stall and install the prefabricated unit onto the support frame. Make sure that you hold the pan firmly and then slide it into place before screwing it. The next step is installation of the side bars of the shower stall and mount the stall onto the shower wall. Cover the frames with a dry wall and seal off all the open seams with caulk and the last step is painting it an attaching it to either a curtain or a shower door.
