What is the best shower base for a shower on the second floor of a home?

Asked by Janet Quinn
Brownfield, ME

The shower will be a steam shower and tiled floor and walls. I do not want to have any leaks in the future. It is bigger than a standard shower.

Schluter Systems has a complete package for shower pans or "bases" and this could be your best bet.

When combined with the entire Schluter system, you can rest assured that leaks won't be an issue. Hope this helps.
