Before you begin, locate appropriate product reference (see page 1).

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1. PREPARING ALCOVE

• Strip alcove to bare studs.

• Alcove studs should be constructed as shown above.

• Floor must be clean, smooth, and level (check with level). Sub floor must be installed. Do not install shower base on open floor joists.

• Cut hole in sub floor as shown on page 1 to accommodate drain.

STEP 2. INSTALLING BASE

• Trial fit base in prepared alcove. With base sitting flat on floor, check with level

FIGURE 1. Check to assure base is level.

on top of base. Base should be level from front-to-backandside-to-side(Fig 1).

 

If base is not level, remove base and level floor using leveling compound.

 

A floor leveling compound (smooth mortar) or a similar quick-settingcompound specifically made for leveling floors may be used to fully support and level base.

After base is leveled, if alcove is larger than base, shim between base and studs to create a tight fit. Screw base flange to studs (Fig. 2).

CLEANING

Do not use any abrasive cleaners or metal scrapers.

If drywall mud or plaster gets on your shower, it may be carefully removed with a wooden scraper made from a piece of scrap wood.

Adhesive may be removed with mineral spirits.

Ideal cleaners are Soft Scrub Gel® or Comet Gel®.

FIGURE 2. If necessary, shim between base and studs for tight fit and screw to each stud.

WARNING: Some cleaning products are not suitable for use. Read all labels carefully.

DO NOT USE if they say “not suitable for use with ABS, acrylic or polystyrene”.

SCRATCH REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS

1.For effective scratch removal and polishing, you will need to purchase these items: 1 sheet 1000 grit 3M® wet-drysandpaper

1 sheet 1500 grit 3M® wet-drysandpaper 1 sheet 2000 grit 3M® wet-drysandpaper

1 small container of 3M® rubbing compound #05933

These items can be purchased at most auto supply stores that provide supplies to professional paint and body shops. Call before you go.

Not all auto supply stores will have these items.

2.Start sanding with 2000 grit paper. Use small squares of paper about 2" x 2" for all sanding and use lots of water. The water serves as both a lubricant and to prevent residue buildup on the paper. Residue buildup shortens the effective life of the paper and may scratch the surface you are trying to polish.

3.2000 grit paper is the finest grit available (the higher the number, the finer the grit). If you can’t remove all of the scratches with 2000 grit, switch to 1500 grit. Remember to wash the paper frequently with water as you sand.

4.If all of the scratches cannot be removed with 1500 grit, switch to 1000 grit. This should remove most fine scratches. If you have deep scratches or a gouge, coarser paper may have to be used (see chart to right). Be careful! Using grit that is too coarse may actually put in more scratches than it removes.

5.Once you have removed all of the scratches by sanding the finest paper possible, repeat the sanding process using successively finer grits of paper until you have once again sanded with 2000 grit.

6.Now use 3M® rubbing compound #05933 on a soft, damp cloth. Polish using considerable pressure to produce a smooth, shiny finish.
