After leveling base on subfloor, use base and mark studs. This will be the installed height of shower base. Mix the low-shrinkbedding material (grout, mortar, plaster, etc.).Concrete is not recommended. Apply enough bedding material to support the entire bottom of the shower base.The bedding material must not be used under the apron (front edge).

Lift and lower base over center

E of drain pipe and set into place

4 After the bedding material has been poured and before it sets,lower the shower base into position with the drain assembly sliding over the waste pipe as shown in Fig. E. It will be necessary to "rock" the shower base until the top of the tile flange aligns with the lines drawn in Step 3 on the stud walls. Make certain the apron is contacting the rough floor along the entire length of the shower base. Insure that the base is level in two directions (see Fig. F). Snap strainer back into place and check for proper drainage.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Your American Standard shower base is designed to last indefinitely with reasonable care and maintenance.

The high-glossacrylic surface is resistant to impact and retains its luster with proper care and maintenance. An integral,slip-resistantsurface is incorporated for user safety.

General Cleaning: Do not use abrasive cleaners; a mixture of warm water and a mild liquid detergent is adequate for most cleaning.Strong detergents formulated for use on tile or porcelain-enamel surfaces should be avoided.

Caution: Do not allow liquid detergent containers to remain on base surfaces for more than a few moments. Do not use Lestoil, Windex, Mr. Clean, Dow Disinfectant (spray or concentrate), or Lysol Basin, Tub and Tile Cleaner. Do not allow nail polish remover, dry cleaning fluid, acetone, paint remover, or other solvents to contact acrylic surface.
