I have always used the closed cell foam kits and thin set. Then cover that with waterproof membrane. It’s not that hard.

I don’t do it like this anymore…..to much work and to slow…...switched awhile back to the Schluter shower-Systems…man they are easy to install, no water problems, can go over sheetrock, I still install hardi where I can, and fast…....not that bad priced…I would recommend these…..

Thank you Snow Dog for your post! I was able to talk to one of my friends, who is a plumber in Bakersfield, about getting the list of shower products from the website you listed. One of the things I like about using different shower head systems is that I am able to see which type of shower head will give the same washing activity and save more on their water bill. If you are familiar with old shower pipes, you want to be sure that you can save money with each shower bill, so we advise that you offer the best shower heads for your customers and clients.
