Hi guys. Have a question concerning shower floors. I'm a mortar bed guy. Someone wants me to use a product called Shower Ready. It's a shower base that you tile over. My Question is how reliable is it. I'm sure it will tile ok but has any one had any problems with it not holding up well long term? I'm really Leary of it. Don't like being the Ginny pig using it the first time
Thanks

Thanks for the info Is there anyone else out there to weigh in on this product. I need some ammo to take back to the customer. By the way the company is called Tile Redi and the product is called Redi Base. It has its own glue for the tile.
Thanks

Good point Mike: After posting this I went on a search. I found post that are from 1012-2013 from all you guys that responded back. Very interesting to read. Obviously, I will pass on this product. The slope issue is a big deal with me. I had a preformed fiberglass shower stall that I put in my own house over 30 years ago. The slope was a problem and water pooled in it. I cussed that thing every time I stepped into it. It was like ice water on my feet. Sounds like a problem waiting to happen. Thanks to all you guys for all the input. I'll stick with my mortar beds.
