Thanks Matt. When I was investigating systems I was really impressed with their product specialist. They know their stuff. I was also impressed that Mapei prodcuts were apart of their line up and now reading from JW that they made the waterproofing just for that pan.

We dropped the pan in today. We did have to pull it up once to add some shims, but lesson learned on what it takes to get it level the first shot. The drain was super easy to install and I love the fact that it can seat any way and the drain will line up perfectly. Not to mention that there are no screws but just a drain lock. Nice clean look on the drain.

Can't say that I am too thrilled at the price point. The 47x59 pan with premium install kit cost nearly $1400, but I saved a ton of time on the install side, so some of it was made up already.

I'll post pics soon.

I also installed plywood on the walls of the shower. Something that I was hesitant at first, but it's going to be waterproofed and allows for the freedom to install bars anywhere they want in the future. They do say that you can recess the plywood and install CBU over, but I figured why go through the extra step. I install tile over AD not CBU, so it shouldn't matter what is underneath.

They look like a copy of the impey aqua dec. I have used these a few times in the UK with their tanking system. Very nice system but I cant tell you long term as I have not been back to them places.

If they are anything like the UK versions then they should be fine.

Got the pan in and 2 coats of WP.

I could have used the Mapegum up the walls, but I needed to WP the upper sections first so I just used good old AD.

Studio 41...but I think I am getting raped. I need to find out if they have better pricing.

The pan and premium installation kit were $1200. $750 for the pan and $550 for the kit. But as far as barrier free, it's an easy install, so I am saving a ton in time. You could install the pan and wp in one day and be tiling the next. Typical pan/shower installs we are not tiling until the beginning of week 2.

Yeah that sounds about right when I consider the exchange rate for what I was paying in the UK. but if its made over here then it should be about $500 not $750. I won't be using them at $750 as that it a tad much.

Here's the prices of the ones I used to use as a comparison. http://www.heatandplumb.com/acatalog/Aquadec_Shower_Trays.html
