Fitting a stone shower tray


Postby jimcars » Fri Dec 12, 2008 4:03 pm

Hi can someone please advise. I am about to fit a stone shower tray in but need to raise to allow for water to drain away. Would 18mm plywood WBP hardwood be right for this job. Is this product suitable for the job as water will be around this area.

Regards Jim.

jimcars,
For the one on concrete form a concrete base with the wast pipe buried in it - allow a large hole around the waste for final positioning. For the one on timber, if you cannot get the waste below floor level, form a timber frame, fit WPB ply top with tray on that.
