Brick Raising of Shower Base over Under Floor Heating

Postby A & E » Mon May 02, 2016 12:58 pm

I have a shower base I need to fit into a very tight space (three sides). The shower base is also going to be over a underfloor heated cement base. Quite a few folk have told me the bathroom should have never been designed with a shower over a section of under floor-heated floor but that is what I now have unfortunately.

The waste and run off plumbing are also above the floor.

I am reluctant to use a wooden frame to raise the shower base as I think it will just end up suffering in what will become a VERY well heated small space.

I was thinking of placing the shower base onto cemented in 'dense blocks'. I would put a layer of backer board over the blocks. Cement on top of the backer board and level the base onto that whilst the cement is wet.

Any thoughts on this strategy? Or any suggestions about a better one? All replies appreciated.
