The concept is an excellent idea, the product needs a little work. It was really expensive and it required 2 kits to make it long enough. 30" is not enough for any curbed shower that I can think of. The two kits are suppossed to be able to be attached together, kind of like a puzzle piece. The problem was they didn't fit into each other. I had to shave down the inside piece, all four of them, to be able to get it to work. It also says that there are arrows on top to point to which side is in the shower so that the curb is slanted down to the shower for runoff. This is kind of a moot point though as you have to cut the inside down anyway after the prepitch and then level it out anyway when you pack it with mortar and do the second mortar bed. It was a selling point for me but didn't help at all. you could really have it face either direction and have to fiddle with it just as much to get it right. Other than that, it looks really good, is nice and square and solid once I got the mortar packed in their. It is a little bit more difficult than the video shows you as you have to pack each one of those little rectangles on all three sides with mortar. THe video appeared to have mortar that was too thin for proper mortar mixture.
You do have to be a little handy to use this product. It does what it is supposed to do. The problem I had with it was that it was cheaply made and quite flimsy. However, for the price I paid for it, I couldn't have asked for more. The best way to cut it is to use an angle grinder. You would have some difficulties trying to use a pvc pipe cutter. I didn't want to use a circular saw because I was afraid that it would break the flimsy plastic.
The plastic is very flimsy and the screws easily strip in the soft plastic. would be nice if they included a few more screws to secure the unit to the curb. kind of a pain to go buy stainless steel screws for the front side of the curb. This thing gets the job done but is exspensive
As in the other products in this line, this product is a good idea, but why is it only 30" long? Most shower curbs are a few inches longer, and in any event, I would rather carry the plastic matrix out a bit; on the shower I used it on, I would have extended it about an inch on each side on the interior.
I am a first time female do it yourself person. Doing a concrete/mortar shower pan for the first time was intimidating. This product made doing the curb so much easier and precise. I was worried about everything being level and perfect for the later installation of the shower doors. Everything came out great!!
