We put together a few photo galleries to help you determine if you are ready to have your shower pan hot mopped.
If you are still not sure you can download our free “Hot Mop Preparation Guide.”
The photos above are examples of shower pans that are ready to be hot mopped. All walls need to be blocked a minimum of 10″ from the pan floor and be constructed of solid material with no gaps. We recommend 2×10″ wood planks or 20 gauge metal sheeting. For showers with benches, we recommend 4-6″ of blocking where the bench meets the wall. Dams need to be 2″ above the height of the drain, and we require 2-piece drains. For more detailed information, please download our Prep Guide
