Are you ready to have your shower pan hot mopped?

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.”

Ready To Be Hot Mopped

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. If you are ready for your to get your shower pan hot mopped, give us a call at 866-305-4980 or Request a Quote Online.

Recessed Pans For Walk-ins And To ADA Standards

In order to accommodate for the dam-less ADA shower, the floor needs to be recessed enough to fit the preslope, hot mop, and tile (or other material). Also, when dropping the floor, be sure to make clean cuts as it is difficult to create a waterproof seal over uneven surfaces. The floor needs to be recessed all the way against the the backing/bottom plate. For more in-depth discussion about ADA shower prep, read our blog. Are you ready for your hot mop?
