There are so many ways to get to the same results!!! Making sure that your shower pan holds water, and drains correctly, especially when it reaches the waterproofing!
Hot mopping is the one with the longest track record in history!
Choosing the right company to do your shower pan,and do it right is important, an average shower of 10 minutes can use up to 20 gallons of water! Over a year that a lot of water far more than the exterior of your house or even your roof! Hot Mopping a shower pan is a specialized skill, and its application by a skilled mechanic is essential! Espically when you are doing that bathroom remodel, we have always addressed the needs to service the remodeling industry while still being able to keep pace with the production work! Clean and neat with proper preperation on your remodel is a must with our employees.
Remember “water in and water out” thats the formula for a properly made shower pan!
Tile and grout are not waterproof or meant too be. All the water that falls to the shower pan needs to be directed to the drain. The floor surface material what ever it may be, tile, stone, slab, pebble, or slab, with a 2% slope will channel most of the water to your drain.
Think of your shower pan like a body of water or better yet a river, water flows down hill but at the same time soaks in the earth below…same in your shower pan…water penetrates the surface through the finished surface and grout joints, through the dry pack mortar bed, and reaches the bottom, which unlike the “river bed” we don’t want the water to soak in the “earth” and give water to the surrounding country side ( which in our homes would be our finished and sub wood floors, our carpet, our baseboard, the list can be large on just what water intrusion can damage! which is why the need for a top quality waterproofing material in your shower pan… it is the barrier that keeps the “river flow” from damaging the surrounding building materials and finished surfaces in your home!
Using the river analogy you can see how important the shower pan waterproofing is…and all the steps needed to make sure it is done right!!!
