Pro Advanced Custom Tile Mud Kit 32 x 60 Offset Drain in ABS or PVC

This kit not only waterproofs the single layer sloped mud floor, but also provides for a seamless waterproofing of most or all of the wall areas, curbs, etc.

Pro Advanced Mud Kit Installation

Rather than utilizing a pre-formed pan, these kits have been created to allow you to easily design and build your own custom pan with a single sloped layer of dry-pack mortar and dictate a customized drain location of your choice. These kits are particularly useful if your shower floor area is not a standard size, drain layout, or will include a complex shape. The kits are far less complicated than traditional sloped mud - rubber liner - sloped mud method that required advanced skills and additional installation time. Pro Advanced Mud kits make it easy for you to create a custom-sloped pan using the dry-pack mortar method with less concrete, less time and complete accuracy.

Advantage! Waterproofing doesn't just end at the pan! This system seamlessly waterproofs from the floor area to the walls and curb barrier as well! The included Quick-pitch sticks help you ensure a quick and easy construction of a correctly sloped dry-packed mud pan.

Compared to older mortar-pan methods that required the tedious labor involved with two sloped floors and a buried vinyl/rubber liner, our modern Pro-Advanced Mud Kit creates a much faster, easier and fool-proof installation that utilizes superior "surface" membrane protection and next-generation drain systems. Continuous membrane protection from the drain throughout the pan area and continuously up the walls prevents not only damaging leaks but also moisture penetration into the walls. No moisture in the walls means no lingering moisture that can cause structural damage over time or fuel mold and mildew problems in the wall tile. Very high-moisture shower enclosures or steam showers can be installed with membrane

  • All the components required to build a fully bonded water tight assembly for tiled showers.
  • Includes the highest quality, most innovative and attractive drain system on the market.
  • Protects floors and wall cavities against water and vapor penetrations.
  • Single layer sloped mud bed using quick pitch sticks allows full customization while reducing weight and installation time.
  • System can use modified thinset for better adhesion, stronger installation and elimination of failure possibilities.
  • You may install glass tiles and other specialty pieces with this system where unmodified thinset systems won't allow for these materials.

Note: You will need to obtain dry-pack mortar mix from your local hardware supply. 4 parts sand - 1 part portland cement is generally recommended.

I recently built a custom tile shower in my master bathroom. (Just to clarify I am not a contractor or construction guy at all, just a weekend warrior “DIY”). After watching a few videos and doing a couple other minor tile jobs around the house I thought I was up for the task. Wow…. was I shocked once I got into this project. I seriously underestimated what this job was going to take and soon realized I may be tearing it all out due to the inferior products I was using.

Luckily after numerous trips to the big box store I checked out Saunders Pro Source Center in Pullman, WA. I only wish I would have found them sooner in the process. No biggie though, they set me on track with their Pro Advanced Custom Shower Kit and stopped me from going any further down a dead end road. This custom shower kit included a waterproof membrane system, drain kit and all the supplies needed to make sure you’re not tearing out your shower a few months down the road. Had I started with this system at the beginning I would have saved a chunk of change and some major stress!!!

Besides the system they offered, I found Saunders to very knowledgeable and willing to provide advice when it came time to perform the install. On top of all that they had all the additional products I needed to complete the job. Saunders PSC is truly a ONE-STOP-SHOP.

UPDATE: Today I have a shower that is simply awesome. It not only looks good on the outside but I know it was built correctly on the inside thanks to Pro Source Center and their Custom Shower Kit!
