SlimLine Double Threshold Shower Base is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect product My contractor was delighted with this product. I had purchased a different brand and when it arrived we realized it wouldn't work. Then found this Dreamline product. It worked perfectly with our "Vigo" shower enclosure. I preferred it to the original Vigo product. It had a lower threshold. The 'diamond pattern' is nice and non-slip. Contractor said the construction eliminated one step for support underneath that he had anticipated. Completely happy with this purchase. (And it was cheaper than the first one I ordered--couldn't return that one but decided the loss was worth it.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just right Instructions to install are good. We decided to use this instead of building our own shower base to save some time. It's not as nice as tile, but will be easier to clean. I'm not sure if we scratched it while installing it or if it came that way, but be careful when fitting it against the bare studs if your tile backer board is already up. If your floor isn't level, pour leveling compound to get it there before throwing down your mud base....it will make the job a lot easier. We also used the DreamLine glass shower enclosure. Absolutely make sure every angle of the base is level so the glass sits properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great! I needed a small shower for a tiny bathroom and this one just fit. It looks great and I couldn't be happier with it. Pallet it arrived on was really broken up so we were worried something was broken but all was well. Do open upon receiving as they ask you to just to be sure it's arrived in good shape.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Attractive base, installation more difficult then should have been I bought this shower base for a remodel I'm performing. I am an amateur when it comes to bathroom remodels but very handy and have had alot of success with other DIY projects on my house. My wife loved the look of this base and it seems to be fairly sturdy for what it is. There are quite a few of these DIY shower base pans on the market with as many different installation processes. I'm a stickler for following instructions so I reviewed the manual thoroughly. As I began the installation, the first thing I found was that the support rings had not been leveled. The pan would "wobble" when placed on the floor. I thought the floor was unlevel at first but using a 48" level quickly showed the floor level and flat (it should have been since I had just replaced it with new subfloor due to previous water damage). Using a straight edge, I gently sanded the rings down until all was level and flush. So, with proper dry fit, time to put some mortar down. However, the manual did not say how much and the diagram was somewhat confusing. I didn't know if the mortar was just to provide lateral support for the rings or does the mortar help to actually support the shower pan base? Called tech support line and was told to "fill in the space between the floor and the pan" and that I should taper the mortar from 3/8" to 5/8" from the drain to the edge. Well, after two attempts, and two 60 pound bags of mortar, I re-evaluated. The instructions say that the pan will have to be "pressed" into place. This is impossible to do with the amount of mortar tech support told me to use. Essentially you would have to apply enough force to "squish" the mortar out from underneath the support rings. Mortar does not flow that easily. So, spoke with some professionals who work in construction. After describing the design of the shower pan (specifically the support rings) they said the mortar is only there to provide lateral support (keep it from moving around) and that only a very thin layer was needed. Followed there advice and my shower pan is now successfully installed. So, to sum up, the shower pan was not level, the instructions were not clear, and tech support was less then helpful. I like the way it looks, but I don't know that I would buy this product from them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice When I first saw this product I was taken a back by the price, I thought that it seemed low and maybe the quality wasnt there. Well I read the reviews and decided to try it and I was not disappointed. I am a contractor and find this to be a real nice base and I matched it with a Dreamline Shower Door which impressed me as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as expected We have installed but have not yet used this shower pan - we are still in the process of tiling. Installation couldn't have been more simple, the pan itself is quite level, and the quality is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made stable shower base There is very little flex in this shower base. For the money it appears to good quality and has a fair amount of weight to it.

hello i am enstalling the dreamline french door shower enclosure , size is the 34.5 x 34.5 what size base will i need ?thank you

Asked by: duftie
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. For the French Corner 34-1/2" size you will need a 36" by 36" double threshold shower base. DreamLine recommends that the base be appx. 2" larger than the shower enclosure because the base is installed to the studs and the enclosure is installed to your finished walls. The correct base is the DLT-1036360. If you have any other questions, please contact a DreamLine PreSales Consultant at 866.282.8413. We are available 9am-6pm EST, M-F and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. You may also send an email to support@dreamline.com or use our “Chat with Expert” feature on DreamLine.com.
