SlimLine 32 - 60 in. x 30 - 36 in. Single Threshold Shower Base Center Drain and QWALL-5 Shower Backwall Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Joy to Work With As a 74 year old with medium construction skills, I tore out an old bath tub and surround, repaired water damage and installed the DL-6189 SlimLine Shower package. With the exception of having a plumber make the necessary connections to the drain to the shower base, I did all of the work. The DL-6189 was easy to cut to fit with merely a utility blade and straight edge. Assembling the panels was easy - I made sure to over glue and not follow the recommended "S" adhesive pattern provided by the manufacturer. I found the package a joy to work with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great base - aggravating wall panels I do a lot of bathroom remodels. This shower base is well made, very sturdy. The wall panels had to be reinstalled 3 times because they would not stick to the walls. I learned that you need to use thick & sticky caulking. Use 2 tubes per side and 3 on the back. Be heavy handed with the glue, applying it only on the grout lines. Silicone is too creamy. The reason it won't stick is that the only portion of the panels that touches the walls are the tile grout lines.They are pressed into the face of the panels and stick out the back.

I have this shower base and kit. I want to pull the plastic walls down and either use tile for the walls or a direct to stud shower surround. Can I use this same base?

Asked by: Derekp
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. Yes, you can use tile on your walls with this shower kit and base. We do not recommend its use with a direct to stud surround, however. A direct to stud surround is molded and may not meet the requirements for installation of the shower door that you choose. 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.

What portion of this can be installed direct to studs? Just the base or the walls as well?

Asked by: EAS814
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The base is installed to the studs. You will then install backer board to the top of the flange on the base. After that, you will install your walls to the backer board using Liquid Nails 715 or 915 adhesive that has been troweled out on the back of the panel. If you have any other questions, please contact a DreamLine PreSales Consultant at 866.282.8413. We are available 9am-6pm EST, Monday through and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Do the shower enclosure panels interlock or is the seal between them entirely dependent upon silicone caulking?

Asked by: Prince
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The panels are not interlocking. There is a cover over the seam that will be caulked.
