My parents have a leaking, plastic, shower basin with a center cut drain. I would love to just replace it but, nobody seems to make a rectangular shower basin with a center cut drain (at least I haven't been able to find anyone who does). The basin itself is cracked radiating out from the drain, There also seems to be an excessive amout of give around the drain sugesting there's been some erosion of the supporting material, (I have a concrete foundation so I hope it's just a wood beam or shim support). Finally, as you may have guessed, because of the support problem the bassin's low point is about
3/4" below the drain cover.
At this point I'm thinking about pouring a concrete basin. I'm not sure I really want to go that route but it's all i've been able to come up with.
Does anyone know where I can find a rectangular shower basin with a center drain...?
If NOT, could someone give me some other options, OR advice on forming a concrete shower basin?
