I live in an old house with a 30x30 inch shower pan and tile walls. I need to replace the shower pan but can't seem to fine anything smaller than a 32x32. I've checked the major stores and searched online. Moving a wall is not an option since a toilet is immediately on the other side.

What are some possible options? The shower is upstairs, if that makes a difference. I worry about putting tile in its place because of floor instabilities and such. It'd be nice to find a replacement somewhere.

I do not know what part of the planet you are located BUT in civilized states any 5th year apprentice can make a 30 x 30 shower pan as min by code is 900 Sq in.

It does not take a rocket scientist to buy a piece of sheet lead 4 PSF fold the corners so you have a 4" flashing and folded over the threshold.

Then install a NO HUB JR Smith shower drain with adjustable strainer

Thanks for the info. You have to understand, I've never even had a reason to look into any of this before, so I don't know much about sheet lead and such.

These are the kind of options I need to hear about before deciding what to do and filling in the details.

As it is, I'm beginning to think that I'll have to redo some of the sub-flooring and reinforce around the space. What concerns are there in regard to the sub-floor when using sheet lead?

1- Sheet lead pan

2- Terrazzo base also made in 30" x 30" quite expense but saves the labor cost of custom made lead pan AND Terrazzo is quite heavy

3- fiberglass pans / Acrylic type

4- some new plastic /rubber types

Why cant you understand he (Sylvan) is a wealth of information and the only douche bag is possibly your mother as she raised a blooming idiot

What information other then spewing about how many "Johns" your mother had on this list?

Very few people ever take the time to say thank you they think it is coming to them

I agree Sylan is a douche bag. A question was asked and no answer was given. The guy wants to replace a shower pan, not hire someone to do it. I also am looking for a 30x30 and am having a hard time finding one. Sylan you need to get over yourself. I will not be coming back here to read your stupid reply so don't bother. As to the original poster google is your friend. But not a very good one in this case. There just aren't that many pans that size out there.

Sylan is a total Douche! I agree. It was a simple question.
I'm not a carpenter or a plumber. I'm just trying to re-do an old bathroom. I wanna buy the dumb shower pan and move on. I don't need a whole new project of trying to fabricate my own.
