Standard Pre-Pitch Kit
  • Pre-Pitch is a unique, stay in place screeding tool designed for use underneath shower pan liners.
  • Pre-Pitch is a unique tool that creates the proper sub floor slope (1/4" per ft.) needed underneath the pan-liner to manipulate the water towards the weep holes that are integral part of shower floor drains.
  • By having a pitch under the pan liner, water that passes through the mud bed is now directed to the weep holes instead of being trapped between the mud bed and the liner.
  • This 'ponding' or collection of water is where many mold and mildew related issues originate.
  • Easily cut with hacksaw, PVC cutters or grinder.

Question & Answers

The Pre pitch has a 1/4" drop per foot for proper draining and the Quick pitch has 1/4" per foot for proper draining so compounding the two is a 1/2" drain slope is this correct? and does this system still present a overall good visual effect after finished and tiled installation?

No. The Quick Pitch Center Ring rests on top of the flange bolts of the drain which raises the system up to allow for water to flow to the weep holes and compensate for the Pre-Pitch eliminating the doubling of the pitch. ��Yes, it will give good visual effect after finished and tiled installation.

Will the 3 in 1 Standard shower kit work with removing bath tub leaving drain where it is, building shower in place of bath tub?

Yes, with the 3 in 1 Standard shower from Mark E Industries you can replace a bathtub with a shower without moving the drain location. With the extension kit, the prepitch and quick pitch can extend to 72". All sticks can be cut to the proper length.

Great product[...].

by - verified purchaser
It was great to find a complete package for preparing a tile shower pan. The second kirb perfect wasn't needed, but that's with my application. Still, this was the best price I found. The manufacturer's instructions were vague so be sure to educate yourself on the entire install process. [@] has good instructional videos.

Well worth the money!

by - verified purchaser
I'm a tiling contractor and sometimes have to build custom shower pans. This product makes doing pans really easy. I love doing muds pans with this system. It's actually fun! I would recommend getting extra float sticks and/or using a really long trowel. If you're in the business of doing shower pans, save your leftover sticks to use in the future. The only thing I'm not totally pleased with is if you have to trim down the curb. If you have to cut off an end, you loose your screw secured curb on that side. They should make more holes in the curb if you need to screw it together in another place besides the very ends of the curb. Also the self stick adhesive tape for the sticks for the pre-pitch (when doing it over concrete), doesn't stick well on concrete. I would recommend using some type of caulk or liquid nails to better secure the pre-pitch sticks to concrete. Another little thing that bothered me is how it is packed in the box. If all the pieces are jammed in, the curb pieces tend to flex and then when you screw them together, they're slightly off. But in all honesty, it doesn't make that much of a difference. Just wanted to mention it.

Great kit for DIYers

by - verified purchaser
If you must do your shower slope by your self and do not have a lot of money to spend on a liner, this is the best option. It requires some valor on your part since you will need to do some "mudding" and finishing but if you take your time to do it right this will ensure you get a good foundation for your shower drain and slope.

Makes creating your own shower pan easy.

by - verified purchaser
A great product for getting the proper slope to your shower floor. The only drawback I found was that, while the kit comes with 6 sticks, you really need 8 to do it properly.

Great product that saves a lot of time

by - verified purchaser
worked great, but I would reccommend the kit having 8 pitch sticks intead of 6 standard. also needs to have a way of connecting the 45 angle when making an "L" shaped kirb on concrete floors without a wood kirb to nail to. I hot glued mine together and nailed a 2x4 to the slab on the outer edges for support.

Great for custom tile showers!!

by - verified purchaser
Easy to use. As stated by manufacturer, makes showers nearly goof proof. Great instruction video on the manufacturer's website. Only con is the pre pitch and quick pitch should include 8 sticks instead of 6. Most showers need 8 to make it so you can cover the whole shower pan area.

Great Kit

by - verified purchaser
Contractor's Direct is great. Very quick with delivery. Shower kit worked very well. Wish it contained two more on the quick pitch sticks (8 versus 6).

Works great!

Great product. There are good install videos online, which are really essential for beginners. If your shower pan has 45% angles, buy extra sticks for both pre-pitch and quick pitch. You will need them. 6 is not enough.

Works great!

by - verified purchaser
This worked out great. I removed a bathtub and 2 small closets to make a large shower 5X5. This kit and the extenions that I ordered was just enough. I had the tub drain that I was able to move about 4" more to the center from the one corner. I could of used about 2 more sections. But I did not want to buy a whole kit for 2 so I just free handed the gaps. It really does make the job alot easer. I will buy again when I remodle my master bathroom next. By the way I used it on a concret slab first level. Watch the videos if you need help they will guide you all the way.
