Product Details

Mark E 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
  • Use on wood sub-flooring or concrete floors
  • Economical, lightweight non-rotting plastic
  • Prepitch Kit includes 6 float sticks, 1/8" to 7/8" x 36" long
  • Extended Kit includes 4 float sticks, 7/8" to 1-5/8" x 36" long

Works as expected when installed correctly. I've used this product many times with the same success.
