I have a client that is interested in a precast shower pan. She saw something on the east coast while traveling there but was not able to name it. I have used Florestone terrazzo shower pans a few times but they are not readily available here in the northwest--they are made in CA and the shipping up here is significant. So I'm curious, what other similar products are out there that might be considered? I am aware of the acrylic/FG stuff, the cast iron pans from Kohler, etc., and that's about it.

Yes I will talk to the folks at the big plumbing wholesalers, but wondered what ya'll here might be aware of.

Pans are available made of Corian, Swanstone, and Silestone. You can probably see these online and get the name of a local distibutor.

They used to be availabel but are a pain in the
butt ...... I wont touch one....

very heavy,,,,, and can chip and crack
during shipment.....

and their life span is 30 --40 years....

I just took a terrazo shower base out of my 1965 home....

The true terrrzo pans have a metal tile flange around them. That will rust away in about 15-20 years.
