    Personally I would go with the black rubber adapter (the kind with a big hose clamp on each end) because AFAIK that's exactly what they were designed for.

    There should be instructions on the Swanstone website. I specifically eschewed Swanstone because I could not get the exact size for my alcove.

    I ended up finding a drop-in fit with a white $15 one at Home Depot.

    I'm all for the prefab shower bases or "receptors" as they are sometimes called. There is quite a variety in the sizes.

    Hey, I have the exact same thing in my old shower pan. I just received a new Sterling Ensemble shower kit (base and walls) and it doesn't come with that part (I'd call it a shower drain but I don't...

    Drain size considerations aside, if you're going shower-only, why don't you do the kits that come with the base and walls?

    It appears that you can get this if you use their special order system. Most manufacturers offer the screw stops preinstalled on the valve for like ~$10-20 extra. However, woe unto him who must...
