: could you tell me the difference between the lead type shower pans and the plastic/pvc shower liners?
: i'm redoing my shower and the plumber wants to use the pvc liner , i was thinking it would be a lead pan. is this a problem? do i need to be insistent for the lead or are they equally good?
: thanks, lyn.
Check to find out exactly what is required in your area. Some municipalties required only lead or copper shower liners to be installed. Vinyl pans are acceptable to use if allowed. As with any shower liner, the installer should plug the drain and fill the pan with water to the level of the curb (step) and let it sit overnight before any restoration work beigins.
Good Luck. e-plumber
