Bestbath demonstrates how to install the walls for a five-piece shower. This video is a guide to help ensure proper installation. Before you begin installation, be sure that all the required tools and materials are readily available.

 

Installation steps:

  1. Set the lower back wall in place with the indexing tabs setting into the indexing pockets.
  2. Lower the top back wall into place and screw it into place.
  3. Slide the non-plumbing wall into place. When you hear the SnapJoint engage, the wall is secure.
  4. Cut a hole for the valve in the plumbing wall.
  5. Slide the side plumbing wall into place. When you hear the SnapJoint engage, the wall is secure.
  6. Complete screwing both sidewall flanges into studs every 8 inches.
  7. Use suction cups (provided) to engage walls.
  8. Caulk all of the joints in the shower. Do not caulk over the weep hole.
