Re: Shower Pan

re: tile?

The epoxy; both thin-set and grout, would hold. the tile would probably chip, crack and break out. Epoxy tile does not like flex in the substrate at all. The epoxy would flex some; but it is hard enuff for the tile to compress against the grout and chip. Another look at it might be the silicone grouts offered?

Just sayin'

I think the 'fair and paint' is the best/quickest option. Next would be the teak grating.... very nice touch on a boat. Another take is textured, white (roofing) rubber, laid like sheet vinyl (or a roof...huh! )

Lotsa option out there

Re: Shower Pan

We replaced our teak plywood head sole with a Teakflex grate several years ago and are quite happy with it. The grate is comprised of slats that run fore-aft and are screwed and bunged to athwart stringers. We've varnished it for ease of cleaning.

While you are redoing your head, be sure to facilitate scum removal from your sump. Standing gray water can generate some funky smells after a week or two. Our whole grate is removable for this purpose, but is also has a removable section that allow us to readily access the deepest part of the sump.
