working with plastic bathtub and shower enclosures
Some of these plastic showers use extremely thin materials and need to be very careful when dealing with them. I have seen them broken, fragmented and broken and when this happens you need to either return the damaged product or buy a new one. Most home improvement centers have good displays or pictures of plastic showers in their stores. Their display usually looks great, and even the picture of the product packed on the box, seems to give an elegant look to most plastic bathtubs and showers. You go to your favorite home improvement center and buy a product that looks easy to assemble and requires only a few tools. Before you leave the store, make sure you have purchased the right adhesive and backing for the bathtub or shower. Most home improvement center reps or house plumbing supply warehouse staff can help you, just ask. I do not recommend buying gypsum based products that are not mildew proof or waterproof for your back panel. For those who don\'t know what the back panel is, it\'s a building material that can be nailed to the wall of the bathroom. This backing will be connected to a plastic shower or bath case. The last thing I want to say when using plastic bath or shower products is to be careful if you have to cut them. Most of these products recommend using a razor, but when using a sharp tool knife, I have actually cut off the cracked parts of these shells. I recommend using a pair of scissors, I have had a huge success and suggest testing the scissors first by cutting a part of the plastic case that you will not use.
