Shower Pan Flex
Need counseling/advice, please. I'm am in the midst of remodeling 2 bathrooms. Two fiberglass tub/shower combinations pulled out and replaced by acrylic shower pan and tiled walls. My number one request was that I didn't want flex in the shower pan. Contractor said there would not be flex. Not in writing, of course. Silly me, so of course there is flex in the first shower pan installed. He set the second one in a mud base--no flex. Says flex in first bath is small and not really a problem. So, I went to shower pan instructions on line which clearly state pan should be set in mud. My question (finally!) -- is this a big deal? Will it cause problems down the road? What should I do? I've told him I'm not pleased with the flex but thought I could live with it. Should I make him rip it out and start over? Not a pleasant idea for either of us. Help!
