After that, rinse the area off with drinking water to avoid the acidic vinegar damaging your bathroom tile problems.
The real key to shower pan installation is to build a waterproof floor that moves water rapidly to the drain with no leaks. Also the floor must be sealed properly to the walls.

Do not take a verbal estimate; this could lead to a lot of extra charges later on which you weren’t expecting. It is important to be aware of the up front costs, and anything that can happen to add in more costs. For your security, obtain everything in writing. A reliable handyman will be willing to give you everything in written form. Any person reluctant to do this, must not be hired, unless you have known them for a long time.
