The pan naturally bows in a concave fashion with the drain area being the lowest point due to the solid surface on the top of the pan and waffled structure on the bottom. This is beneficial because the drain portion of the pan is forced to sit tight to the drain support block after the perimeter screws are installed.
What if the pan is bowing the opposite way?
This would be a very rare occurrence, but the answer is to simply add weight (like a bag of thin-set) to the drain area of the pan while continuing your work. Leave weight on pan for 24 hrs before tiling. You can also screw through the pan around the perimeter of the drain recess. See next FAQ for details.
The pan can be predrilled and screwed anywhere outside of the recessed drain flange. Simply cover the screw heads with SeeLIT joint tape and waterproofing according to the SeeLIT installation instructions.

Yes, use Modified Thin-set.
Our largest bases are 5x5 & 4x6. You can use our ExtendIT-Mini pitch fillers to gain an additional 3” on each side. If your shower needs to be larger yet, we recommend using two pans side by side. This also increases the amount of GPMs of water your shower will be able to handle.
Typically, we recommend 2”x2” or smaller but the larger bases can handle 4”x4” or even larger depending on the expertise of the tile installer. Any size tile can be used when cutting the pitch lines in for an envelope cut detail.
