I’m in the midst of a shower reno and whilst I’m not doing it as a DIY job, I’m hoping you folks can help me understand why my shower hob needs to be so high.
I messaged my plumber (who is managing the job) to ask about this and his response was that it needed to be high to hold any moisture that may get under the tiles and that had we done a full reno then we could have had what we were expecting.
I don’t quite understand how the hob will hold water that gets under the tiles, if water is going to do this then isn’t it going to get under the floor of the shower as opposed the the edges of the shower?
The shower that was in there previously was a raised acrylic base shower that had cracked after the previous homeowners had done a dodgy job of having it installed. They also had not waterproofed the walls or shower floor, which we’ve had done as part of our reno.
My plumber is not great at explaining things or replying to things, hence why I am asking here :).
