Question about Swanstone CS-1616 Corner Shower Seat, White

1 Answer

Metal bracket with Corner Seat, is it installed prior to tile?

Reference Swanstone CS-1616 Corner Shower Seat:
We are doing a complete renovation of a bathroom. The corner seat is on back order and not due for 3 weeks. I pulled up a installation sheet with a diagram. Verbal instructions did not indicate if after the reinforcement by a 2x6 between studs in the corner were also supplemented with the metal bracket coming with the corner seat...or is it applied after the tile is complete. As I don't have the spec sheets with specific instructions, and this corner seat is to be done after the tile is complete, I am concerned as to whether the metal goes into the wall prior to tile, or not? Anybody out there have any experience installing one of these corner Swanstone seats?

The metal bracket is applied after the tile. That is the reason for the reinforcement between the studs.

We are staying in a rented home with a spa bath. Attached to the spa bath is a hand held shower. The showerhead rests above the bath but the pipe coils somewhere between the tiles and the bath and can be...

The grout between tiles is just for filling the gaps. The tiles are glued to the wall, usually with "thin-set" mortar. Unless that mortar is in very poor condition it is unlikely that you would be able to remove that single tile without breaking it. The wall behind the tile might be water-resistant drywall (a poor quality situation) or it should be cement-board. I suppose it's possible that there is already a hole in the wall behind the tile, but the hole would be smaller than the tile, and assuming 4 inch (not large) tiles, this is a poor choice to gain access to the pipes. The usual access is through the wall from the other side. During initial construction, a removable access panel is sometimes provided (depending on local building codes and whims of the builder). If there is no access panel, and the other side of the wall is drywall, then cutting a generous hole, and fashioning a plywood panel (with trim around the edge to cover the gap between the drywall and the plywood) is a pretty standard and simple approach (depending on your skills). As an alternative and for more info, here's a link describing how to install a plastic snap-in access panel. Good luck!

The shower pan came with no installation instruction, it looked so well designed that I thought it would easily drain fully by just putting it in place. However since I have know completed the project I...

sounds like you will have to remove the tile and shower pan. The pan needs to be level along all walls. Use a level. I had to cut wood shims to support the pan and keep it level before screwing it to the side walls

Could you let me know what i need to do, having fitted a new bath, to tile around the bath.Do I have to make up a frame

make sure the tub has a lip around the two sides and back if you plan to use it as a shower, otherwise you will have water leaks. yes you need to build a standard frame whereever you plan to tile, use green or blue moisture resistant drywall as well. you will need a sturdy base for tile or the grout lines will crack and let moisture in which will eventually cause the tiles to loosen. you can be creative though and build in a shallow shelf to hold things etc. just keep the moisture un mind if it will be a shower and use appropriate flashing if needed.
