I used window foam under my shower stall installed in my basement back in 1988 and still maintaining a firm support for the shower stall Floor. I did have to reseal the drain with plumbers putty this year. In my walk through life I spent most of it in all areas of construction now Retired Clerk Of The Works / On Site Engineer In Charge after almost 30 yrs on the job. I am and always have been a user of expansion foam for correcting or utilizing it as a versitle material for construction.

This sounds as if you have a venting problem if there is no air introduced into system then it cannot drain,even with a pressure pump system,the only other thing is that the pump and grinder system is faulty,if still under warranty contact mftr.

no, they are designed to require no support. You may use small columns of expansion foam for added strength, but do not fill entire space with foam as it will raise the whole floor upon expansion.

Hello. Just go to home depot or lowes and get 2-3 spray cans of expandible foam. If you have acces to the opening between the floor and shower floor spray it around the gap. If not, Just use a small drill bit and make some holes around the wood frame and spray it. These foam will secure the shower and also will prevent the shower floor to crack it.

What product should i use to put under my shower base before i set it. that would make the base feel more solid.

The foaming polyurethane in a can (usually referred to as "Great Stuff") is a really good solution here. Just spray it on the floor and quickly set your base, or if possible and the sheetrock is not on you can set the shower and reach in under it and foam
