    Which is better riser kit or plywood base.

    I have been let down by my fitter and and have no bathroom I now have the nightmare of a living room full of bathroom units,boxes, timber and sheets of ply. The bathroom has been ripped out ready but I am now going to have to do the job myself and need shower tray installed asap. I have a JT Fusion Quadrant which the fitter was going to install on a 4x2 timber and 18mm ply platform.

    I note that the tray has also been designed to be put up with a riser kit which will be easier. If I use this this can I also prop up with the timber to strengthen it.

    If I put it on a plywood base will the tray not move around as there is nothing fixing the tray apart from a weak bed of mortar which I presume will break down in time.

    Please help.

    If your tray has been designed for use with a riser kit then go for it. Just make sure the floor in the areas where the feet stand is solid.

    I've used the fusion riser kit and it works well. As has been said, make sure the floor it stands on is solid. I put down an 18mm ply pad over the boards and stood on that. Using the riser kit makes plumbing easy.
