    Hi everyone. I just removed a shower tray and this is what I found underneath, does it look like a conventional way of installing it?

    Manufacturers instructions are the correct way to install anything, gas boilers, baths, toilets etc.

    looking at your pictures, it looks like a supported flat base, with gaps/ access to drainage and waste fittings.

    so, yes, it looks normal, some ask for screed or silicone, some just a flat base.

    some only support the middle of the tray, some the edges,

    good luck

    It's certainly the conventional method adopted by so many general builders whom dabble in a bit of bathroom fitting, thats for sure.
    They lack any attention to detail to undertake such tasks. If only they'd stick to playing with blocks, bricks, and muck then this kind of travesty wouldn't happen so often.
    I bet the silicone sealing the tray was as thick as your forearm too.
