Shower pan

Hi,
We have a 2015 Flagstaff with a cracked shower pan. It's made of recycled plastics and it's super thin and flimsy. No warranty because we are second owners. From my perspective, if I have to replace it, I would like to go with fiberglass, If I can find one. Any ideas? ]Does anyone know if this can possibly be repaired. The cracks is very straight and about 4" long.

It's probably ABS which I think you can find some specialty epoxy or adhesives to do it but, probably not in place and it wouldn't be pretty. The only other thing that comes to mind would be a gusset of aluminum or stainless (patch) to reinforce and pop rivet it in. It will either work or you can guess the alternative. If it were me, I'd look for the new pan that fit and and foam it in with Great Stuff since you know where the weak spots showed up. My shower ( looks like yours)had significant flex around the drain area floor, which I took care of last year, knock on wood, been good so far. Drain setup kind of looked like the photos in previous post on the thread. Just my $ .02 worth. Good luck, clue us in how you resolved issue.

OK now are the cracks located in the "Unsupported area" of the Pan? Drain hole area? Is/Was the pan floor like a "Trampoline"? Are the cracks located where there is NO plywood/styrofoam to support it? Youroo!!

In our old class C we had a sagging shower pan. I drilled a few small holes in side of pan and used Great Stuff expanding foam. I did put a small PT barrier around drain and just let foam fill in area. Used a fiberglass repair kit to repair holes and crack. Added the fiberglass tape to stress crack area then covered with fiberglass patch compound. Painted entire pan with almond colored epoxy appliance spray paint. Was still in great shape 6 years later when we sold it.

there is not enough support around the drain.. i can see, but where it's cracked , not visible from accessing panel. but it has to be a support issue. It broke with my wife she is about 109 lbs. maybe a little flimsy but not something I felt. The material is just not up to the task..

Adding to memory to check
