    Oops, your post got cut off a bit so not really sure what "This she lose...." means? It did attract my attention as I didn't know what a Schluder Sysem was but assume you've researched the Schluter System site which provides great info for making a decision...slanted of course toward Schluter :)

    Hope this helps, if not, let us know what we're missing okay. We want to help you! :)

    I have seen these installed by This Old House. They're always promoting new products and concepts. Looks like a good system. You get everything you need to install and instructional DVD. The foam panels are tapered for the application. The surface fibrous fabric gets as hard as fiberglass once cured. Totally waterproof. Saves a lot of installation time and work. Cost is a major factor. They are expensive.

      Thank you very much! They are expensive! But, I have not priced out the traditional showers yet.

    Personally if I was doing a complete bath gut remodel I would give this system a try. Especially expanding or putting in a shower where there was none.
