Shower Bases: Brands to recommend, Brands to avoid?

Wayne Reibold

I was pretty sold on buying a Jacuzzi brand shower base 42" L x 36" D until an online retailer who sells Jacuzzi brand recommended against them saying they have quality control issues and are thin. So now I'm concerned.

Anyone have info to share of brands they recommend? brands to avoid? Who makes a good quality shower base? It's very difficult to find these in stores, I end up relying on pics on the internet and am concerned.

I'm also seeing some cheaper ones with "Gel Coat" then an upcharge for Acrylic. I have no idea what "Gel Coat" is or if I should avoid it.

Any info would be helpful!
