Product Description

The wedi Fundo Primo Shower System is a complete kit with all the necessary materials for a wedi shower installation. It features a point drainage solution with a square drain grate and is suitable for fast and safe renovation and new construction installations. Primo is internally waterproof due to the wedi XPS foam's closed cell structure and naturally protects against mold or mildew like every wedi XPS foam based product. It is easy to cut wedi foam to fit custom designs while the level of prefabrication reduces installation time significantly.

The shower floor unit features a strong and pre-sloped wedi foam surface which can be tiled over immediately with anything from mosaic size to large format tile. The drain unit and drain cover set is included with each Primo shower floor unit, while further optional drain cover designs are available. Pre-sloped extension panels are also available so that virtually no limit exists for making any size or shape for custom shower designs happen.

The added values offered by Fundo Primo come in the form of many more performance advantages. Fundo Primo has insulating properties keeping surfaces warmer; especially when compared to traditional mortar bed installations or other currently known methods for building showers such as those including use of sheet – or liquid waterproofing membranes. wedi Fundo Primo's simplicity and high performance makes it the highest quality shower installation system on the market, while greatly decreasing time and effort required for install.

Fundo Primo adds speed, safety and consistency to your installation: Measure, cut if necessary, thinset to subfloor, connect drain, and you are done. The most unique advantage, however, is the complete waterproofing inherent in wedi products.

Product Questions & Answers

Q: I want to use a 48" x 60" base but my existing drain is located 17'" from one side and 21" from the other. What do you suggest I do?
A:
You just need to cut off 3" from one side and cut 7" from the other side to make it fit. No problem to cut these bases to fit your project.
Customer Support answered on June 28, 2017
Q: I need a 36"x60" base with offset dran. Can I cut off 12" of the 36"x72" shower base?
A:
Yes. On a center drain you would cut down from both sides but on offset drain you can make a cut just on one side to maintain the offset drain in the same position. Make sure you maintain the lip on the edge, the wedi video will show you how to cut on the shower base.
Customer Support answered on February 9, 2018
Q: What's the shipping time if it's not in stock
A:
5 to 6 business days in most cases.
Customer Support answered on February 15, 2018
Q: My shower is 40 x 45 and I'd need the drain to located in the corner. What should I purchase?
A:
wedi does not make a product with a corner drain. Your best option is to build a mud pan and custom order a linear drain from Laticrete with hook up in corner then at least it would be easier to float. Please feel free to give us a call and we can talk about your project. 800-938-7925.
Customer Support answered on March 5, 2018
Q: Do you have to use a curb for a 48” x 60 base?
A:
Unless your floor is recessed you would have to use the curb, because you have the edge of foam. Please give us a call and we can talk about your design ideas. You may want a product like the Wedi Fundo Ligno, which is a curbless shower base. 800-938-7925
Customer Support answered on March 30, 2018
Q: I have a 48"x 66" opening. Can I just cut 6" off (72") one end or do I have to remove 3" from both ends in order to maintain the proper drain slope?
A:
We generally recommend cutting 3" off each side, as that would center the drain if that works for your installation. If your drain location is limited, you may cut the base as needed to so the drain hole in the base lines up with the drain without affecting the slope, which is constant from the edge to the drain hole.
MWI Customer Service answered on March 31, 2018
Q: What type or mortar is used underneath the pan? And do you sell it?
A:
Most modified thin-sets are appropriate for use under Wedi shower pans. We carry a wide variety,
MWI Customer Service answered on April 4, 2018
Q: Do you have to use the curbs on these kits? Or can I cut my floor down to make it even? We just found out my wife has ALS and we need a roll in shower.
A:
The curb-less shower kit is called the wedi Fundo Ligno. We carry that as well. It is not available in kit form, but if you tell us which size shower pan you need, we can provide a list of additional items to complete the shower.
MWI answered on August 14, 2017
Q: Does the 30" x 60" shower system come with a right hand drain that will fit an existing drain that has approx. dimensions of 16" x 10" ?
A:
The 36" x 60" kit is designed to fit where a tub used to be, and hook into the existing drain (16" x 10" from walls). Note, there is no 30", only 36" x 60".
MWI answered on August 16, 2017
Q: Do you offer a off set drain in the 36 x 60 kit?
A:
Wedi does not make a 36 x 60 off set, I would suggest the 36 x 72 off set and cut the length to size, remembering to put the lip back on the edge.
Customer Support answered on June 19, 2018
Q: Do you guys offer the 36x36 kit?
A:
Yes, just added, you can order and it will ship direct from the factory.
Customer Support answered on July 19, 2018
Q: can you cut the curb to from a corner?
A:
Yes, you will want to seal the cut line with wedi sealing tape and joint sealant.
Customer Support answered on July 19, 2018
Q: I would like to install a 36 x 60 kit. That's the size of the opening. I also want to include a bench. Does the bench install on top of the base?
A:
Yes the benches install on top of the shower bases, Wedi also makes suspended shower seats that attach to the wedi board walls. Check-out Wedi's YouTube Channel for some great demo videos on shower installations for tips.
Customer Support answered on December 6, 2017
Q: How "deep" does the 5” hole to be cut in the subfloor around the drain need to be? I may have a clearance issue if deeper than my 1-1/4" floor.
A:
What drain set up do you have?
Customer Support answered on December 28, 2017
Q: The 36" x 72" offset drain kit it shows the base being angled on all four sides. My question is can you use larger (1' X1') or larger tile?
A:
Yes, you can use larger tiles on these, you would just want to make the cuts where the angles in the slope change, see the diagrams of the pans in pictures.
Customer Support answered on January 16, 2018
Q: Will this system fit the old tub location 30" x 60" with a kerb at least 4" high. I need the 3 side panels to be 8' tall?
A:
The wedi 36" x 60" kit could be cut down to fit the 30" location but only comes with enough wedi board to cover 3 80" walls, and the foam lean curb is 3-1/2" tall. Might be better to buy the pieces that you need separately.
Customer Support answered on June 28, 2017
Q: whats the longest this can be extended to? I have a client with a 96"x56" shower.
A:
They don't make it in the kit but they do make a 50" x 72" base with center drain and you could add a 24" base extension making 96". Look under our listing: Wedi Fundo Primo Shower Bases with Drain Assembly.
Customer Support answered on July 30, 2017
Q: If the base is trimmed to a custom size, does it then need to be routed to restore the dovetail?
A:
Yes, It does need to be channeled, Copy and paste this link into your browser for a wedi video to show you how to do it. https://youtu.be/X1GLQDPIA-E
Customer Support answered on July 24, 2017
Q: Do I need to purchase extra Wedi sealant with this kit?
A:
You don't need to purchase extra tubes of Wedi sealant in most cases, however if you tend to be very sloppy, an extra tube wouldn't hurt.

Good Product, arrived on time intact
It is being installed by a contractor, who is impressed with it. He said he will purchase more if he has any more bath rooms to remodel. four star review is because of the high shipping cost.

Great Product. Easy Service.
Easy to install. Wedi videos online made it easy to tackle this project as a DIY. The hardest part was getting it off the truck.

Cutomer Service
I haven't installed the Wedi shower kit yet, but it arrived promptly and the package in ok shape. Upon opening the box I discovered the 5' ft curb broken into 4 pieces. I called Master Wholesale and they immediately shipped out a replacement (3 day air). The replacement also came broken. I can't say enough good about how they handled replacing the 2nd broken curb.
Today I received the new curb, also 3-day air in a heavily secured packaging unbroken. Hats off to all the people at Master Wholesale! They truly are a company that cares about you after the sale. By the way I live in Pa, so I know it cost $$$ to ship these replacements.

Easiest way to form up a shower
Absolutely wonderful, easiest way to form up a shower. Fast and secure, forming a totally waterproof shell. From bare concrete and studs to tiling in less than 6 hours. Have used this kit multiple times with outstanding results. Would highly recommend.

Not cheap but worth it
I've installed 3 wedi showers at this point, and while they aren't cheap, the quality is worth it. The installs are so much faster. Save yourself the headache, wedi is the real deal.
