The Wedi Fundo Primo shower kit is a fully integrated 100 percent waterproof and mold-proof shower installation system designed with timely assembly and flexibility in mind. Unlike most traditional shower installation methods, the Fundo Primo shower kit uses 'Z-notch connectors' that lock and seal to keep your shower watertight. Thanks to this ingenious design, the floor preparation for tiling that normally takes 2-3 days can now be reduced to 30 minutes, so you can get back to what's most important in your life rather than worrying about contractors, plumbers, and mold inspectors. In addition to a quick installation time, Wedi Fundo Primo is also offered with several drain options to match your building preferences. Choose from a point drain, linear drain, or even custom floor level shower drains to get the most out of your shower kit. The full installation kit comes with a Fundo pan, building panels to cover up 80" of walls, one drain assembly, a full foam curb, joint sealant, fasteners, a putty knife, and even a DVD that guides the installation process.
Per the Robinson Floor Test, in which a machine with rotating wheels and applied pressure is placed on the surfaces of the shower kit, Wedi Fundo Primo is rated for heavy duty commercial use, so you won't ever have to worry about any premature wear and tear on your new waterproof shower. There is also no disintegration or change during freeze/thaw cycling, as well as no potential for bacterial or fungal growth on the shower surfaces. These are all vital components of ensuring that your shower will last many years, without having to go through the laborious process of remodeling yet again. Once the shower kit is installed, the floor element also has no sponginess to it, so if you happen to drop something while you're grouting wall tile for the shower, you won't need to worry about doing irreparable damage to the construction elements. As Wedi has been in the business of manufacturing custom waterproof shower kits for over 35 years, you can rest assured that every single piece that is delivered in your Fundo Primo shower kit box has been fabricated to the premium quality standards to which Wedi has always adhered.
Another great feature about the Wedi Fundo Primo kit is that it can be cut to size or extended to fit the proper dimensions necessary in your bathroom. While doing this with traditional shower installations can at times be labor-intensive, Fundo Primo offers instructions on how to do this so the process can be done with ease. This can be done using a circular saw with a diamond blade or handsaw, both of which can be easily found in nearly any hardware store, so if you are a self-starter and love do-it-yourself (DIY) projects, you will have no trouble at all making sure your shower kit is precisely fit to the dimensions you need.
In addition to Wedi's seamless attention to detail and precision in building quality products, the company is also committed to environmental concerns, so when you buy Wedi you'll know that you won't have to worry about adding to your carbon footprint too much. The polystyrene foam used in the construction of its shower kits are recycled at a rate of 25 percent, and the company refrains from using harmful halogenides altogether. Its automated manufacturing facilities also exclusively use electricity generated from renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, and hydroelectric power.
Perhaps the most outstanding quality of this Wedi shower kit is the Z-notch connectors it uses to make the entire unit watertight. In many other shower installation systems, the box or boxes you order come with a waterproof membrane to keep water from seeping into the ground beneath the tile and grout. While these membranes generally work very well, they can sometimes arrive defective, with tiny pinholes created from mishandling or manufacturing errors, which unfortunately can render the entire membrane useless. With Wedi's Z-notch connectors, you can be sure that the shower is watertight as you put it together rather than having to meticulously inspect every inch of membrane for flaws that could cause major damage to your bathroom long after it is remodeled.
And of course we would like to add one more quick word on DIY remodels and installations. If you don't feel 100 percent comfortable remodeling or installing a shower yourself, it's sometimes better to be safe than sorry by hiring a professional certified installer. This also may extend the warranty on the Wedi Fundo Primo kit if you go this route. If you do feel comfortable doing the job yourself, make sure, as always, to follow all of the instructions carefully provided with their included DVD. Get your bathroom ready with Wedi and start enjoying the shower you've always wanted today.
