It all depends on what type of liner is used. If you use a standard chloraloy liner then the liner should be installed under the Quikpitch sticks. If you use a paint-on liner like Laticrete Hydroban the Quickpitch should be installed first and then the liner is painted on top. We have links next to the pictures with the installation instructions and videos on the installation. If you have more questions please call (800) 709-0002.
Mark E. Industries Quick-Pitch Floor Drainage Kit
Permanently installed screed guide for shower floors, tile tubs, and fountains. Guarantees a proper slope for drainage with no error in measurement or the need for a laser or level.
- A center ring is placed over the drain and the tapered float sticks are attached leaving you with a perfect 1/4" fall per 12" run
- Standard center ring for round drain covers
- Square drain covers require the universal center ring. We recommend purchasing the extra float sticks with the universal center ring for square drain cover applications
- Standard Kit (QPK-101) - Fits 3 ft x 5 ft showers
- Extra Float Sticks (XFS-101.2) - Contains 4 sticks- These are necessary for larger areas for screeding purposes.

These ʻextrasʼ are generally needed for use in custom shower areas with either curved, or more than four walls.

Question & Answers
The Quick Pitch Standard Kit includes the smaller center ring for round drains. If you are using a square drain the Universal center ring is sold separately. We recommend the extra sticks because the smaller center ring included with the Quickpitch Standard kit is not needed when using the universal center ring.
Unfortunately, the longest length available for the Mark E Quick Pitch with the extension is 72" from the drain. The pitch would have to be continued without the assistance of the sticks.

It is a great invention to float and have showers have the right slope, works well in irregular showers too. just follow the mixing instructions for the concrete mix it is very important to have the mix dry.
makes it easy to install a custom shower stall like a pro
I thought it was great, it made the job so much easier and faster. Also made the job better looking. We will be sure to use it on the next shower we have to install. Thanks.
