I then bought online a vertical spa (overhead shower, four in the wall shower outlets, and a handheld wand) I did hire a contractor to do the plumbing work as it was a nightmare and also to reinforce the floor, I then layed a rubber shower pad on the floor and up the walls about 3 ft. I poured the concrete (mixed it up in buckets and poured it sloping it to the center drain, I also formed up a hump so to speak out of concrete at the opening of the shower to keep the water in, l hung the durarock and layed the tile both on the floor and up the walls, grouted it and sealed it. Works like a dream, I have about $2000 in our bathroom with the vertical spa costing the most.
