replacing an old shower

We need to replace an old shower. If we get one from somewhere like Home Depot, we have been told they leak. We can't get a premolded one because it will not fit through the door. We don't really want to tile it. Any suggestion or ideas?
Thanks, John

A remodel stall will have either 3 or 4 pieces (the pan and either 2 or 3 wall panels). Once these pieces are in the the bathroom, where they will then be assembled, they won't leak IF they are assembled properly. The better units have lips that interlock and not allow water to go any place other than back into the pan. Just make sure you use a good silicone caulk during the assembly. I have put in 15 or 20 and have never had a leakage problem, but then I don't install the $75 variety either.

Thanks for the encouragement. The showers we are looking at start at $200 for a 32" and look pretty flimsy to us. Can you suggest a few places to look beside Home Base or Home Depot?
