Schluter floor pan for drain that Isn't centered

Planning on a full bathroom remodel of my master bath this fall. The plan is to tear out the 80s blue fiberglass shower stall (made by Aqua Glass) and build a new stall using Schluter products. My main issue is the drain on my current shower is located near the wall where the shower valve is located, similar to where a tub drain is located.

The pre-fab floor pans by Schluter seem to be all made with the drain in the center. I could go with a trough drain in this location, but can't seem to find any photos of a pre-fab Schluter linear drain floor pan. Is this something Schluter would have to custom make or do you just get a large piece of sloped Schluter floor pan and cut it and piece it in so it slopes towards the linear drain from both sides?

I can't move the current drain location without tearing up the floor or the kitchen ceiling below. Neither one is an acceptable option. I also don't want to do a mortar bed, rubber membrane or hot mop application, so in essence I'm looking for a simple solution and the Schluter system seems to be the best option if I can get the drain issue worked out.

Thanks for any suggestions or links to photos of a similar project.

Did you ask Schluter sales if they have such a floor with an offset drain? E L Mustee could be an alternative to Schluter.

Haven't got to that point yet. Figured I'd check here to see if somebody had first hand experience with a similar issue.

Once the old shower is out, it is relatively easy to lift a piece of subfloor and move the drain to where it needs to be. Finding a match for your current location of the drain will take far more time and effort than placing the drain where it needs to be.

Thanks, But Won't Work

czizzi,

Thanks for the reply, but that suggestion won't work. A center drain shower pan will fall directly onto a floor joist and I am not hacking out a section of the floor joist.

I'll probably just send the measurements to Schluter and see what they suggest.
