Assuming we have our drain lined up, the actual hook up is fairly simple. The drainage pipe should be facing vertical up to the collector. It will often look like a "U", which means it acts as a cleanout to keep nasty smells from coming back up from the drain. To connect the drain, you are going to create a water tight connection between a drain cap on the top of the pan and the drainage pipe. Systems vary, but you are typically going to do this by putting a coupling piece on the top of the drainage pipe. This is then covered with gaskets and literally screwed into the drain cap. The drain cap should act as a locknut, to wit, it screws directly onto the coupling.
To get the most coverage for your tub or shower, I recommend applying a non slip adhesive bath mat to the surface. This provides the most amount of slip resistance and helps eliminate any worries about areas not being covered. Adhesive bath mats come in different sizes such as 16" x 34", 16" x 40" with drain cut out or a 24" x 24" shower mat with drain cut out. As with the above mentioned styles, colors are usually white, clear or almond.
The tempered glass in steam showers should be at least 5mm thick. Most steam showers have 6mm glass this is something you should ask about before purchasing the shower. Thinner glass has a much higher risk of breaking.
Irrespective of the type of shower curtain you own, be it vinyl, plastic, or fabric, they all tend to collect a film of soap scum along with body oils after a certain period of time. This scum needs to be dealt with on a regular basis. In fact, there is nothing grosser than a shower curtain that has not been cleaned for a long time. Besides scum, even mildew makes its presence around the edges of the curtain. Some people do not bother to clean their curtains, instead discard them once they're quite unsightly. Shower curtains may not be very expensive, but throwing them away is certainly under-utilizing them.
