Is the manufacturer lying to me?

I can't seem to fugue out how to post pictures off my phone. Ill edit if i can figure it out... So i keep getting shower bases delivered to my work that are missing the grooved hard plastic "flange" that is usually fiberglassed right to base. The thing you attach the drain body to with silicon. The manufacturer keeps saying that it's fine without them. That we can just attach the drain nifty directly to the fiber glass. Personally i have never installed tubs or shower bases that are missing it. As they are grooved to(i assume) help make the seal when tightening on the drain body. I'm only a 3rd year. If any of you understand what I'm laying down here... Would it actually be fine to install the drain body without the flange? Is it ok to just silicon the drain body directly to the fiber glass like they say we should. We keep returning the ones that show up without it. I feel like what the manufacturers are saying is shady... submitted by /u/Ravokion [link] [comments]
