I think they suggest every 6 inches. Also, use
the special screws for it. They're self-countersinking.
And watch out for breaks. A screw driven in too
far or too close to the edge can end up supporting
nothing because it's broken up the board around it.
Don't put in screws near the floor if it's a stand-in
shower. That would put holes in your pan sides.
Google knows everything.
DuckDuckGo.com is pretty damn smart too.
