trench drain for shower?
Just curious if anyone has done this before. We are doing a bathroom with a large shower, no threshold or curb, 24"x24" floor tiles throughout. To accomplish this, the floor will slope toward the wet wall with the shower trim, and at the base of the wall will be a trench drain running its full length.
The challenge seems to be finding the right drain hardware. We've found a variety of options, but aren't sure which is best for the application. The tricky part is how the membrane attaches to the drain assembly.
This (ACO Membrane Drain) is what our plumber recommends, since the drain channel is made to clamp in the membrane across the full length of the channel. But, it is more than double the width of what we want and it quite expensive$$$.
The Stormtech 38AG is an attractive option, but the company is in Australia, and we're not sure about the the membrane connection detail which is essentially both the membrane and a small pipe from the trench drain feeding into to a larger drain pipe sitting in a rebate. Thoughts on this method?
We like this drain (ACO MiniKlassik), but apparently no way to attach the membrane, unless we could install it in the same way as the Stormtech above. Thoughts?
How would you make this work?
