preferred brand/model for linear shower drain?
We are getting close to having to spec this. I've read several threads on the topic, but some are from several years ago, so I want to get the latest info and experience from those in the know.
Quick Drain? Or the one by Laticrete? Others? When I first started looking into this, it seemed there was only one I could easily find and it was on the order of 600.00. Then Laticrete came out with one closer to 400. Yay for competition! Are those still the options or are there others to consider?
Pros and cons of the grate showing as opposed to those with the sliver of tile to cover? Aesthetics or function?
Do I have to know the plan for the waterproofing in order to make this decision?
Background info: Shower is walk-through to tub, no curb, large format tiles (yes I will consider coefficient of friction). New construction, concrete floors, hydronic heat.
What else do I need to be thinking of?
