Best Shower Drain?
I'm getting close to starting the shower pan on my two showers....
No, I will not be using pre-fab pans. Both showers are anything but 'standard'...nothing will fit...hence, both will be motar based pans....still tossing around the decision to use hot mop or membrain...
So....which drain should I use? I don't want to break the bank...but I also don't want to do this again in 15 years....
Any other suggestions are also welcome.
You need to decide what you are going to do before you choose a drain---
I don't know what is used for Hot Mop----so ask a local plumber or a California member---
For a hand packed shower base with a PVC liner--you need a clamping type drain --covers come in round or square----cost about $35 with a square drain cover---much less with the round---
If you are using Ditra you need a Schluter drain---over $100---
If you are using Hydroban by Latacrete--you could use a Schluter drain or the new drain from Latacrete---never saw a price on one yet--new product---
