Test kit for shower pan...HELPPPPP!
 
I have my membrane and commercial drain installed now in my walk in shower.
I have to test it for the insperctor to see that it holds water. I went out and bought a test kit but after installing it ,it looks like its to used during testing water pressure.
Item is made by Oatey 33403 2 red disc's sandwitched between a rubber ring with a butterfly bolt on top that tightens and expands in drain...

Anyway all the water just drains out the weep holes like its suppost to, so how do I test it for the inspector and what kit do I buy...That will hold the water in the shower, he wants to see standing water in the shower about
1 1/2" to 2" of water.and he wants us to do this the day befor he inspects.:eek: going crazy please help

You want the "inflatable bulb" with the long neck. Place it in the drain pipe past the weep holes and fill it with air.:)

Can you advise me on product name so when I go into HD they know what to give me?
They are the ones that gave me the one oatey devise that I have now and told me this was what I needed.

Drop a blow up balloon test ball below the weep holes then fill it up.

That little bugger may be way too sophisticated for Home Depot, you may have to go to a "real" plumbing supply house.

I'll look around when I get a minute, I have no idea what the name of that thing is these days.:)
