Linear Drain Layout?


Have any of you installed a curbless shower in this layout?
I didn't want to slope the whole seven foot of area to put on back wall and pay for a 7 foot drain

Guess I'm just not sure what I'm going to do with the pie shape wedge that I will get once I slope the floor to drain.

I will have a glass panel starting where the slope will begin. I was maybe thinking the u-channel for the glass will hide or make it less noticeable (butting the outside floor to channel rather than running over and giving even more height)

Also do you think 4 foot out is enough with body sprays? Didn't think it would jet out any further than that and I don't plan on putting a door on the entrance either.

Re: Linear Drain Layout?


I think you're layout is fine. That setup is very typical for the curbless design.

Re: Linear Drain Layout?


Steve where does the client enter this shower?

Is it open at the back?

Is there pitch outside the room back to the shower?

Can you email me your plan? info@byanydesign.com

And yes I don't swing by Kitchens & Baths that often.

What is the plumbing set up? Hand Held? Body Jets?

Are those doubled-up 2 x 4's for the floor joists under the shower?

Re: Linear Drain Layout?


They are 2x10s that I notched out about 1 3/4" and then I glued and doubled up with 2x4s. Not really for support I guess since they don't span to a baring wall....just something to help level out the notches a bit

Re: Linear Drain Layout?


How is the tile install proceeding? Can't wait to see it finished.

I have some Schluter transition pieces and some oversized U Channel going in here in Edgemont. I'll send you a series of pictures when i'm done.

Re: Linear Drain Layout?


Well, I decided not to go with a transition at all....After installing the stone it really didn't look that bad not putting anything.
The U channel will be sitting right on the flat area for the glass

It's been a learning curve with this channel drain.....
I should have bumped out the drain from rough framing at least a 1/4"
My tile could not slide down behind the channel drain (I mean it could just not far enough behind to be able to remove the drain cover)

I wouldn't mind trying another style of drain next time.....I didn't really like the ring clamp for this drain......It was difficult to line up and get the screws to sink straight.
