linear drain for outdoor shower? - Hi, I have an existing Techo Bloc courtyard. I would like to put a shower against the house. The courtyard is pitched. instead of a raised shower with a pan, I would like to just walk straight in. Can I use a linear drain, fitting it into the pavers?

I agree, how do you catch hair? It is yucky enough to clean one strainer but a whole line?

It's just a tray underneath that flows to a strainer. Not difficult to clean

My question is regarding a curbless shower. - My builder tells me that there has to be at least a 1/4" drop at the transition between the bathroom floor and the shower pan. I know I have seen showers where there is a smooth transition. The shower is 4'6" deep and 7' wide, with a frameless shower door on the 7' dimension and a horizontal channel drain along the back 7' wall. Is the builder correct that there must be a small drop at the transition between the bathroom floor and the shower pan?

Miquela, there is not only one way to do it. There are more possible solutions to built a transition free curbless shower. It is all depending on your situation and your circumstances. However most important is to use the right materials.

Our advice: Let do the job only by an experienced and skilled tile setter. Ask him whether he has done similar projects in the past. Ask for evidences. Let him explain what exactly he will do to and what materials he will use to accomplish his work.

Do your homework and sped time to find a company you can trust to avoid headache and frustration.

If you have any further questions or need any advices, please don't hesitate to contact us. It will be a pleasure for us to help you.

I'm not sure the material used for this picture. I believe it a Porcelain tile. I have noticed after installing dozens of these linear drains that when picking a tile it is important to consider the path the water takes to the drain. An offset path like this needs a little extra pitch to keep water from getting hung up on the grout joints.

I'm building a new home and I have a zero clearance shower (recessed floor). Plumbing rough-in is already complete. Is it possible to use a channel drain now considering the floor has not been floated out yet?

please check proper procedure fof waterproofing your shower floor. I know code in this area is not good enough for a good watertight tile floor. Check out the profiles for the channel drains too. you basically decide how and which direction you want the water to drain and there are many shapes of channel drains ( i.e. in a corner, right, left) to accomodate your needs.

have you seen the channel drains that light up when water hits the drain? there is no electricity involved, just LED's and batteries.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's a detail of a trench drain that can be used in a zero-threshold shower.
Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS added this to New Year's Resolutions for Your Bathroom Renovation
Bathroom Resolution No. 7: I will start thinking "straight" next year.This isn't a slam on anyone's preferences or thought processes! But straight-style linear drains are the best shower innovation to come along in years, and it's crazy not to consider including one when updating your shower. They're available in numerous metal finishes, as shown here, or in tile-ready format (you barely see these at all). In addition to enhancing the style of your shower, they can also improve its safety and add flexibility in drain placement.

Sunken curbless shower pan and linear drain: Ideally, an open shower requires a 6-foot buffer zone on all sides, but a half-wall can help to contain spray. For privacy consider a corner location, facing away from the other bathroom zones. Use a rain-style or handheld type showerhead. To avoid cold water spray, set the valve control at the shower entry, NOT under the shower spray. A second spray head can make cleaning much easier. Ensure proper drainage by angling the shower floor slightly so that water flows toward the drain. Add a second drain for doubly effective siphoning. Longer drains make for easy installation of large format tile, reducing the amount of grout. See John Whipple (North Vancouver) of By AnyDesign LTD http://no-curb.blogspot.com/. He uses ACO Linear Grill. (See http://www.houzz.com/pro/kbcdevelopments) LUXE and ACO linear drains install independent of any waterproofing method or material. These drains are set just like tile into the tile bed and are compatible with conventional membranes (as well as with Kerdi ultra-thin). Both LUXE and ACO are the market leaders, focused on linear drain design and "universal" installations. Also check out: https://schluterevents.com/en/about.php--Kerdishower systems with linear drains, ultra-thin waterproof Kerdi membranes, pre-sloped shower bases, and barrier free ramps.
