@magilojoh, thanks. yes it's actually 4.33' x 7.75'. maybe the large 26"x13" wall tiles make the area look bigger, although the flooring would contradict that :(. plus there are no windows in this bathroom but i don't miss one as much as i would if the room was much bigger.

Hi John,
I have an Infinity Drain brand linear drain in a step down Roman Tub/shower combo. The drain is functional, although since the shower drain is now at the lowest part of the house, I do experience long waits to drain if the grates are not perfectly clean. The drain runs to a sump pump which moves the wter up a foot or so to the main line out of the house. Between the pump and the drain is a solonoid opereated by an air switch to stop the water so I can fill the tub. This system has never performed well, and may be the cause of my drainage issues. Are there any other options besides the solonoid to fill the tub?
Thanks

HI there: we are creating a no-wall, curbless shower in ground floor remodel w/new concrete slab & radiant heat. My contractor says we cannot use a linear drain too close to the foundation, but this does not make any sense to me. Most ground floor showers would be close to the foundation, no? Any comments?

The California Plumbing Code (Section 411.6) states that you need 2" from the threshold or dam to the top of the drain. Max. slope is 1/2" per foot so how do you make any shower with less than 4' in the direction of slope comply with the code and have a zero threshold... unless of course you completely comply with T-24 accessibility standards and in that case the shower stall is a lot bigger?

Carmel McFayden -

I'm unfamiliar with the CA code as I'm not licensed in CA. Probably best if you ask a CA licensed professional that question. If you do, please post the answer as I'd really like to know how that would work.

@renaudemond - 5x6 is a good start but 6x6 is better. Rain shower heads will minimize splashing outside the footprint.

so I am also considering an open shower. but we only have room for a 36x36 shower with a 60x32 tub behind it. my thought would be to put a low wall (2') to one side that meets the tub surround to the back. There would be a full wall to the other side and another full wall where the shower head would be. Do I need to worry much about splashing over the 2' wall? this will be all tiled. my images says 24" glass door, but that is what I'd like to leave out.

All true, and thank you for featuring one of my project. The challenge there was also to give light to the shower/tub, that meant a tiled half wall with shower head installed on the glass.

Why, thank you! Our client loves having a Dyson hand dryer and their guests always comment about how unusual it is that they have one, and how convenient it is.

This is soooo helpful. I am in the process of renovating 2 bathrooms and giving one a shower/tub combo. Existing plumbing puts the vanity next to the alcove tub. How much space should I leave between the tub and vanity edge?

@rnsmcdonough, I am not sure I understand exactly. Do you mean the sink is next to the tub or across from it?
