    Hi, Thanks for all the helpful information! About building a drain along the wall, my contractor didn't make the outside edge of the linear drain to rest up against the tile on the wall, but left a 1/4 space between the drain edge and the tile. What would you recommend us to do with this gap? Thanks very much!

    Hello John, I'm really struggling to find any site or way in which to contact you, hoping this thread is still living! I have spent countless hours researching the linear drains and am at my wits end! Bathroom floor is dropped in a 56-1/4" x 90" area ready for this project. I need to place the drain as a barrier by the entry way spanning the entire 90". Cannot go against back wall easily because of joist limitation.Tile will be sloped in from either 2" or 14" outside of the shower then up to the back wall, drawing NOT to scale! I will have wedge wire grate and two 2" ABS outlets in to a 3" ABS drain, so not overly concerned about the flooding the bathroom issue. My main dilemma is how to terminate the linear at each wall. I saw your photos in another forum and saw how you tiled in to the drain channel by cutting a 'tab' on the bottom of the tile. In order to do this could the entire floor and drain be finished first with channel extended about 3/4" past the intended area of finished wall? Silicone caulk the drain at each end. Then the walls could be floated in and the tab cut on the bottom of the two opposite tiles that would sit in the channel. Floor will be hot mopped (I'm in California), walls lath and mortar, and the floor also floated outside of shower area. I'm on a wooden sub floor obviously. Finally, I have narrowed my options down to site sizable QM Delmar or the DERA-Line. Both have pros and cons, do you have any advice as in 'stay away from' or pointers re these two drains? I realise the DERA is cheaper, 304 S/S as opposed to 316. The DERA is custom made to exact length or I may not even be asking the question about the walls. I'm leaning in the DERA direction because price is getting high and the wife is pushing to avoid linear, which would pain me after getting this close. The Dera is coming in around $1100 vs $1500.

    I thoroughly appreciate any advice or guidance you are willing to give, I'm sure you are a busy guy. Thanks very much in advance.

      2. How to Choose the Best Drain for Your ShowerWho would've thought choosing a shower drain could be so complicated? This ideabook helps Houzzers figure out what drain would work best for their family, house and shower needs.

      Linear DrainsThis shower is one of my favorites and features a linear drain from Quick Drain USA. This drain is one of my top picks and recommendations on most jobs. The narrow profile and the fact that it's also a primary shower drain make it one of the best options out there.Tip: When working with standard 3/8-inch-thick tile, I plan on a 1 1/4-inch finished wall build-out (off the stud framing) to factor in a combination of the 1/2-inch backer board, waterproofing, tile thinset and tile thickness. Plan your build-out before installing the drain so you can put the drain tight to the wall, as shown here. If you have not picked your tile yet, hold off on installing the drain until you have.

      I like this drain cover. How does it work when there is a clog?

      Want a linear drain on one of the walls, instead of a drain in the center of the shower floor. This drain appears to have a slight lip ( it may be just an illusion) but please make it flush with the floor tile.
