The draining system – much more important than you believed
Usually, people tend to notice the importance of the shower drain when it is a bit too late – usually, when it becomes too clogged and they have to call on a plumber to help them out. Usually, the people who are moving in a new home leave the drain system repairs or replacement the last, considering it to be not as important as the other aspects which come with moving into a new home.
But you shouldn’t do so. The maintenance of an already installed drain system doesn’t take too long on a weekly basis. And then, when moving to a new home, if you’d know what to purchase, the instalment could be done by yourself, all alone, just by following the instructions you have received.
In either of these ways, the time and money investments can be greatly reduced.
For example, if you are moving into a new home and you want to replace your linear shower floor drain, you can choose one of the three possibilities. The easiest one is the get a readymade shower room floor, which is basically the bottom part of the shower cabin, coming with an incorporated drain system. It is pretty easy to install, though the choices you can make are actually reduced. Of course, that is only if you choose to personalize it.
The second choice would be to go for the traditional point drain systems, which can be found in the majority of the homes. These types of drains are the most common because they are the least expensive ones (the basic ones, that is), but you’d probably need some help when it comes to installing them.
They are the round or square shaped holes in the shower room floor, through which the water is collected. Unlike the readymade shower room floors, these can be personalized, from the material from which they are made to the different types of gratings. However, they are not the most obvious choice in our modern times.
Instead, you should choose the linear drains, who are the best shower drain system which can be found on the market. This type o shower drain system can handle larger amounts of water flow, they clog very hardly, and they are very easy to maintain. Furthermore, they are much easier to install, thus eating away less of your time – you only need to have the shower room floor slightly tilted in a single direction, whereas the traditional point ones needed for the shower room floor to be concentrically titled, towards the drains.
Also called channel drains, these types of drains are basically tight trenches installed right near the shower room wall. They can be as long as you want them to be – and they can actually add to the aesthetics of the room.
These types of drains are also the ones which can be the most personalized of them all, starting from their length, the material they are made of, the type of grating (if needed), and even LED lighting. Capable of handling larger flows of water than any other drain systems, they will never let the water overflow.
So if you are planning on moving to a new home, this latter type of shower drain system is the one that you should definitely choose. Of course, this change could be made at any time, but it is the smaller details that always prove to be the most important.
Enjoy a relaxing and soothing shower and never worry – your new drain system will do its job.
