What to Know About Shower Drains
Shower drains impact the functionality and appearance of the bathroom, so it’s important to make the right choice.
Most people don’t spend too much time thinking about their shower drain during the early stages of their bathroom remodelling project. But at some point or another, they tend to realise that this easily overlooked aspect is much more than an afterthought: it plays an integral role in the bathroom’s functionality. A modern shower drain can also help elevate the aesthetic qualities of one of the most important rooms in the home, too.
There’s much to know about bathroom drains; indeed, more than you might think! There’s a difference between a linear
shower drain and a shower slot drain, for instance, with each impacting the overall look and functionality of the space. In this post, we’ll guide you through everything you need to know about a shower floor drain, shower channel drain, and more, including why an Aquabocci product is the right way to go.
Shower Drains: An Integral Part of the Bathroom
First up, let’s focus on why a modern shower drain is so important. When you understand the function of the drain, then you’ll know why it’s essential to pick the right one for your project.
Shower drains, be it a small round shower drain or long shower drain, exist to remove excess water.
And in the bathroom, there can be a lot of excess water. If your shower drain or wet room drain doesn’t function correctly, then there’s a high chance that the water that doesn’t drain away results in a damp, moist atmosphere that can lead to more serious problems such as mould. Plus, the wrong type of shower or wet room drain can result in pungent standing water that will compromise the spa-like atmosphere you’re looking to create in your bathroom.
Things to Keep In Mind When Selecting a Modern Shower Drain It can be a little overwhelming looking at the range of shower drains available on the market. Plus, they all have different names —shower floor drain, shower slot drain, linear shower drain, among others — so how are you supposed to pick the one that’s right for you? Below, we’ll run through a few things to keep in mind when it comes to making your selection.
The Flow Rate
In nearly all cases, the drain you select will manage your shower water just fine, especially if it comes from a quality manufacturer. However, if you have a high-tech, modern shower that has multiple water sources and a high water output, then you may need to
think about the flow rate capacity of the drain. Linear drains can handle more litres of water per minute than small drains, making them an ideal option for high-tech bathrooms.
A shower or wet room shower drain can only work effectively if the water can easily pass through the access point. If that access point becomes clogged, then the water flow rate will be reduced. Most people don’t have to worry about clogging, but if you use certain types of soap or lose a lot of hair when washing, then picking an easy-to-clean drain will be best. If you have any questions about which wet room shower drain or low profile shower drain is easiest to clean, then give us a call here and we will be happy to discuss the best option for your project.
The primary goal of a shower drain is to remove excess water. But when you’re trying to put together a beautiful bathroom, you’ll want your drain to be more than simply functional. Selecting a modern, aesthetically pleasing linear shower drain can elevate the overall appearance of the bathroom and allows you to have large format tiles with the need for tile cuts, and you can also slop a full slab of stone towards the drain. At Aquabocci, our drains are made from quality anodised aluminium, ensuring a sleek and stylish look. Our products are also available in four colours, so you can select the option that’s right for your bathroom or wet room.
