Drainage

At the core of a great shower is a great shower drain. But which shower grate is the right one for your shower? The answer is simple: the best shower drainage is the one that matches the look of your bathroom and also scores well on functionality. When it comes to the choice of bathroom drainage, the sky's the limit, so when it comes to choosing a drainage type for your bathroom, it all depends on what is right for you.

What to look for when selecting a drain

When choosing drainage for your bathroom, make sure it is Australian Standard approved and comes with a warranty. Most manufacturers offer a warranty, sometimes of five years, subject to some conditions. Style is also important. Bathrooms have become more than a functional space to keep yourself clean. They are a place of sanctuary for some people, with a lot of effort spent on creating an aesthetically pleasing space. Your choice of shower floor drain should match the style you have chosen in your bathroom. This is also true for your bathroom floor drain, which you may wish to install as a discrete addition to your floor or opt for a more ornate drain.

Our range

A selection of the shower drain types is featured below. These higher-flow-rate grates can handle much more water flow and don't sacrifice style at all. There is nothing more annoying than standing in a puddle of water while you shower or having to reduce shower water flow to prevent your shower from flooding into the bathroom. Opting for a higher flow rate drain, such as a shower channel drain, will ensure your shower is a pleasurable experience.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are the different types of shower drains?

The three main types are:

  • Linear, which runs the length of your shower, giving it a truly modern look.
  • Traditional floor grate styles.
  • The newer tile insert drain, which is a sleek and subtle addition to your flooring.

When selecting a shower drain, you need to consider the size of your shower and the look you want to achieve — ornate, modern, traditional, bold, or discrete. We are bound to have the right shower floor drain to suit both your practical and aesthetic shower drainage needs.

Where should the drain be placed in a shower?

Your drain should be placed at the lowest point of your shower floor. All shower floors have a subtle slope precisely for this purpose. You may have a floor that slopes to one side, or perhaps it has a central low point. However, wherever this low point is, is where your drain should be placed. Correct placement of your shower drainage will prevent puddles from forming and, in turn, mildew or mould from being able to form.

What is shower drainage?

Shower drainage is the plumbing fixture that sits between your shower and your plumbing pipe, enabling water to flow into your wastewater system. A well-installed shower floor drain will allow you to shower without fear of water spilling out into your bathroom. A correctly draining shower is also easier to clean, given that soapy puddles left to dry on your shower floor can create an environment that encourages mould. Slip hazards are also significantly reduced by having a shower that dries without puddles.

How can I improve the drainage in my shower?

There are several ways to improve the drainage in your shower. Firstly, ensure that the drain is clean. Hair clogging drains is one the most common causes of a shower that used to drain well suddenly not being as effective. If your drain is clean, then you should assess the type of shower grate you have installed. Some grates have flow restrictors underneath, or perhaps your grate is not large enough. Another reason a shower may not drain well is that the drain has not been installed at the lowest point of your shower floor. This is a bigger job that will require retiling your floor to match the drainage pipe position, but well worth the effort if you wish to have a well-draining shower.

How do you drain water from a bathroom?

If you have water on your bathroom floor, your main floor drain will help this. Much like a shower drain, your bathroom floor drain is situated at the lowest point of your bathroom floor, so any overspill from sinks, toilets or showers will run towards the drain. Generally, floor drains are smaller than shower drains as they do not have the same large amounts of water to contend with that a shower has.

Do toilets and showers use the same drain?

They do not directly use the same drain. However, all wastewater is channelled into the main sewerage system unless you have installed a greywater recycling system, in which case your toilet will flow into the sewerage pipe, and your shower water will flow into your grey water tank. Importantly, being channelled into the same system does not mean you will have toilet waste flowing through your shower drain pipe. Each item in your bathroom has its own pipe that flows to the main drainage pipe and then onwards to the main sewerage pipe.

Is a floor waste drain required in a bathroom?

This depends on state laws and you will need the advice of a qualified builder or tradesman to confirm. However, without a bathroom floor drain, you run the risk of flooding your bathroom. Perhaps a sink overfilled, or there has been a plumbing failure, or you got out of the bath too quickly and left large puddles. Your bathroom floor drain will take care of any mishaps with water spilling out onto the floor. We understand this is not something that happens every day, so the drain may not have a lot of water flowing through it. An unused drain can become a little smelly due to stagnant water sitting at the base, so we recommend you pour a bit of water into the drain every now and then to avoid this.

My drains are smelly; how do I clean them?

For an environmentally friendly, cheaper alternative to commercial drain cleaners, remove the grate and remove any hair or build-up as much as possible. Once your drain is as clear as you can make it, pour a little boiling water down the pipe. For a deeper clean, you can add vinegar and baking powder to the drain, let it sit for a minute and then flush with boiling water. This will remove any smells and give your drain a good clean through. Finally, clean the grate and replace it.
