How do I know if the drainage capacity is sufficient and where can I find out?

Your shower drain must have a higher drainage capacity than the amount of water produced by the shower.  A standard shower produces about 10-16 litres per minute (depends on the amount of water produced by the water heater/boiler).
Easy Drain shower drains have a minimum drainage capacity of 30 litres per minute, which means that the drainage capacity for a standard shower is more than sufficient.

Note: If you use several shower heads or a rain shower, make sure that the drainage capacity is sufficient. In addition, the layout of the shower room also affects the drainage of the water. We recommend to always consult a specialist when determining the layout of the bathroom and the needed drainage capacity.

Where to find the drainage capacity

You can find the drainage capacity on our product pages (example)  under “Technical information” and in the datasheet on the tab “Downloads “. We also list the drainage capacity in our catalogue. If you have any questions about this, please let us know.

Note: To achieve the best possible result, please carefully read the installation guide because the exact instructions depend on the type of shower drain. We recommend that the shower drain installation should only be done by trained professionals in compliance with local building regulations.
