How to determine the required installation depth of the shower drain?

The top of the shower drain should be at the same level or max. 2 mm (1/16”) lower than the finishing floor. When determining the required installation depth of the shower drain, please take the following into consideration:

  • The height of the shower drain
  • Application of tile adhesive
  • Tile thickness
  • Sloping

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.
