Installation is one of the most important parts of the shower drain installation. It is necessary to prepare all the things before starting installation. It is recommended to prepare the area where you are going to install the shower drain including surrounding walls and plumbing. Before the installation, it’s very important to turn off the electricity and gas supply of your bathroom so that it won’t be damaged during the process. Before starting to clean the area, it’s advisable to turn off the water supply to make sure that the area is not flooded. It is also advisable to cover the pipes with waterproof material.
Causes of bathroom floor seepage:
There are several causes of bathroom floor seepage. Some of these reasons include daily cleaning and maintenance of the shower drain, using cleaning agents in the bathroom, and installing the shower drain water filters on the shower wall. One of the best ways to deal with floor seepage problems is to implement a regular cleaning and maintenance routine for all the pipes in your bathroom. This should include the shower drain. A good cleansing routine should include sweeping the floor daily, cleaning the tile grout with mild soap and hot water, wiping down the walls and floor with a damp sponge or cloth, using a biodegradable chemical product for cleaning the shower drain, and reapplying the cleaning agent after each cleaning session.
Shower drains are normally fitted into the floor space between the ceramic tile and the drain basin. The size of the pipe that connects the basin to the drain is determined by the drainpipe capacity. Shower drains are normally made from either cement or sand. Each of these materials is different and will determine the lifespan and durability of the shower drain. Sand will last longer than cement. The cement is sturdier and will also outlast both the sand and cement.
Factors to dirty drains:
There are many contributing factors to dirty drains in the home. These can include using unhygienic products in the toilet bowl, using poor quality water when showering, using older plumbing, and the constant pushing and pulling of the plumbing system. It can also be caused by the build-up of dirt and grime within the piping system. This can make the trap size too small and the liquid spillage will not flow out smoothly. Most often it is the accumulation of dirt, grime, and soap scum that clogs the trap and results in dirty water.
If you have a large bathroom, then we can add the shower drain to the existing pipe. We must first make sure that there are no underground gas or oil leaks in the system. Once this is checked, then we can seal the area around the drain with a drain sealing compound. We will need a very strong chemical to keep the water flowing smoothly through the pipe and it is wise to have someone else help you apply this.
Once this is applied and the pipe is sealed, we can install a PVC pipe over the drain according to the type of drain we have constructed. The advantage of this is that the entire procedure can be done at one time, even if several people are working on the project. A variety of drain cleaners can be used to clean the PVC pipe and this should be done before the adhesive is applied. After the glue has dried, we can install the iron drain according to the instructions given by the manufacturer. This will ensure that we get a leak-proof and watertight seal on the entire pipe.
