INSTALLATION

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS

METHOD 1 - TRADITIONAL PRIMARY SHOWER PAN (UNBONDED MEMBRANE)

Waterproofing installed under thick-bed mortar using Composeal Blue or Grey Shower Pan Membrane or Composeal Aqua Shell Liquid Applied membrane. This method must be used with a traditional clamping ring type drain assembly with clear weep holes and is performed in exactly the same way as a traditional shower drain assembly.

A 2 inch threaded coupling is used to connect the linear drain body to the drain sub-assembly (with clamping ring). Mortar should be packed under the linear drain body to support it level and in place.

METHOD 2 - BONDED MORTAR BED INSTALLATION

Waterproofing is installed on top of the plank-pitched mortar bed and adhered directly to the 1 inch textured bonding flange of the linear drain. Either a liquid applied membrane or a bonded sheet membrane (ANSI 118.10) can be used for this installation type. When using liquid waterproofing membrane it is recommended to use reinforcing fabric where the drain flange and mortar bed meet for the most durable installation.

In this method the 2 inch outlet from the linear drain is attached to the waste line using a 2 inch coupling according to plumbing industry standards. Mortar should be packed under the linear drain body to support it level and in place. Apply liquid or sheet membrane to the flange, mortar bed and shower system according to manufacturers instructions.

USING INSTALLATION METHODS 1 & 2 TOGETHER FOR ADDED SECURITY

Many industry professionals are using both a traditional primary shower pan and surface level waterproofing together for double protection and peace of mind. Waterproofing the entire shower enclosure may also help provide a worry free install.
