LUXE Linear Drains are Easier to Install than Similar Drains from the Competition

One of the questions often asked about LUXE Linear Drains is how easy or difficult it is to install them. Many of our customers are surprised to learn that the process of installing one of our linear drains isn’t as difficult as it is to install similar products from other manufacturers when we compare the process for them.

Linear drains from some of our competitors have their own proprietary waterproofing systems integrated. This means that you must use their waterproofing material and other integral parts, like bonding flanges. While one of their linear drains may only cost $400, the waterproofing and other materials could cost as much as $800 or more, depending on the size of the shower.

LUXE Linear Drains, on the other hand, are much easier to install because they are independent of any waterproofing methods or materials. That means any code approved waterproofing materials, such as Vinyl, CPE, roll/paint on, lead pan, hot mop, or other surface membranes can be used. Additionally, all of our drains fit atop any standard clampdown floor drains of any construction PVC, ABS, cast iron, etc. Just remove the threaded strainer assembly and replace it with your LUXE Linear Drain. It installs into the tile bed just like tile. Another advantage of LUXE Linear Drains is the fact that the installation of tile and other daily construction won’t be disrupted by waiting for your standard or custom fabricated LUXE Linear Drain.

  1. I have a question: there will be a good size gap between the 2″ pipe from the liner drain channel and the clamping ring opening diameter of a typical shower drain, and I was wondering if a shower drain connector is required or not. Any small blockage (and we all know that hair may plug the drains once in a while) will make the water back flow under the channel.

    • You have two options. The gap is minimal, roughly 1/16-1/8″ gap. About the same as the weep holes built in to the drain body. Option1: leave uncoupled and allow a path for moisture that comes through the tile bed down and out the drain opening. Option2: seal the gap with a fernco or similar rubber adapter. There is also a threaded pvc adapters by spears 887-005 or 887-030 I think will both work fine- cut these in half to make 2!
