What Are Linear Drains?

What are linear drains? They are drainage systems that run perpendicular to the building’s structure. This type of drain usually has a wider diameter than the main pipe and it is installed inside the building’s walls or on the outside of them. Generally, you can only have one type of drain in any particular area, but if there is a need to accommodate two types, you can do so by installing the larger one on one side of the house and the smaller one on the other side. Usually, this is done with the help of a plumber, but you can also accomplish this task yourself by using a measuring tape, a pencil, and a straight-edge. Measure your main pipe first, including the joint.

Lengths – Manufacturers provide linear drains in various lengths, which is also an important consideration to take into account when designing your drainage system. For most curbless shower doors, manufacturers advise placing the drain either around the entire entrance door or along the wall directly opposite the entry door. You should also include this measurement on your plan so that you can check to see if your measurements will give you adequate drain space. If you want to install a large amount of drains, you may want to think about installing them as a system. This will require you to connect them to a central point, often located on the outside of the building. This system is more expensive and usually requires you to use a plumbing contractor for the installation. Before deciding to go with this option, you need to carefully measure and plan your drainage system, including the distance between the points where the drain pipes intersect with the main drain.

Choosing the correct drainage system for your home requires careful planning and implementation, and proper installation is very important. A good designer or plumber will be able to guide you through the entire process, from start to finish. They will also show you how to set up the system so that your new drain will match the existing drainage pattern of the building. In the end, your new drain system will allow you to enjoy uninterrupted showering and will reduce your chance of having a clogged toilet.
