For the shower enclosure of the bathroom, we must do a good job of effective drainage. Because if the drainage of the shower enclosure in the bathroom is not smooth, during the showering process, a large amount of water may accumulate on the floor of the shower room, which is also very unfavorable for the waterproofing of our bathroom, and will cause the floor to be slippery. , Easy to fall. So how should the drainage of the bathroom shower enclosure be done?
Installation of shower enclosure drainage system pipeline
1. Main drainage pipe
For the drainage of the area system of the shower enclosure, there must be a drainage pipe connected to the main drainage pipe. This main drainage pipe is the main drainage pipe for the entire bathroom. This main drainage pipe is installed below the floor or floor slab of the toilet, and then connected to the riser of the toilet drainage. For the main drainage pipe, 110 mm PVC pipes are generally selected. During installation, it is connected to the drain standpipe by oblique three-way connections.
2. Drainage branch pipe in the shower enclosure area
For drainage branch pipes, PVC pipes with a diameter of 50 mm or 75 mm are generally selected. During installation, it is installed through holes on the ground or directly on the ground. Finally, it is connected to the main drainage pipe, and the connection is a P-bend or S-bend. It is recommended that you choose a 90-degree p-bend with inspection port for installation.
Location selection of floor drain for shower enclosure drainage system
1. Choice of installation method
For the drainage branch pipe in the shower enclosure area of ??the bathroom, I personally recommend that you reserve this drainage branch pipe in a corner of the wall. When setting aside, we directly cut through the floor slab or if it is the first floor, it can be buried directly under the ground. In this way, a PVC pipe with a diameter of 75 mm or 50 mm is reserved perpendicular to the ground.
2. Confirmation of the location of the floor drain
The confirmation of the location of the floor drain is actually equivalent to the confirmation of the location of the drainage branch pipe. For the confirmation of the position of the drainage branch pipe in the shower enclosure, my personal recommendation is that the distance between the corner or the side of the wall and the finished surface of the wall is about 15 cm. In this way, the floor drain is installed and the floor space of the shower enclosure is occupied as little as possible.
Floor paving of shower enclosure drainage system
1. Confirm the installation position of the floor drain and the installation height of the floor drain
Because the drainage branch pipe in our shower enclosure area has been completed, the installation position of the floor drain is basically confirmed, and then we have to confirm the installation height of the floor drain. The installation height of the floor drain is to be confirmed with the thickness of the tile layer on our floor.
2. The paving of floor tiles
At this time, we can lay down the shower enclosure and the floor tiles of the entire bathroom. If we want to accurately control the slope of the drainage at the floor drain location, we recommend that you first confirm the height of the floor tiles at the floor drain location, or directly pave the floor tiles at the floor drain location. Then use the floor drain as the center to find slopes around. In other words, the center point of the floor drain is the lowest point, and the location farthest from the floor drain is the highest point. In this way, the slope of the entire bathroom from the floor drain to the farthest point should reach about two centimeters.
3. Installation of floor drain
After we have finished laying all the floor tiles in the shower enclosure, the floor drain can be installed at this time. When installing the floor drain, it is recommended that the surface of the floor drain is slightly lower than our floor tiles by about 1 mm, and then the floor drain is sealed with sealant. This completes the installation of the drainage system of the shower enclosure and the floor drain.
