Plumbing/Soil waste

Postby teebo » Fri Jul 25, 2008 6:53 pm

I`m installing a power shower enclosure, the problem I have encountered is that it is impractical to alter the current waste pipe to the soil stack, and the bottom of the shower waste pipe is approx. 15mm lower than the soil waste. (Even with tray legs fully extended). I am hoping to avoid the £200 or so cost of a shower macerator. Can anyone suggest what I could use to support the tray to raise it further to give me the "run" I need, yet without spoiling the look at the front of the tray. (Tray is the quadrant type).

Thanks. [/b]

Simply Build It

The tray can be supported on 18mm marine ply standing on wooden battens to your choice of thickness.

For the front of the shower tray replace (if you have one) the panel using white plastic soffit board which is available in several widths and can be bent to the quad shape and screwed and siliconed into place.
