The Shower Tray

Basic Guide:

The pipes that will handle the drains are the first consideration before the job starts. You will have to work out how you’re going to run them and allow for the depth of the shower tray. A Hackney Plumber can fit trays. It may be possible for a hole to be cut in the floor that will accommodate the waste pipe. If so, you will have to construct a hatch that will allow access, or even extend the hole for the waste trap further than the outside edge of the shower tray is, maybe make a separate hatch, within reach easy of the trap. Working with a solid floor it is quote likely that you a sufficient fall cannot be achieved for the drainage under a suspended floor, you might use an enclosure that has a step into the tray, then, raise the tray above floor level by fitting it onto a plinth. Should there be little or no space underneath the shower tray for the shallow P-trap to go, you could always fit a more compact type of trap. There is one designed specifically to allow the required water seal while being shallow enough to fit under the most modern shower trays. There is a removable grid so it can be easily cleaned. Hackney Plumbers use P-traps. If the pipes are correct, you can proceed and install the tray. Place the tray on its side and run a bead of sanitary silicon sealant around the waste hole, so that it will sit on the sealant. Fit washers with the locking nut as you screw it up with an adjustable spanner. Fit the trap to the waste outlet. Mix some mortar and using a trowel, lay a thin layer on the floor where the tray will be located. Put the tray in place. Bed it down into the mortar and make sure its level, using a spirit level. Move and add the mortar as necessary. Open the floor hatch and connect the trap to the waste pipe.
