USG Drains Rock the Shower Market!

The new player in the shower installation kit world that has come out swinging is USG.  They have prepared and completed a solid shower drain kit that pushes any other in the market to the side. 

Here is a quick look at the USG Drain Kit.

The USG Durock Shower System is a fully bonded waterproofing system, designed to control moisture independently of the tile covering. The USG Durock Drain Kit is specifically engineered to fit into the USG Durock Shower Pans. By using the two in conjunction with each other you are able to create a walk-in tiled shower that has a top side waterproofing barrier. The shower drain bonding flange is made to accept a waterproofing membrane.

The USG Durock Drain Kit comes supplied with a 4" square drain grate that has an antique copper finish.  The Drain Assembly has a universal fit that accepts either a PVC or ABS drain connection, as both bushings are included in the package.

The USG Durock Drain Kit comes with:

  • 4" Square Drain Grate - Many Colors Available
  • Grate tray riser
  • Horizontal adjustment ring
  • Grate Puller
  • PVC and ABS drain connection bushing

Aqua Shield Waterproofing Membrane

The quality of your workmanship says a lot about you. So, when deciding if you should waterproof your shower before tiling, the answer is emphatically YES! But how can you do that if all the products you are using only "resist" water? Hardie board, green board, water-resistant grout sealer, ceramic tile and even mortar will only "resist" water.

This means, over time water WILL seep down to your sub-floor/ frame causing it to rot.
Rotting Shower Floor

The solution?

Aqua Shield Waterproofing Membrane. This is an easy to use fibrous material that can be purchased by-the-roll or by-the-square-foot and will create a water PROOF environment. For only $1.59 per square foot, this product is inexpensive enough to allow you to Aqua Shield your entire tiled-in shower. It is applied with a thin layer of thin-set to your backer-board or shower pan  and designed to allow you to apply your tile right to it with the very same thin-set. In addition, this innovative vapor barrier is mold-resistant and won't break down from strong chemicals. Best of all, there is no cure time on this product like you will find with liquid waterproofing membranes.

What you can expect:

-Easy installation
-Natural vapor barrier
-Flexible/ Cut fabric to desired length
-No cure time
-UV Stabilization
-Resistant to chemical breakdown
-Turn your shower into a water "PROOF" environment
