Until a couple of years ago, the most common floor drains were the traditional point ones – one or more holes in the ground, through which the water was collected. And while they were pretty effective, there was still a great risk of the water overflowing and flooding the wet room. Here are two most common reasons: a greater volume of water than the capacity of the drain, or the clogging of the drain.
In the latter case, this can be considered the main weakness of the traditional point drains, since all the impurities were collected in a single, tight place.
But, in the last couple of years, the trend has changed. Sure enough, the linear drains have been with us for quite a while now. However, in the recent years, more and more clients have asked for these types of drain systems to be installed. These floor drains are much more reliable than the traditional ones, being the best that technology has to offer from this point of view.
The linear drains (also known as channel drains) have many advantages over their predecessors. And the main ones are that it deals with the problems mentioned above. Since the water is collected on a larger area, the risk of water overflowing and flooding the wet room is greatly diminished. Because of the same reason, the impurities aren’t collected in a single place, so the risk of clogging is also greatly reduced.
Another advantage would be that they are a lot easier to install than the traditional point ones. You can do it yourself without the assistance of a professional plumber. You just have to make sure that the floor is tilted in the direction you will install the new drain system and you are good to go.
The linear drains are also much easier to maintain – because maintenance is still needed. However, it is easier, because of the same reason: the impurities are collected on a larger area and you won’t have to unclog the drains. You just need to wipe and you are done.
These floor drains can also be personalized in any way that the clients want to. From their length to the model of the grating, there are many alternatives from which one can choose. Also, a client can choose the material from which the linear drains are made of. Furthermore, a trend within a trend has risen.
The linear drains are inconspicuous when compared to the traditional ones. And they look rather chic on the wet room floor. But what makes them even better looking is LED lighting, paired with a personalized inscription on the grating.
