Wetroom with a linear trap


We finished this wetroom with a linear drain with a large 600 X 600 format tile.  The wetroom linear drain has a tiled cover so that it blends perfectly into the floor.

Wetroom floor with large format tiles and linear floor gully.

We used the schluter systems - Schlüter-KERDI-LINE-H /-V to tank and form the floor of the wetroom.  The nice thing about this wetroom floor former is that the gully goes tight against the wall and you can tile on top of the gully to give the floor a really neat finish.  The gap to take the waste water is just a little wider than a normal grout joint.

The trap is easy to access and clean.  Schluter provide a key to lift the top off and even a brush with which to clean the gully.

Tiling a wetroom linear drain

The tiling takes a little extra time to layout to get the correct fall across the entire floor.  We needed to do a couple of extra tile cuts but far less that you would have had to do if you had a standard square trap in the middle of the shower area.

From this fitting experience I would recommend the linear trap to anybody who is intending to use large format tiles for a wetroom floor.
