The Basics of the Shower Tray

If you are remodeling your bathroom to include a new quadrant shower, then you are going to have to pick out a quadrant shower tray to install as well. Now, there are all types of trays that you can choose from, but it is very important to know if you have a left or right handed quadrant shower before picking out your tray.

If you have a left handed quadrant, then you will need to have a left handed tray so that the water will drain off right. It will also make the installation a lot easier on you.

The Basics of the Shower Tray

You will need to think about the material that your shower tray is to be made from before picking one out. The most popular and longest lasting trays are made out of cold resin. There are also some acrylic ones out there and, if you have the money for it, you can get one made out of marble or hard non-porous stone. These will add a unique touch to your shower, but can be expensive and difficult to install. A frameless tray is the most popular way to go and gives you a lot more room to utilize in your shower.

One thing that you need to make sure of is the quality of the tray itself. You will want to inspect your tray before you install it to make sure that there aren’t any flaws. One small flaw in your tray could lead to a lot of money from the water damage that might happen. You will also want to try fit it to the area that your shower is to be built to make sure that the dimensions of the tray and the space you have available match up perfectly.

Deciding to put a shower tray in is something that you should think about carefully. You should have a professional come in and install it since it has to be just right in order for the water to drain out properly. If you do it yourself, you should at least have a plumber come in and check it out to see if you did it right.

They can tell you what you might need to change and you can do all the work yourself to help save money. It can be a fun project for anyone that is advanced in the do it yourself aspect, but if this is your first type of project, you should probably think twice before doing something this complicated. Especially if you want it to work properly for you.
