Linear Drain Installation Guide
Okay with this shower bench, we want to make sure that there is no movements. So we’re gonna lift with nail, with liquid nail, in every connections and rubber screws. We do not use nails in this kind of construction where you want it permanent and no movement. We want it to become one unit here. We wanna have backing for the sheetrock, the 4th piece of sheetrock will come here, and then we wanna have backing for the sheetrock to tie in along here this board will be about right there for backing for the sheetrock. And of course we’ll have boards right here, here, to make sure this has a sloped angle out towards the edge here so if the water runs off, we’ll continue on.
Hey you guys, the beautiful thing about the Trugard Vapor Shield System is that you install this before you do the membrane. With the other systems, they put the shower pan in and put the backer board and then they build this on the inside, creating possible leaks and puncturing their rubber shower pans. This, we do everything before, all the structural before and then we’re gonna put on the outside layer, we come in the sheetrock. We’re gonna put on the outside layer is where we’ll put the thin-set mortar and the vapor shield keeping it all waterproof all the way out on the very front after all of the work’s done. So, this is not going anywhere guys, this is looking really good. That is one solid baby! That is one solid seat there. Seat on, relax. Seat on, relax while you’re on the shower, shave your legs.
Alright so, the floor will be up about an inch and a half, this will be about 20” total. 18”- 20” is how high you want your seat to be. 20” if you’re a taller person. Some people will go higher if they’re really tall. But the normal 6 foot person about 20” less than that, shorter people about 18”, and a normal house chair is 18”. Alright you guys, I got to put a block here, and here and we are good to go. Alright, we got our hardi board cut, put it on the front and on the top, so we’re gonna go ahead and do that. Again, liquid nail is critical. Alright, we got this, gets in there good, gets in there great. We’re gonna simply scribe that right there, draw a line.
There we have it! Beautiful, solid, shower bench!
