  • Oatey shower drains have become a favorite among homeowners since they’re durable and can last for a long time. Their special design includes an adjustable barrel, which allows you to adjust the height of the drain and ensure it matches the height of the shower floor.

    You can always ask your plumber to install an Oatey shower drain, but you can also go the DIY route if you’d like to give it a try. Here are some of the steps you must take to have a successful Oatey shower drain installation.

  • Before you start, make sure you have all the tools you need to complete the project, such as a jigsaw, wrench, utility knife, cement applicator, flat trowel, and a nail or staple gun. Aside from buying the Oatey shower drain, you should purchase a shower pan liner, solvent cement, Portland cement, masking tape, silicone caulk, and pea gravel.

    Disassemble the Oatey shower drain. You should get four main parts which, from the bottom up, are the drain base (which connects with the drain pipe), the reversible clamp ring (which contains the collar bolts), the adjustable drain barrel, and the strainer.

    The WingTite shower drain, Durock drain assembly, Schulter KERDI-DRAIN and Oatey shower drains are among shower drain replacement kits on the market as of January 2016. The WingTite drain, which works with plastic or fiberglass shower bases, has an O-ring that seals it to the drainpipe and four latches that flip out under the shower base, clamping it into place. The Durock drain assembly works with the USG Durock shower system and also with traditional mud bed construction.

The KERDI-DRAIN design allows connection to the shower's waterproof membrane. The membrane adheres to the drain's integrated bonding flange, creating a waterproof connection at the top of the drain assembly. The Durock and KERDI-DRAIN assemblies both feature fleece-covered bonding flanges. Oatey shower drains work with tile or marble showers that use a shower pan liner. The low profile design of Oatey drains make them easy to install in small spaces.
