  • 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.

    Asked Apr 7, 2008, 07:40 PM — 1 Answer
    I read a number of "answers" on this topic, but none seem to cover my type of drain installation. BTW - Tom (speedball1) had a number of nice explanations.
    First of all, it is my 2nd floor shower drain that is leaking, as there is discoloration on the drywall ceiling directly below the drain (in the kitchen). We just moved in to this house which was unoccupied for a year so it is hard to tell if the previous owner had the same problem, used the other upstairs shower, and just repainted the lower ceiling.
    Anyway, the I ran a hose down the drain and didn't notice any further wetness on the ceiling below so it seems to be immediate drain area. Also, when showering, there is no standing water in the shower floor (the shower drains well). The stall is a fiberglass type enclosure and is well caulked at all seams.
    Attached is a picture of the drain after I took off the strainer cover and scraped off a black "gasket -like" ring which was brittle and easily broke into three pieces when popped with a screwdriver. My question is: Is there an obvious fix for this situation? I looked at the WingTite Replacement Shower Drain, but the instructions on how to remove the existing drain are not really clear. I seem to have a 2" PVC type stub which is cemented in place around the circumference. What do I need to "cut out"? Would I cut all the way to the metal ring?
    Also, do I really need a whole new drain, or can I just re-caulk the top area with silicone?
    I'm pretty handy with do-it-yourself repairs, but I like to know what I am doing?

    Thanks in advance for any expert replies.

    Wing Tite Shower drain.
    Della,
    If you do not use the shower adapter, I may be interested in purchasing it if the price and shipping is right.
