    Default 4" shower drain

    Trying to find a 4" shower drain(pipe dia. Not strainer size) for a small pond. I may be referring to it wrong which would mess up my google search. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Josh

    No such thing but you could probably use a floor drain instead.

    There's an old one I'm trying to replace so yes there is such a thing. Like I said at that size it may be reffered to as something else. I'm on a phone but I'll try to post a pic of what I'm trying to replace.

    Nobody makes a "shower drain" that will take 4" pipe. I'm sure you have a 4" drain but I'd bet that it's a floor or roof drain that has been adapted.

    "Floor drains" ARE shower drains, but your application would determine whether that is the best item for you usage.

    Ok so Ive done some more searching. Im looking for a 4" adjustable floor drain with membrane, the other way it may be listed is as an 8" shower grid. A 6" grid will go to a 3" drain which is probably good enough for my application. Now if only they would make em cheaper than $200 for a hunk of plastic...

    1. Who charges $200.00 for a "hunk of plastic"
    2. A cast iron one with a brass strainer would only cost a bit more than half that.
