    Just to clarify that when you say line drains you mean linear drains?

    Hi John,

    Just been looking at the Noble linear drains and am impressed by the design of it. Seems to be quite easy to install and easy to connect to a noble membrane. Couple of questions:

    1. They talk about a "full bed mortar installation" and a "thin-bed install". When would you use the full bed install method? I still got lots to learn on this.

    2. Would you recommend this drain or is their a better one that you would recommend? Price of course is of concern but installation procedure and size will play a role.

    Noble then ACO then Proline then Schluter??

    Looking for any feedback on these that might help me select one over the other. Feel free to private message me if you prefer.

    thx,

    Nice looking point drains.

    I'll contact the guy from ACO this week but in looking at their drains, in terms of vertical space requirements, there is a requirement for 1.5" of mortar and tile above the membrane and the membrane is approx. 1" from the floor so 2.5" from the floor in total which is not gonna work for me.

    Noble drain to me might work. I'll contact the Noble guy as well. Of course I'll mention to both that you recommended that I call you.

    Hi John,

    Just looked at QuickDrain Proline Drain. Looks to me that the drain body sits on the floor and then you just tile up from there. To me that would mean the top of the drain is about 1/2" above the floor rather than 2.5" with the ACO drain. I could then easily use this drain. Am I missing something here?

    I will make some calls and did into this a bit more. Addressing your comment:

    ....where is this 1.5" build up you speak of?

    My inspector allowed an electric towel warmer just outside the tub/shower as long as it was wired directly into a GFCI. I have mine on a separate GFCI CB. I have it wired to a Lutron timer with clock. This also has an override, but only will keep it on through the next 15-minute segment.
