I saw an article in our local paper a month or two ago about a newly introduced product line that created a kind of hidden shower drain. I researched it online and SWEAR that I bookmarked for later when I was ready to order one. Looked for the bookmark today and it is nowhere to be found. Grrrrrr. Spent thirty minutes Googling terms like hidden shower drain or grate and plumbing or shower hardware but came up with nothing related to the particular product I was looking for.
This product line consisted of a square metal frame that sat directly over the drain grate onto which you mounted a cut to size tile. Completely surrounding this tiled frame was a thin openeing (1/4" or so) where the water drained into an integrated catch pan that slid over the top of the drain pipe and drain grate. The surrounding tile also (I believe) butted up against a surrounding metal frame edge that protected the edges of the tile but sat just below the tiles edge. The center tiled frame attached to this substructure but could be removed to clean out the grate when needed or provide access to snake the pipe etc.
I'm not at all familiar with shower plumbing hardware manufacturer's other than ones who advertise on TV and sell in Lowes or Home Depot etc. This appeared to be a higher end product manufacturer (based on their prices and product lines) that I had not heard of before.
I was hoping some of you hear might have a clue about or experience with the product I am describing. I would most definitely be grateful for any help on this one.
