I've used twice the ACO linear drains , but I didn't like the non flanged one . Pretty difficult to properly do the waterproofing , but not impossible . Any waterproofing products can be used with success if are done right . If someone is looking for a specific warranty -- ex.manufacturer warranty -- , they should stick with only their recommendations addressed in their literature .
The grate fits like a charm and easy to use or remove for future cleaning .
I've always use marked reference lines for monitoring the water levels on flood tests and don't like the coin measuring device . If the coin is tipped it may work better but I prefer the accuracy of marked lines to specific levels .
I wouldn't go into personal debates about other members -- on this site or other ones -- on personal level .
