 – Step 1: Position the tray of your classic shower.

 – Step 2: Install the drain and seal your classic shower.

 – Step 3: Assemble the sleeves to the drain hose of your classic shower.

 – Step 5: Attach your classic shower tray to the walls.

For a bathroom on a budget, installing a standard shower is the best option. Functional and space-saving, the shower tray is easy to install, even for the uninitiated.

 This post explains, in steps, how to install a standard shower.

 1. Position the tray of your classic shower.

 Place your shower tray in its final location. Check that it is level with a spirit level. If it’s not level, put it on its edge to adjust the mounting feet and adapt them to the floor.

 – Replace the tray and recheck the level.

 – If the tray is level, place it back on its edge to tighten the adjustable feet with a wrench.

 2. Install the drain and gasket for your classic shower.

 – With the tray still on edge, place the gasket underneath to match the drain hole already present.

 – Place the drain plug after the gasket.

 – Attach the other part of the drain with the supplied hardware to the top of the receiver.

 Note: the drain screw is also used to secure the gasket.

3. Assemble the sleeves to the drain hose of your classic shower.

Installing a Classic Shower

 – Smooth out the overflowing seal with your finger.

– Take a sleeve (fitting) from the drainage system and apply a special bathroom silicone sealant to the inside.

 – Attach the drain hose to this sleeve by fitting it into place.

 – Take the second sleeve and apply bathroom silicone sealant to the inside.

 – Insert the clamping ring on the sleeve and fit the other end of the drain hose inside the sleeve.

 – Smooth the seal with your finger.

 4. Attach the drain hose to the drain of your conventional shower and connect it to the drain.

 – Place the gasket inside the sleeve with the clamping ring.

 – Screw the sleeve to the drain under the shower tray using the clamping ring.

 – Place the receiver near the drain.

 – Sand the contour of the drain hose sleeve.

 – Sand the inside of the drain pipe embedded in the wall.

 – Glue the outline of the sleeve and the inside of the drainpipe with special drain fitting glue.

 – Insert the sleeve into the drain pipe.

 – Let it dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

 5. Attach your classic shower tray to the walls.

 Important: Before placing the shower tray in its final position, check for leaks by running water through the tray and inspecting the hose and fittings, as well as the drain seal.

 – Glue the two sides of the shower tray that will contact the walls with a sealing compound.

 – Position the shower tray in its final location by clamping it to the walls. If you have heavy shims, place them to hold the tray firmly against the wall.

 Necessary: allow the sealant to dry before taking your first shower.
