How To Measure Your Shower Drain – Video

Measuring Your Drain & Choosing The Right Drain For You!

Our designer shower drains are the simplest shower update you can make to your bathroom.

A couple of things to know if you are replacing your shower drains are the measurements. In most cases, you should have two measurements before you place an order.
Please note the distance across your existing drain, and the center-to-center of the fastening holes.
If you are working with new construction, and your contractor has yet to make a decision for the drain rough you can select to buy a full shower drain kit which includes everything needed for installation.
Knowing the make of drain rough-in you are using helps before you order.
If you have the drain rough, but do not know the make just measure just as explained below.
