Factors To Consider When Buying Manufactured Home Shower Drain Options


Irrespective of the size of the mobile home, it is very important to have a showering unit that’s not only affordable but one that is also comfortable to use. As a matter of fact, a good shower unit should also be easy to maintain and clean. This is why most of these shower units are usually made from materials such as acrylic and Gel coat before being strengthened with fiberglass which has been further reinforced by some polyester material so as to ensure that the units are not only safe for use but are also quite durable.  

Whether you are installing a new shower or tub, or simply just replacing the drain on your old unit, there are several standard parts which you will need or require. These include mundane items such as an all purpose cement and plumbers putty to other intricate and vital parts such as the pop-up drain assembly, the swivel connector with washer and the two pieces of P trap.

It is worth mentioning that mobile home shower drains are usually standardized with the only difference being between the drains used in tubs which have an overflow and those which don’t have one. An overflow is basically an opening between the spout and the drain which allows the tub to escape once the tub is full. An overflow is important though because it does act as cleanout, making it quite easy to completely snake the tub or shower drain so as to remove hair and any other build up which may be present.
