DIY - Shower tray
• DIY - Shower tray
In this review, I want to tell you, in the apartment, you can build a nice shower.
Let's start with the theory - how many times a year you take a bath? It is a bath? In today's world bystrozhivuschem carve out an hour to manage a bath once every six months - however, this statement is true, primarily, for a single man.
At other times, you have to periodically lift up the leg / foot, climbed into the tub, balancing on narrow sloping sides and risked their lives to come out with a wet, smooth and curved surface, again, lifting his legs above the knee.
If it is necessary to clean up, "better", then inviting friends, take a beer and go to the bath.
Only one way out - be it a shower!
Important! Do have to shower with siphon served:
That is when we take out a clogged siphon (knee bent portion of a water channel) - it is collapsible - and easily cleanse Yorshik pipe.
Again, it is important! The bottom of the shower tray should be non-slip!
Theoretically, you can take the finished pallet and wall up it to the floor and wall. But nothing can replace the feeling of satisfaction from the work done by their own hands. Again, enameled tray slides and acrylic - yellow with time.
So, prepare / sweeping the surface:
Ordinary process the mastic asphalt floor - to avoid the so-called.. capillary suction - in other words, to a brick does not dampen.
Stel thin film greenhouse - or ordinary oilcloth.
We reach the brick - I had 40 pieces of silica cladding, but you better use the ordinary red - it is waterproof.
Doing masonry, setting the lower part of the ladder in the shower drainage system - through otvodochek. Attention! Strains must be out of the system at an angle of 30 degrees, not 90! Otherwise it will be difficult to clean!
is chamfered corner, firstly, beauty, and secondly in order not to hurt him by passing from the toilet (upper left corner) to the shell (right middle).
Purely practically, from the absence of this corner you will not suffer - the payload had absolutely no.
Laying by the meter is on the eyes, I got 90x90 cm The solution I used the EC-1000 -. He is thick-tile adhesive.
After three or four days, cover the tray with putty again. For water resistant.
Display the board higher, do more screed. To the water flowed into the shower trap, the bottom of the pallet derive a certain similarity rectangular funnel with a bias-half centimeter to the center (which is the drain hole ladder).
Use plaster beacons. Do not forget to take them out after use - not corroded!
mosaic - I bought on paper, there are options with a grid. White tile adhesive (EK-6000) fine notched trowel applied to the surface, slap paper top (paper and then take off) mosaic prozhimaem all the small squares with your fingers and slap the next. Triangles and other corners bites conventional cutters.
After three hours (or the next day, as you wish) - we carry a wet cloth over the paper, and after a few minutes remove it all.
Knead again, white tile adhesive, overwrites it in the slot with a rubber spatula, half an hour later with a wet cloth remove the excess - where the sticks, we achieve a level plane.
After a couple of days, you can put a steel cap in the shower trap (I have it temporarily removed) - zadornut curtain and you can take a shower!
