The current shower is built from wood, with thick layers of Poly-Urethane over it. The floor is sloping draining the shower water in a trough which directs the water to a tank with a pump, then toward the kitchen area where it goes overboard.
The tank in the middle of the floor is only 11 cm high, so any other commercially available tank is too high for that space. At the same time ti is more logic to evacuate the water on the shower side, than to direct all the way to the other side. So this is going to happen. I got a Whale shower pump, with the 2 point collection sump, this sump can collect the shower and the sink in the head. and because the sump has the sensor, the pump can be mounted high and dry away. At first we explored the possibility of making a glass fiber shower base, with a decent edge, so the floor could be fairly level. Now the wood floor has a decent grade. And we would keep the wood side. So many hours of google was spend abusing our eyes and asking others how to best solve this. Marc cam up with a tub drain, since they flow out immediately with a 90 degree angle, keeping the floor as low as possible. We looked to tiling the sides….too much work.
Then we found douchemeister and found a few fun options ( barging should be fun) and finally decided why not do both sides. So here are our 3 options.
Then for a shower base we found dammekunstoffen.nl
