Searching for Schluter roman tub drain info

Does anyone have a link to the info sheet for this drain? Talked to my rep and he was supposed to email me the info but he's lagging.

Schluter roman tub drain info

Hi Obie,

Did you find any info on using a roman tub drain with the Schluter system?

I'm attempting something similar... basically a 36" X 36" tiled shower/tub with a 10" high curb that could occasionally be used as a bathtub for small kids and/or pets... I've searched the forums and found alot of horror stories (!) and not many success stories. What was your project and how did it turn out?

Many thanks in advance!

Jon

Actually Jon, My Schluter rep sent me pictures of the drain so I know it exists but he never got me a solid price. After a few calls and emails I waited for a few weeks for the info I needed and never got it. Homeowner wound up ordering a standard tub, kinda bummed I lost the chance to do one of these. From the bits and pieces I gathered, your looking at about 4-5 hundred bucks for the whole assembly. Id say contact your local rep and hopefully he isn't as busy as mine.

Thanks Obie!

Those pictures are are very close to what I have in mind... I'll shoot them to my rep and see if I get a reply (Not that I've had much luck with him so far... ).

Now I need to figure out if local codes will require me to have an overflow drain...

Thanks again!

J

PS by "4-5 hundred bucks for the whole assembly" do you mean just the drain assembly? (!)

Hi Guys,

The Schluter roman tub drain is a one-off make by a craftsman in Italy. Have your rep help you special order it. I'll warn you now, though. It's super expensive.

You can make your own with a standard Kerdi-drain and a barrel type tub lever set-up. The stopper is in the overflow tube. You use a 1-1/2 X 2-in. bushing in the drain. I used to have a crude drawing, but I can't find it right now.

John, I would be very interested in taking a peek at your drawing. I am seriously considering putting a roman tub in my master bath at home.

I built a whirlpool jet tub 50" x 84" walled up on 3 sides with shower attached on the open end, just used the shower drain for the overflow.
I paid $323.00 for a closable drain also keep in mind they only come in 3 colors, Brushed Nickel, Brushed Brass & Brushed Copper/Bronze.

I am building a tub next week in a home that is in a bathroom for the grandkids. They want a large shallow tub the kids can play in. I did this one a few years back and the plumber had this drai in that seemed pretty standard.

I was at Home Depot yesterday and found tub drain kits for $30 that I know I could make work by floating the bottom of the tub floor into it and then use a product like hydroban to waterproof it all together.

This tub I'm posting I made the front wall out of bricks then floated everything and waterproofed it all with aqua -d

I made a little mock up so the client could see my idea on using some penny round tile's as a feature stripe.

I have been looking for a drain and think I am just going to adapt a brass drain assembly with a added braised ring for a divot. Drill some holes above the divot for weep holes. Pop up drain will make the system work and it will have a overflow so it will be closer to code.
