Flo FX drain?

Hey guys, I found this new drain manufacturer browsing the web today and it looks interesting, like he's taken the best parts of the Schluter, Laticrete, and Durock drains and combined them together to make a new unit. Anyone heard of these guys or used one of them before? I'm thinking of ordering one for an upcoming shower, it's interesting enough to check out IMO. https://flofx.com/

I have a few on the shelf. I have a shower in the works that I will be using one on, bitt I haven't installed one yet. It is a lot like the USG one. I made this video to post in the USG durock shower system thread about 6 months ago. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1ViFrgMYXvc. I like that you can use them with whatever waterproofing you want

We have a thread on that drain, Cody. I can't find it.

Is this where you remember seeing it? Or is there a separate thread entirely

That's almost certainly it, Shawn. Thanks.

Probably aughta get a moderator to separate it out from the Durock Membrane thread, eh?

Thanks for digging that up, I'll take a look. Talked to the company owner today and it turns out that most of the plastic parts are made in the same town in Utah that I live in, small world eh? Good to see some USA made stuff on the market!

Guess I should have made a separate thread, but it looked so close to the usg drain I thought maybe they had found someone to produce their stuff

FloFX drains seem to be rapidly growing in popularity. We sell them on our custom foam website and the FloFX sales are increasing monthly at a nice pace.

He just launched a tile-in grate last week or so.

The biggest difference to me is the overall height is just under 2 inches tall. The competition is just over 4 inches tall as seen in this video. If your joist bay doesn't give you a lot of room to work (which is commonly the case) that extra 2 inches goes a long way.

Ordered one for my next job, if it's as good as it seems then I'm excited to have a new option for drains, especially if it's a small local company. I'll report back after the install!

Ordered yesterday morning, drain showed up this AM! Super fast shipping. Install went smooth using the clamping ring adapter, so far I like the extra stiffness around the edges compared to the Kerdi drain, it makes pressing it into the deck mud easier. They also supply a drain cover to use during install and tiling to keep debris out of the pipe, good idea.
