New Durock Shower System from USG

The banner for the new Durock shower system is at the top of the page, and I know there will be many questions and comments. Click on the USG banner to learn more, and ask your questions here.

Steve Rausch will be our communicator for USG. He has been in on the program from the start.

Which color goes best with your skin tone?

Grey tends to make me look pallid.

Orange is bright and cheery.

Red makes me look bloodshot

Those WW2 vets like the Olive Drab

The light blue has that typical swimming pool / water feature color which brings out my eyes.

Wow. My head hurts already. Will have to take a close look at the system and give one a try.

Wow, did the Schluter patent expire or something? Everything but the drains looks like a direct copy.

It looks like a little Ebbe inspiration for the drains.

The drains were in fact heavily influenced by Ebbe, but the final products are not Ebbe, and Ebbe drains will not work with the Durock drain.

There is no line drain . . . yet.

I'm putting a bid together for a 4x7 shower. Any chance of getting a "demo" kit to try it out. I promise to post pictures and lots of comments!

C'mon, Juan, do you see a 4x7 kit listed on their site anywhere?

Guess they'll need to find a way to accommodate other shower sizes, though, so let me look into that for you. Don't confuse that wishy-washy response for a yes.

They will eventually be taking orders for custom size floors, but for now I would figure on doing a mud floor for that job.
