    He didn't take to show off , John .

    It was in a getting rid of a bad dream -- a left foot starter -- . It didn't work in his favor for the second period .

    Is this a sign of what can also happen to them -- see Spain --?

    We should probably start a thread with what is called this tile or marble or ....... he likes points so he should have an extra one after each five ones .


    I think the price tag will be around 750$ all done , but is worthy .

    If I look around , you can see Kohler , Bosch , Grohe , Riobel , etc. all present there in your face .

    My work with my name present , priceless . We should be proud of our accomplishments . :)

    Kerdi Line Drain or ACO Linear Drain - Tile Insert Grate Comparassion

    If you think about it the grate design is a little flawed. Would the thin set holding the tile to the Kerdi Line grate not be constantly getting soak from four sides? I never liked this design from Schluter.

    Now I'm partially but the tile insert grate from ACO is a like a dish. So the four sides are sealed somewhat. I think this makes sense

    I use epoxy grout on most of showers with linear drain installs combined with premium thin-set , like GR or K&K . I am not worried about any soaking from for sides .

    I agree with you that the Linear drain from ACO is a charm to maintain clean . The grate is also perfect in many ways including handling when in need of removal .

    I would work with any linear drain client provides and adjust my approach accordingly .

    Drain pan from India is made by ACO

    Nope. That's an ACO shower pan.

    The entire ACO line will slowly be making it's way to North America. I wish it would come sooner. I can not wait to start selling these babies!

    I like the side outlet design for the condo work. When you can not easily change the location of the shower without neighbours permission.

    The Indian ACO drain is juts one of many drain pans ACO sells in Europe. They are just settling in with the linear drains these past few years. Last time I spoke with ACO's salesman back East he tells me the full line of Drainage products will slowly take place. Some of the tray systems are pretty slick.
