Pros and Cons of Point Drains

A point drain for your shower can be a great choice for several reasons. For one, they are a very affordable option in comparison to non-traditional waste styles. Spare parts are also inexpensive, thus making up-keep nice and easy without hurting the pocket.  Point drains are also easier to install when compared to channel drains.

Here at Newline Showers, our point drains feature a sleek and minimalistic design for both acrylic and tile options. Available in both chrome and black finishes, these are designed to blend in with the overall aesthetic of your bathroom.

Point Drains for Acrylic Showers

When it comes to cleaning, center wastes are easier to maintain than other types of drains due to the cleverly designed inner cup that catches any debris or build-up that may accumulate, which is then easy to remove and clean.

While a point drain can be a great, cost-effective choice, there are some downsides to consider as well. One of the disadvantages of a point drain is that it may not be able to handle large volumes of water as effectively as other types of drains. Because the water flows directly into the center waste, it may not be able to drain as quickly as a channel drain for example, as these have a larger surface area. This is also something to consider if you have a larger shower, as this effects the rate at which the water flows to the drain.

Overall, a point drain is a great option for those on a tighter budget, not wanting to compromise on style, longevity and maintenance. Give our friendly team a call on 0508 639 5463 or email us today at [email protected] today to discuss if a point drain is the right option for you.
