AF1-9 Hidden tray fitting instructions


- The following steps are a guide to the installation of the Aqua floor tanking system. If you have any questions please contact livinghouse.co.uk

 


- Ensure joists are in sound condition and have a maximum distance of 400mm centres. It is important that floor joists are level in all directions.


- Rest the wetroom tray onto the joists into the desired position. Ensure the waste position of the tray does not interfere with the joist lay out.

 


- Mark the hidden tray position on the joists then remove the tray leaving a clearly marked guide.


- Install timber supports between the joists ready to install the tray sub-floor. Install a support for the drain waste at 88mm below the top of the joists.

 


- The sub-floor support battens should be installed 24mm below the top of the joists.


- Place the drain body with the sealing flange into position and connect your waste pipe ensuring there is sufficient fall to allow water to drain away correctly.

 


- Install 22mm moisture resistant chipboard to the joists leaving the marked hidden tray area clear.


- Install 24mm marine plywood between the joists screwing to the timber supports. Allow a hole for the drain.

 


- Place the shower tray into position and check heights. The tray should be 6mm proud of the surrounding chipboard. Remove tray and apply flexible tile adhesive to the sub-floor.


- Install the tray with a 100% bond between the two surfaces. This will ensure the hidden tray is flat and water will drain correctly.

 


- The tray should now sit 8mm proud of the surrounding chipboard. This will allow the tanking boards to be installed flush with the tray.


- Screw the top of the drain to the trap through the top of the tray, use the supplied plastic tightening key. Insert the removable odour barrier.

 


- If waterproof tanking boards are being used on the walls it is advised that a minimum board thickness of 10mm is required.


- Using a flexible adhesive install the tanking boards to the chipboard sub-floor ensuring a 100% bond between surfaces.

 


- The installation of the wetroom tanking boards should be fitted in a brick bond pattern and be installed flush to each other and the shower tray.


- Using the primer supplied, paint over all joints between the tanking boards, tray and walls 75mm either side of the joints. Allow a minimum of 4 hours to dry.

 


- Apply the tanking tape supplied to the primed joints over the floor area ensuring good adhesion between the surfaces.


- Ensure all floor joints have been covered including around tray edge.

 


- Fit the pre-made corners to your wet room using the internal and external corners supplied.


- Apply the tanking tape to wall and floor junction. The tape must be folded at a 90 degree angle.

 


- If waterproof boards are being used on the walls then repeat the steps to prime and seal the joints as shown for the floor and tray.


- Depending on your tiling requirements you may decide to tile the walls prior to installing the floor tiles or vice versa.

 


- When installing the floor tiles ensure you use a good quality tile adhesive and the tiles are 100% bonded.


- Please note larger tiles will require cutting at diagonals (as shown in picture) This will allow the tiles to follow the falls of the wet room tray.

 


- Smaller tiles (as shown in picture) can easily follow the falls of the hidden shower tray without the need for diagonal cutting.


- Livinghouse can also supply all of your designer bathroom product requirements such as wetroom screens, sanitary ware and towel rails.

 


- Thank you for choosing the Aqua floor tanking system. If you have any questions on the fitting of the wet room tanking system please contact Livinghouse.co.uk
