Cons of the strip drain
- Often requires high preparation in the floor to install

- Can over time becomes swollen and not easy to take out
To summarise strip drains are a fantastic addition to a bathroom that requires a high degree of drainage. It’s best to use them in wet rooms or walk-in showers when you often have large tiles and require maximum fall to one centre. If you are frameless showers, or hobless frameless showers regardless of if you have a door or not that are great for allowing you to have those much larger tiles to work in your bathroom. They do have problems over time with taking them out to clean but they are have got better with the finishes these days so you should not have that issue as much or if any.
Last Tip – Do not and I say do not lose the hook tool that comes with them as it is the best thing to remove the grate.
