Additionally, are linear drains better? Linear drains come in many different lengths, up to as long as 72”. It's important to know that both types of drains take the water away with equal efficiency. Unless you have an unusually large amount of water in your shower, either type will work. In most cases a point drain will cost less than a linear drain.
Additionally, how long should a linear drain be?
This depends on the size of the shower area and most importantly the location of the shower drain. Length needs to be the exact distance between both walls, the wall tiles are placed on the shower drain's flange. Length needs to be smaller than the distance between both walls with at least 8-10 cm on both sides.
