How to Install a Complete Shower System in One Day

Earlier this year, we had the very exciting opportunity to announce the launch of the USG Durock TM Brand Infinity Drain®  Shower System. It might be a mouthful to pronounce, but trust us when we state it’s the exact opposite when it comes to installation. This completely waterproofed, linear drain shower system creates a high-end look that is quick and easy to install, allowing for a barrier-free design, and flexibility with tile options.

Can it really be done in a day?

So, you ask, “How exactly can a shower system be installed in one day?” Our shower system requires no drying time at all. This means that the tile can be laid down right after the shower is installed, unlike any other traditional shower installation.

Other benefits include:

  • Ready to install accessories such as benches, niches, and curbs
  • Vapor barrier rated for continuous steam showers
  • Lightweight material
  • Adjustable and customizable
  • Easy to install
  • Moisture control/waterproof system from floor to ceiling
  • And last – but not certainly not least – no dry time
