Below are the recommended fitting instructions for the AquaFix Snail Cubicle:-

Step 1AquaFix Installation Guide
Lay the shower tray into the required position. Through the drain in the shower tray mark the floor to show where the drain will sit (in order to get your plumbing in the correct location) Carefully remove the shower tray and store somewhere safe.

 

 

 

Step 2AquaFix Installation Guide
Remove flooring as necessary to carry out works to the wastepipe. Please note that if there is a joist in the way of the shower drain base you will need to consult a professional joiner or structural engineer for advice.
Handy Hint:
The Cubicle can be installed with a Substrate Element which is available to purchase separately through your retailer. The Substrate Element will raise the tray an additional 80mm and is used where your waste and wastepipe cannot be located with the floor joists.

 

Step 3AquaFix Installation Guide
For water to drain away properly, the wastepipe must have a fall of at least 3cm per metre. Make any alterations to your wastepipe to meet the position marked in step 1. The wastepipe must be properly supported to hold its own weight and that of the shower drain base. Spread solvent weld adhesive around the inside of the shower drain connector. Push the shower drain base onto the shower drain connector with a twisting action. Spread solvent weld adhesive around the inside of the opposite end of the shower drain connector and then slide onto the wastepipe with a twisting action. Once the solvent weld has set; pour water down the drain to check that the waste is not blocked and that there are no leaks. Replace the flooring ensuring that an adequate hole has been cut to allow for the shower drain base to be exposed through the floor. Smear some lubricant around the black rubber seal on the shower drain base. Please note: The hole size should be no bigger than 180 x 180mm.

Step 5AquaFix Installation Guide
Put on the protective gloves and wear eye and breathing protection. Mix the 5kg bag of adhesive with approximately 1 Litre of water in a clean bucket which will give the adhesive a stiff consistency. Spread the adhesive onto the floor of the shower position and drag the notched adhesive trowel across the surface. The notched adhesive trowel will make a ribbed pattern which will leave just the right amount of adhesive on the floor.

 

 

Step 6AquaFix Installation Guide
Place the shower tray into position and bed down onto the adhesive cement. Check that the shower tray is level in both directions using a suitable level.

 

 

 

 

Step 7AquaFix Installation Guide
Put your fingers through the drain hole in the shower tray . Push down on the shower tray and pull the shower drain base upwards until it clicks into place into the drain hole in the shower tray .

 

 

 

Step 8AquaFix Installation Guide
Ease the shower drain internal bowl into the shower drain base . Ease the shower drain internal dome into the shower drain base . When you have finished you can remove the protective gloves and eye and breathing protection.

 

 

 

Step 9AquaFix Installation Guide
Using a tape measure, measure the distance between the surface of the shower tray and the ceiling. We recommend that you take an additional 5mm from your measurements so that the assembly can be lifted into position more easily. Carefully mark the cut position on each wall section, & using a pencil and straight edge. Cut the sections carefully using a hard point saw.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The vertical assembly opening has a strengthening (clear plastic) strip at one side to help support the shower door profile/hinges. Please ensure that you flip the assembly to the correct orientation for your application, i.e., door swing. We strongly recommend that you make note of which side the strengthening strip has been installed as this will not be evident once the cubicle has been tiled.
If you plan to install your Cubicle with the optional Flat Roof (available to purchase separately), you may wish to skip this step and immediately follow Step 10 before then gluing the Flat Roof into position using a thin wavy line of Fix-PU.

Step 10
Offer the vertical assembly into place on top of the shower tray. Hold the assembly in place.
Note: Do NOT glue the vertical sections together at this stage. Using a pencil, mark around the inside of the vertical assembly on the shower base and at the point where it meets the ceiling*

*If you are installing the Flat Roof option you will not need to mark the ceiling. Apply a thin wavy line of Fix-PU within the marks you made previously as shown.

Step 11
Assemble the shower wall assembly adhering the first section into place. Apply a thin wavy line of Fix-PU across the vertical side of one tongue and groove section then offer the next section into place and apply gentle pressure to bond the sections together. Repeat for each of the sections that make up the shower wall. Next, adhere the Top Header to either side of the opening with a thin wavy line of Fix-PU. Ensure that the Top Header is held in position with a long screw fixing either side.

Step 12
Ensure that the walls are level and that the opening size is square by measuring at various points of the opening, making sure the dimensions remain constant. We recommend using ratchet straps at the top and bottom to help maintain the shape whilst the adhesive cures. Allow the Fix-PU to set for approx. 3 – 5 hours.

Step 13AquaFix Installation Guide
Run a bead of Fix-MD where the vertical assembly meets the shower tray base . The ratchet straps can now be removed, and the sacrificial footer can be disposed of.

 

 

 

Step 14
From the roll of waterproofing Tape measure and cut two vertical lengths to the height of the vertical assembly. Put on the protective gloves and wear eye and breathing protection. Put on the protective gloves and wear eye and breathing protection. Using the Pro-SEAL Pre-MIX tape sealer and paintbrush , apply a thin layer of Pro-SEAL tape sealer where the vertical sections meet one another, slightly wider than the Waterproofing Tape width. Bed the Waterproofing Tape into the Pro-SEAL Pre-MIX tape sealer then apply a further thin layer of Pro-SEAL tape sealer over the Waterproofing Tape. Repeat this for the second joint.

Step 15AquaFix Installation Guide
Place the disposable tiling aid into the shower drain hole on the shower tray . The tiling aid provides the edge that needs to be tiled up to whilst protecting the drain from debris.

 

 

 

 

Step 16AquaFix Installation Guide
After tiling the shower tray the shower drain top can be fitted. Gently place the shower drain top into the shower tray . Measure from the top of the finished tile to the top of the shower drain top . From the opposite end/bottom of the shower drain top mark the same distance as previously measured. Using a hard point saw, cut the excess from the bottom of the shower drain top . Depending on your cutting skill, it may be necessary to file or sandpaper the cut edge to make it completely flat.

 

 

 

Step 17AquaFix Installation Guide
Place a small blob of tile adhesive in the middle of all four sides of the shower drain hole in the shower tray . Gently ease the shower drain top into position in the shower tray . Leave to set for approximately 3 to 5 hours.

 

 

 

 

Step 18AquaFix Installation Guide
Fill the gap between the edges of the shower drain top and the start of the tiles with the same grout used during tiling. Place the shower drain finishing grate into position. Leave to dry for at least 24 hours before using the shower.
