Upcoming episode will air June 20, 2019, on PBS
DENVER, JUNE 20, 2019 — The virtually invisible linear WallDrain from QuickDrain USA will be featured in an upcoming episode of the Emmy Award-winning television show THIS OLD HOUSE® on PBS. Episode 3825, “Brookline Mid-century Modern House” (Season 40, Episode 12), follows the installation of a concealed linear shower drain in a young family’s split-level mid-century home in Brookline, Mass.

The episode will include the installation of the stainless steel WallDrain, where the linear drain body is concealed behind the base of the shower wall — rendering it virtually invisible in the home’s master bathroom.
The radically different concept in shower drains positions the linear drain trough in the wall and hidden by a magnetic tile cover that allows water to exit via the shower floor’s downward slope, resulting in a seamless and fully integrated design.
The ADA-compliant and UPC-approved WallDrain features a 316L marine grade stainless steel drain body and accommodates shower lengths of 26-inches to 96-inches. The integrated drain, combined with a pre-sloped shower pan and waterproofing, represents a total shower solution for eliminating leaks and standing water.
QuickDrain USA General Manager Chris Oatey said his entire team was honored by the opportunity to participate in the show.
“Our team is thrilled to have such a unique and cool shower drain installed in this young family’s home,” says Oatey. “I grew up watching This Old House, and it’s a bit surreal to see our drain on this same program that has inspired so many renovations.”
The Brookline episodes air nationally on Thursdays at 8 p.m. Eastern, as the first half of the This Old House Hour; and Season 40, Episode 12, will be posted online at www.thisoldhouse.com/watch/brookline-mid-century-modern-house.
