- Drain Pans for use with any slot drain style sink.
- PROUDLY MADE IN the USA!!
- Works simply by catching the water from various sizes of non-traditional drains, from all types of material- concrete, Corian/solid surface, marble, slate, natural stone, etc.
- Connects to standard 1.5" plumbing (Not Included- Example drain kit sold on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2UktJFV
- Need an in-between pan size? We now offer 'custom made sizes' which we will cut and re-glue the pans here in our shop, but they cost extra, and take us an extra 1-2 days to ship your order! Make sure you specify the exact length of the INSIDE of the pan when you Check Out (there is a box there for special instructions.
- If you want to resize on your own: These pans are ABS plastic and easy for you to customize. Start with a pan larger than what you need, and the ends can be cut off (hacksaw, jigsaw, dremel) and a piece cut to re-close the end and glue to the pan with ABS Glue (sold here on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2WkzxSG). This glue will weld the plastic, making it watertight and very strong. Here is a video showing the process:
- Drain pan attaches to the under side of the sink, catches the water that falls through the sink slot-drain, and drains into standard plumbing connections.
- The small 'Mini' size can be used with any normal bathroom sized sink where a normal round drain isn't desired. Example- using a 1.5" long piece of Plexiglas to create a mini-slot drain on a bathroom sink mold, normally designed for a round hole in the concrete.
- Made of strong Black ABS plastic, 1/8" thick.
- Sloped toward the center to assist water to flow to the drain.
- Drain pan has a small flange lip to provide a surface to silicone for a water-tight seal. Flange can be easily trimmed or sanded down if a smaller overall size is needed.

- *Depth of the drain pan itself does not include the threaded collar which is @3/4" Deep. Most pans have a total height measurement of 2-1/2" when you count the threaded collar)
- Drain Pan connects to standard 1 1/2" diameter plumbing (plumbing tail pipe, p-trap, etc. not included. See above for links to plumbing parts on Amazon).
- Please Note: We have had a few requests recently for UL Certification on the Drain Pans. We are working with Underwriter Laboratories to come up with a testing process and some form of approval, but it may be some time until we have this process completed. In the meantime, if a building inspector will be required to approve the plumbing this Drain Pan is used in conjunction with, you may need to reach out to your local building department and see what they want for it to pass inspection. In most cases, the inspectors have just wanted to visually inspect the pan and see the quality, and water-tight construction, and have then passed them off, or they will ask that the plumber/installer write a simple guarantee for a couple of years, stating they will repair/replace in the event there is a leak with the drain pan.
- For most sinks, when they are fabricated they should be made with a flat area on the bottom of the sink so the drain pan can mount to a flat surface. Typically a 1.5" flat surface to each side of the slot drain is sufficient. Generally after the sink is installed in place, silicone is all that is needed to install the Drain Pan to the bottom of the sink.
- If necessary, secure the drain pan to the sink using screws or strapping.
- Place the drain pan against the sink bottom, position to where it needs to be to catch the water, mark the holes using a sharp pencil, drill out the holes using a masonry drill bit (A hammer drill is recommended for concrete), silicone the lip of the drain pan, place onto the sink, and secure using appropriate screws.
Please note that some of the longer pans, usually 36" and 48" sizes, may have a slight curve in the pan and will go away once installed and the silicone dries, holding the pan to bottom of the sink. You may need to push up on the ends (using a block of wood for example) to hold the ends up while the silicone dries.
- Once installed, the area of the Drain Pan should be periodically flushed with hot water and bleach, usually 10:1 is sufficient (10 parts water, 1 part bleach). Let the bleach 'flush' sit for about 10 minutes, and then flush again with clean hot water. This will keep the Drain Pan area clean and free of mildew.
- An alternative to bleach is to use straight hydrogen peroxide (3% solution). Pour hydrogen peroxide into the Drain Pan, trying to get the solution into all areas of the Drain Pan. Allow to sit 10 minutes, and then flush with hot water.
