Twist Top Puddle Flange

Twist Top Puddle Flange

Installing The Puddle Flange

  • Install the twist top into the puddle flange, twist to the height of the tiles and use the square plastic insert when tiling, replace this with your grate when finished (this is to keep the grate clean and scratch free)
  • The puddle flange is smooth plastic. It requires the surface to be course so sanding is required. Sand and paint a primer or plumbers glue on the surface of the puddle flange and sprinkled with dry clean sand ready for tiling adhesive application.
  • When grouting the gap between the grate and tiles, ensure the grout is thick and does not contain excess water, grout that contains excess water will crack and fall through any gaps.
  • Wipe all grout from grate before it dries.
  • Please note: Do not fill the puddle flange with tiling adhesive or grout as any water absorbed into the grout lines or that runs under the tiles, needs to drain down the puddle flange, sealing the flange will cause the water to dam and the tiles will start lifting or the water will back up into the rest of the bathroom.
