Raisig my shower drain (Extend-o-Drain)

Hey every one. OK I messed up ... after doing my mortar bed in the shower i left the drain a bit too low for the tile floor so now the drain is not at the same level as the tile floor.

It’s a square drain and trust me I tried turning it to increase the height but it would not budge. Here is the issue, i was told about the extend-o-drain product so i went ahead and finish the tile job on the floor figuring that i would just use that. Now i see they only have ROUND drain extenders.

Does any one know of a similar product for SQUARE drains?

Tearing out the tile and chiseling the bed mortar is not an option, i would rather live wit the diff in height than tearing it up.

Any ideas are welcomed.

Thanks for the Number Pulpo. Unfortunately they tell me that they do not do square extenders. I might try to use te round and rig something

hope this helps..

I signed up just for this question so i hope this helps.

when this happens to us on residential or commercial drains that are low,
we use a metal tile edge protector like a Terrazzo Strips or a Schluter - Schiene

Hello Ceramictec and i appreciate that you signed upfor the forum to give me feed back. I like your idea, i saw those strips from Schluter at Home Depot so i'll give that a try.

Thanks again;

Is the drain PVC or brass? If it is brass, you should be able to keep tapping, with a shop vac sucking up the dust and chips as you go and finally loosen the drain. Just don't get carried away and dent the brass out of shape. You can also carefully cut the drain top out with a reciprocating saw and replace the drain top.
