Case Study - Wetroom In Apartment

Michael Rowntree, a London financier, wanted to upgrade his prestigious apartment on the Albert Embankment in London. This top location deserved the very best money could buy, and Michael wanted to ensure his apartment was transformed into a truly stunning residence.

Showers were already part of the plan, but Michael was unhappy with the overall look of the original design which included a step in shower.

Installer Darren Daughton decided to see what alternative solutions were available. On visiting the Pump Technology website, he quickly discovered Whale’s Dry-Deck pump system was the perfect solution. Dry-Deck allows a small installation depth of the pumped gulley (35mm) and ensured that all the components could be hidden behind a panel in the wetroom. Overall, using Dry-Deck meant that a beautiful wetroom could be installed into the apartment with the reliable pump system hidden behind the wall (see the photograph). Michael was immediately delighted with the idea.

“I like to think of myself as ahead of the game, but clearly I had missed a major development in modern wetrooms,” he said. “When Darren explained to me that I could have a lovely shower area without the need for a step, a tray or even a door I have to admit I was very surprised. I checked it all out and was very impressed with the special pump system developed by Whale. Whale specialists in Shower Drainage Solutions have a long established reputation for reliability. The Dry-Deck system has a well proven history. It was clearly the way forward for modern wetrooms and I had no hesitation in changing the plans so that a lovely wetroom instead of a normal enclosed shower
area could be created.

“I visited the site several times while the wetroom was being created and the installation seemed quick and easy.”

The building work has now been completed and Michael says the creation of a stunning wetroom has added considerably to the value of the apartment. It has already attracted really favourable comments from other apartment owners.
