Installation kit for VXpipe (reduced installation height)
This kit reduces the required installation height for all VXpipe versions by ca. 10cm. This is possible by introducing a ‘turbo-rotator’ which is placed on top of the VXpipe, rather than the T-piece and the 2 pieces 45 degrees elbows that are used in the original kit.
- 1x TURBO rotator – ABS, 50mm for connection to shower drain
- 2x mounting brackets with screws
- 1x 50mm cap
- 1x 50mm coupling insert with O-ring
When to use this kit?
This kit should be used if installation height is limited, and the combined height of VXpipe with the normal drain connections would be too high for the room.
If there is sufficient installation height available, we recommend to use the original kit, because it provides more flexibility in the connections to the drain water and is a more complete solution with the included valve and the custom 1/2″ connections with rubber gaskets.
Please contact us before ordering this kit, such that we can recommend what other parts should used.
What is the required installation height?
This depends a bit on how the drain connections are implemented in the installation. As an example (see pictures), assuming horizontal drain connection both on the top and the bottom, the overall height of the VXpipe 1700mm with this kit amounts to 192cm. Ideally, one would have another 10-20cm to allow access to the top of VXpipe by removing the cap on the top of the rotator.
