Kohler Reinvents Bath Customization with PureFlo, a Universal Cable Drain
KOHLER, Wis. – Feb. 1, 2012 – True to its roots and commitment to creating products at the forefront of design and technology, Kohler Co. debuts the PureFlo cable drain, a product sure to be well-received by plumbers for its installation benefits and by homeowners for the customization it offers.
“Before, fitting a drain to a tub was tricky,” says Kohler spokesperson Ed Del Grande, a master plumber and contractor. “The PureFlo’s rough drain comes in two different cable lengths, each with a flexible neck that makes installation a breeze, no matter what bath wall slope I’m dealing with.” The rough drain is available in both brass and PVC to satisfy both the plumber’s preference and local plumbing codes. Kohler also offers an ABS adapter that works with both PVC rough drains.
With rough drains and trim kits sold and installed separately, decorative drain covers can be put in place with other finishing touches once the job is done. And that, Ed says, eliminates the risk of parts being lost or damaged on the job site, and gives homeowners more flexibility for last-minute design changes. Seven different trim kits make it easy for homeowners to customize their baths to complement surrounding design elements. And installing the trim kit—or upgrading to a different design—is now easier than ever. Changing trim on a drain in a remodel project once meant pulling out the tub or going into the wall, both of which are time-and money-consuming.
“With PureFlo, I can change up a bath’s look—even the actuation method—all from the outside,” Ed says. “Whether it’s a quick upgrade or a major renovation, having a PureFlo drain in place makes the process much easier for plumbers and their clients.”
- Rough Drains: 30-inch cable accommodates baths 14-21 inches deep, while a 45-inch cable works with those 21-26 inches deep.
- Trim Kits: Four styles; basic, contemporary, traditional, and Victorian; each available in a variety of finishes.
- Actuation Methods: Basic is available only as a rotary-turn; contemporary, traditional, and Victorian are available as both rotary-turn or push-button, the later favored for its ease of use for those with wrist issues or limited mobility.
