The system is VA approved

The water installations are routed vertically up the walls of the bathroom pod above the pod ceiling to the service shaft

The water installation is terminated either with 2 distribution pipes with ¾” union in the service shaft or with a rolled-up overlength on pex pipes

An additional connection point for water connection to the kitchen sink can be provided on the pod’s distribution pipe

Water installation is leak tested according to KS-manual appendix E1. KS-manual appendix E1



Internal drain installations are routed in welded PEH pipes, brand Geberit

Standard floor drains are ABS floor drains with stainless steel grates, make Unidrain.

Alternatively, a corner drain made by JAFO or Blücher.

If possible, the drain installation should be terminated in a service shaft. Drain installations from floor drains, washbasin and washing machine are joined together as far as possible into one pipe with a 50/75 mm PEH drain pipe. Drains from the toilet are dimension 110 mm PEH.

Drain pipes internal to the bathroom floor are laid with a 16‰ fall according to the DIF standard for drain installations. DIF standard for drain installations, drain installations in prefabricated elements

All materials are CE type-approved

Drain installation is leak tested according to KS-manual appendix E3. KS-manual appendix E3



Water-based underfloor heating is the normal standard solution, realised in 15 mm pex pipes

The underfloor heating is regulated with a return valve controlled by a thermostatic element. The underfloor heating is terminated in the service shaft, with the necessary excess pipe length so that the pipes can reach the apartment’s heat distribution pipe without joints

The underfloor heating installation can alternatively be supplied as a pipe system with room thermostat control

The Pex underfloor heating pipes are fixed to the top reinforcement mesh on the underside of the reinforcement mesh with a covering concrete layer of approx. 50 mm and with a distance of 200 mm between the heating loops

Electric underfloor heating can be provided if desired

The heating installation is leak tested according to KS-manual appendix E2. KS-manual appendix E2



Bathrooms are normally supplied with an extraction valve for central extraction. This is terminated with a Ø 100 mm spigot in the service shaft.

The valve is placed in the ceiling and routed to the shaft via an attached ventilation pipe. A silencer can be fitted if necessary and there is sufficient space above the bathroom ceiling. 

An electric fan can be supplied if required.



The bathroom pod is not normally supplied with door leaf and frame fitted.

Plastic screw blocks are moulded into the door hole for installation of the door frame on site. Please refer to the installation instructions for bathroom pods for this installation.



On corners where there is adjacent drywall, the wall of the bathroom pod is provided with a continuous 2 x 40 mm filler bevel, where reinforcing fabric over the wall joint can be installed and levelled.

External visible corners are provided with a steel putty edge to ensure straightness of the corners.



The bathroom pod is delivered with a plywood panel in front of the door hole. The door plate is hinged and serves as a temporary door. The door plate is closed with a padlock. The door panel is split in two so that a lower part of approx. 200 mm in height and the full width of the panel can be removed without removing the rest of the door panel. The purpose of this is so that the carcass installer can check the drop in the bathroom door opening after installation and so that the carpenter can check the floor height of the bathroom and coordinate this with his floor heights when laying wooden floors outside the bathroom.

If a door is supplied, it is equipped with a padlock system that prevents access to the bathroom during the construction period.

Bathing pods are supplied with 4 wooden blocks 150 x 150 x 150 mm attached to the underside of the pod base. These are removed immediately before installation.



The bathroom pod is equipped with 4 lifting points. These consist of a 20 mm wire strap attached to the main reinforcement of the walls. During installation, the installation contractor screws the supplied wire straps to the insert and the pod is ready to be hoisted into place in the building.

For more information, please refer to Badelement’s detailed installation instructions.



Depending on the floor height of the building, it may be necessary to make recesses for parts of the drain installation in the upper side of the concrete deck under the bathroom pod. In each individual case, the height of the concrete deck at the location of the bathroom pod must be assessed to determine whether a recess is necessary.

As a general rule, when using our standard floor drains from Jafo, a recess is not necessary if the floor construction is 180 mm and for drain channels from Unidrain or Blücher 210 mm. Unidrain or Blücher 210 mm. However, always contact us to determine the size of the recesses.

Factors such as the length of the connecting drainpipes can also have a significant influence. It is recommended to contact us on a case-by-case basis.
