The wedi Fundo Riolito Discreto, the world’s first vertical drain cover system panel that can be built into double walls or wedi made seats, steps, shelving or foot rests and can be installed over fitting wedi Riolito neo channel drain systems. The brand-new wedi Fundo Riolito Discreto has a 100 % waterproof core, integrated design and reversible cover (finished in brushed stainless steel, or it can be reversed and tiled over) and offer the ability to clean with ease, making it the ultimate shower wall drain solution.
Step 1Apply wedi Joint Sealant to the underside of the plastic flange which will rest on the Riolito surface.
Note: When the Riolito product is not being used, this flange should be cut away as it does not conform with slope designs other than Riolito.
Step 2When using Riolito neo offset bases, insert the grey spacers into the channel. When Fundo Primo or Fundo OneStep products with offset drains are used, spacers are not required.
Step 3Prepare your wedi shower floor unit as shown here where a Fundo Riolito is used. With slight modifications to the Discreto unit, you can use it with all Fundo models featuring an offset drain.
Step 4Place the Fundo Discreto unit over the channel / drain unit. Joint sealant will adhere the unit to the base.
Step 5Make sure the Fundo Discreto is installed with a tight angle / perpendicular to the shower base surface.
Step 6When Riolito neo is used, screws are used in addition to the joint sealant when securing the flange to the base.
Step 7Remove any excess joint sealant from the inside areas of the Discreto with a utility knife when it has dried to clean up the area.
Step 8Use wedi Joint Sealant if you choose to install the optional stainless steel plate (which works with the use of Discreto’s finished stainless steel drain cover).
Step 9Apply some temporary weight against the metal plate so the sealant can set.
Step 10aThe unit is now installed and a double wall or seat / shelf unit can be installed around it, integrating the unit. The installation instructions show in detail how to insert and adjust the drain cover which can be reversed from finished surface to tileable surface. Adjustments can accommodate thickness of floor and wall tiles before fixing its position.
