Can I retro fit EasyDRAIN Edge to my area?

EasyDRAIN Edge can be fitted to an existing EasyDRAIN channel however, to avoid uneven surfaces, we recommended new pavers or tiling be placed to butt up to the lip of the grate.

Can I connect EasyDRAIN Edge to the Compact or Standard systems?

EasyDRAIN Edge can be connected to other EasyDRAIN systems however, this can lead to uneven flooring as the lip on the Edge creates the need for the tile/paver to be higher than the existing drainage system.

Access Pits are installed with a removable tile/paver on top to ensure easy access. Talk to your trade specialist about how to achieve this.
