This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in December of 2018. While a simple floor drain works well in many cases, sometimes a rapid accumulation of liquid can be overwhelming. These trench drains are extremely efficient at evacuating excess water through a narrow, channel-shaped body. They’re also useful in industrial settings for containing chemical or contaminant spills, and some are designed specifically for installation in showers. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best trench drain on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 04, 2019:

Included the Ushower Floor and Neodrain Brick for those in need of a shower drain who want something that looks a little more classy than a model you’d install outside. Noted that the actual color of the NDS 400 Spee-D may differ a little from what’s shown in the pictures. Researched the Fernco StormDrain, but multiple users reported that it did not include all of the necessary accessories.
