Why would you need the Wondercap?
The Wondercap caps off the shower / floor waste. Simple as that. By capping off the shower or floor waste, during the demolition/construction of the bathroom renovation, the Wondercap prevents construction debris and other rubbish going down your shower and floor drain. It should be obvious why rubbish down your drain isn’t a good thing but just in case its not; waste materials down shower and floor drains get caught in bends of waste pipes. There the rubbish stays, collecting hair, soap and other scum that goes down the drain naturally causing bad smells, mold and worst of all a blocked drain(!) reducing water flow.
The Wondercap puddle flange installation aids in waterproofing the wet area (which, according to Australian regulations is the entire bathroom floor and 1800mm up the shower walls) providing a datum to screed and waterproof to. Just simply continue the waterproofing membrane up to the lip of the puddle flange.
The Wondercap base adjusts to various screed heights allowing whichever part of the bathroom installation to adjust as they see fit. Sometimes more screed height is needed, sometimes there is only a few millimeters to work with; the Wondercap floor drainage system handles any of these situations.
Once the shower drain is installed, there has to be someplace for the water and excess moisture to go and often its not as simple as through the shower grate and down the drain. Patented weep holes are comprised in the base which allows moisture to drain from the bedding preventing a water-logged bathroom, mold build up and water damage.
