Adjustable Pedestals for Outdoor Showers

Techo-Bloc

Paver Pete presents the benefits of using screwjack-style pedestals for alternative applications. In this case, the shower drain will be hidden below the pavement.

Buzon BC-series pedestals are available through your local Techo-Bloc authorized dealer. 

 

Advantages of pedestals:

  • Replaces tons of aggregates
  • Used in more applications than only roofdecks
  • Less traffic, clean up and damage in the backyard, which results in less repair costs

Buzon BC series:

  • Made of recycled polypropylene
  • Screw-jack style, adjustable for height, pattern and joint width
  • UV / salt / chemical resistant

Installation of the pedestals

STEP 1: Use the Buzon leveling system to calculate the pitch and mark in which direction the water will go.

STEP 2: Adjust slope corrector to the pitch resulting in a level finished surface.

STEP 3 (OPTIONAL): Secure couplers together if more elevation is needed.

STEP 5 (OPTIONAL): Use shims to help seat the units as they go in. They can also make up for imperfections.
