The hobless shower has been designed to fit in the most difficult places where a traditional shower enclosure cannot fit. It is basically an electric shower that is installed with special channels running under the walls, and around the floor. Water is sent from the showerhead through these channels to the drain. The advantage of this is that there is no need for a huge pipe or the pipes underneath the wall will not be damaged. You can also opt for rain showerheads, and this will also save space as the water will not have to travel far to get to the drain!
The way it works is simple. As water is being released from the shower, it is pushed through the channels, which then have small holes in them. Water then makes its way into a drainage pipe. As the water makes it way down the drain, gravity takes over and the water is forced down by the force of the water against the force of gravity. As the water comes to a stop, this creates a vacuum, and the water then falls down the drain.
There are two types of hobbled shower enclosures that you can choose for your home. One is the fixed hobs, which stay in place wherever you want them to. The second type is known as the flexible hobs and will bend around the corner of your shower stall, or can be adjusted to allow you to adjust the hobs to allow water to flow through at different times. Most people prefer to buy a fixed hob, as they are the easiest to install, and are less likely to become damaged. However, if you choose a flexible shower, make sure it is properly waterproofed, as it is possible for the water to seep through if it is not.
