    Hope this doesn't sound like a stupid question but, I have bought a couple of lengths of (resin) linear drain plus 2 end caps. However, there is no hole for any water to drain out. Presumeably I need to drill out a hole. Question is, how do I fix the pipe to the drain? My current thinking is to simply cement it in???

    Hope you can help!

    Do you mean surface drain, with a grid cover - approx 1 m lengths?

    If so, if there is no knock out on the base, you may need a specific end unit with the hole connector.

    You need a proper connector peice to prevent water just leaking out

    Thanks Woody, thats right. 1mtr lengths of surface drain. I'll get back to the builders merchants and see if they sell a connector piece.

    Cheers.
