This is awful!!! One of the six unions Cello brand is stripped, I am not confident the other five will not leak. I now have to do a leak test BEFORE I do the flood test. Don't buy cheap Cello brand made in China.

I just put in a new wall within the existing. Does this mean it wasn't in the original wall?

Anytime you lower the ceiling below the single/double top plate, you need additional fire-blocking in connecting walls to stop fire from getting above the new ceiling, unless the lid is drywalled. Read a few pages in that link. Also, pp. 5, here: http://www.codecheck.com/cc/ccimages...CB3_sample.pdf

Ok, got it thanks! Will use the unfaced insulation. Will help with the heat loss in the water lines leading to body sprays and shower head incidentally.

Don't forget to put a little slope under the ceiling! You want the condensation to be able to slide off it instead of dripping.

I have as much slope as can be done the rain panel has to be level.

Wow, its been so long since I have made a post that I am on page 2. Putting in cement board is taking a lot longer than anticipated. I do have 4 body sprays shower head, two speakers, and the control to all be roughed in.
