Bathroom remodeling


As long as you don't need to do any offsets it should work.

Bathroom remodeling


Hey Ron, I am going to make this the longest thread! When I install the whirlpool, should I run a 2 X 4 vertical under the lip of the tub?

I meant horizontal, got alot of things on my head. Also do I have to put some sort of mortar under the tub, since its fiberglass? Thanks

I don't remember if I asked you this before, if I don't find the drain and overflow assembly in pvc, will it be a pain to convert from the brass o/d assembly to the pvc p trap?

Bathroom remodeling


Hey Ron, I am getting to success with the lavatory and tub drain, almost done, just got to get the whirlpool in, been busy with sheetrocking. I ran into a little problem with the toilet drain. I got a 90 degree 4inc pipe and was going to add a small piece of 4inc pipe to get to my 12.5 rough out, the 90 degree pipe comes up tooo much over the subfloor, and I haven't even put the toilet flange in yet. What can I use that will be shorter? Thanks

How much? 1/4" 1/2" 1"? Is that a short turm 90

See I told you to go with 3", this would have not given you this problem.

I thought a 4inc would be better for drainage, since my kids throw tons of paper down the drain, and I do not want to be the plunger man. I say about almost 2 inches without the flange!

The toilet will plug up long before the pipe, we talking about the top of the 4" hub 2" above the sub-floor? How thick will the finish floor get?

2" over is alot, how much will it be over when you get finish floor down?

I know its alot, and I sure don't want to cut the stack that will create a disaster!!! I was going to add to the subfloor , cement board and ceramic tiles, and that won't give me the clearence. The whole entire lip of the 4inc 90 sticks out above the subfloor and I haven't even added the flange@@@@@&&&&%%%$$$

You have 2 options, here, switch to a short turn 4" street 90, then you can glue the hub on the toilet flange over the street end, that alone will get the flange lowered enough to work or switch to 3".
