    I've purchased an older house to fix up and rent, and repairs have been going really well so far. Everything was in working order, and I am simply upgrading certain aspects to make it better. However, overnight, the water pressure to the bath has slowed to a trickle. Pressure is great everywhere...

    Looking at my bathtub, I think it needs resurfacing. Water gets blocked because of which there are lot of stains. Is there a way I can do it by myself? Or I should seek for expert's help?

    Good evening, good people. On here trying to find a resolution for a very disturbing and consistent issue I'm encountering with my shower door. Every time I go and take a shower, the water from the shower leaks through the bottom of the door and spills onto the floor. There is a plastic barrier...

    I have looked at many tubs and buyer reviews online, and I still feel lost. What I'm hoping for is advice from plumbers or DIYers on what to purchase and what to avoid. For example, I just read that a drop-in is not a good choice when there will be a shower too, so that was helpful, because I...
  5. Building & Construction
    My bath is in an old apt complex converted to condos. The exterior wall was actually strips of metal covered with metal lath and plaster. The last contractor tried to go over the strips of metal with metal studs. At first I thought it was pretty solid. But after close inspection it's not that...

I would like to replace this setup with a new showerhead, pressure balance valve with bath/shower diverter, and tub spout. My question is what plumbing rough-in modifications are required (if...

    Hi, I have a shower that needs a Cartridge replacement. The shower was installed by the previous owner and therefore I have no information on the model type and there seems to be no other indicator on the shower itself that could guide me. I have attached pictures of both the shower and...

    We are redoing a shower in the guestbath. I've gotten several estimates. Some companies will demo the shower down to the subfloor then build the bottom from there on while others have proposed to just remove the tiles and put in new tiles. The shower in question is probably 20 years old. Which...
  9. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    Need to re-caulk top edge of shower/bathtub, but the caulking along the side edges seems fine. Can I just redo the top edge, or do I need to remove and redo all the caulking all the way around, even if it seems fine, and redo everything?

    Can I run the drain after the P-trap, the length of the 5' tub, to the opposite wall before I Tee down and vent up?

    My husband is determined to place glue down cork tile in our 27 square foot bathroom. I like the idea of the floor being warm but that is about it. He plans to seal it and follow all the recommended instructions, but I think it is a horrible idea anyway. The shower is one of those crummy spec...

    Good afternoon, I am new to this blog as well as remodeling. I need to replace my old tile/grout around tub/shower and have tried to find the differences between fiberglass, acrylic and other materials offered. I don't know the first thing about any of them and am not making much progress...
