    I was hoping to just use a waterproof backer board for my shower. Can’t find wedi, kerdi, hydroblok, or go board anywhere. I guess I’m going to just use cement board and red guard. I thought waterproof foam board would be a lot easier for me, since I’m a small woman. Those cement boards are not...

    The lower hinge broke loose on our shower door. It looks like it might be quite an old door because I can't see any similar hinges at the usual stores where such things might be sold. Trying to remove the screws were not easy and I had to resort to drilling it out to remove the hinge. Does...

    I have one of those push/pull shower knobs. I pulled it to start the water, it flew off. The screw that holds it on to the valve broke the black plastic screw hole area. Is this an easy fix or do I need to hire a plumber to replace the entire thing? Photos attached. Thank You

    A few months ago I noticed that the shower neck was slightly loose. I figured it was better to be snug, so I tightened it by turning it about 20-30 degrees. It got me thinking about how installers get the shower neck to point straight down. Do they use different width spacers between the neck...

    We ended up having to have our basement sewer line replaced while remodeling our basement. We've decided to take this opportunity to take sad toilet and sink sitting un-walled on the side of the basement and put in a full bath with standing shower.

    I'm currently redoing my master bathroom. I purchased a Schluter shower kit to use for the shower pan. Per directions, I used an unmodified thinset to adhere their waterproof membrane to the backer board walls. I was not comfortable with how I adhered them, so after a few weeks, I pulled the...

    I'm halfway through renovating a corner shower in my basement. The bathroom was stripped down to the studs, new green-board was put up, and the corner shower base was installed into a bed of wet mortar (so I can't take it up now). I know now that green board should not be used in showers but...

    I am looking to set up a stand up shower for my clawfoot tub. Pre-packaged kits are available, but they are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. I have a fine faucet and handheld shower assembly, so all I need is a rod that encircles the whole tub (similar to the oval or D shaped setups) to hang the...
