    Is there a better way to adhere this ring to the grout/cement below than using the silicone caulking, that will last, look neat, and be easy to clean? (a diff 'adhesive'?)... Related: I thought the inner portion of the ring where it meets the grout could potentially collect hairs, grease...

    I am installing a new shower (pan) in my basement on a slab. The existing drain pipe in the slab is original 2" metal from 1968 (steel, cast iron??). It is rusted and a little jagged but still seemingly strong. I have every reason to believe there is a P- trap in the slab. I've scoured the...

    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. The plumber we hired is happy to place an extra...

    If you have used the WingTite drain, how did it work for you? The main selling point of this drain is that it installs from the top. I was wondering how well these drains hold up over the years. Thank you

    I am replacing a shower in a remodeled basement in a house built in 1932. The basement appears to have been originally remodeled into an apartment in the 1950s. I removed the old metal shower and concrete shower pan to discover that the floor under the shower is the original basement dirt...

    Hello! I am doing a bathroom remodel and need a 3/4" slope from the shower edge to the trench drain along the wall. I am considering making "wedges" from ripped 2 x 4s that would run from 1/4" at one end to 1" at the other end to make the slope. I would put about one ripped 2 x 4 piece...

    I'm currently remodeling my basement bathroom and there is a 2" PVC pipe from the first floor bathtub drain running across the basement bathroom ceiling to the stack. I am looking to reroute the drain pipe since it sits under the floor joists and drywall right at eye level. It looks awful. I...

    A few years back, I bought a house where the plumbing for a first floor bathroom had been roughed-in but no fixtures were installed. The room was framed but no drywall was hung (walls still open). Oddly the room was partially tiled (nice tile, no walls). Access from beneath the first floor is...

    I’m replacing a leaking fiberglass shower with a custom tiled one in my basement. The old one is all ripped out and I am down to concrete floor with a 2” copper drain pipe extending up about 1 ¼”. (IMG_5557.jpg) I can’t seem to find a suitable drain. They all seem to be too big. They all seem...

    We have a terrible sewage smell that takes over our house. This only happens when water is drained through our main floor shower. (We live in a ranch style home built in 1958.) The smell however comes from the basement bathroom. I can't tell if the smell comes from the shower drain or...

    Hello. We had a leak from our shower and it was the drain. It’s a no caulk shower drain and the park the screws in is cracked. Everything else is fine. This is a ~$10 part that I can not find anywhere. I can't find the right size with the right threads. I talked to a plumber and the only...

    Hello, I have a problem with a 2nd floor master bathroom walk in shower. The house was built in 65 and the pipes are copper. Im not 100 percent sure what a normal drain would look like, however looking at things, I get the feeling that non spec practices were used. I assume this shower was...

    I am going to put ceramic tile in a 5'x7' bathroom that currently has a vinyl floor (that we put in about 12 years ago) and I have to also replace the shower since my ex-husband didn't do such a hot job putting in the kit. I am thinking about an acrylic base with tiled walls, but I need to know...
