    I have an older home and can not for the life of me find any replacement porcelain handles for my tubs. They are cross handle and no identification that I can make out.

    I have a leaky shower wand/hose, and I'm trying to figure out which I part I need to replace. Here's a video of the issue: Is it a failed o ring or hose? To me it looks like water is leaking out segments of the hose near the wand. Is it best to just replace the whole unit (wand + hose). Are...
  3. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    We removed the tub surround monstrosity that came with this house and are remodeling with a simple shower install. We are very hands-on DIYers but have never gutted a bathroom before & are very curious about these -- um, the most polite term I can think is 'weird' -- pipes. This house is 20...

    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

    My contractor used the schluter system to waterproof the shower. It is now leaking by the shower bench. The leak is coming through the ceiling downstairs. I'm assuming he did not install the schluter/ ditra heat properly. Can anyone point out issues in attached photo? He says he is willing to...
  6. Building & Construction
    I've got an issue I'm trying to get around. As I'm getting ready to tile I realize that with the required thickness and slope that a mortar bed require I'm going to have to either: 1 - create a boarder and leave the main floor lowered/recessed 2 - raise the rest of the floor just shy of 2"...

    Hi, I'm based in the UK and live in a 2 bedroom maisonnette that was built in the 1920s. I have a bathroom which has a large cupboard which I'd love to convert it into a walk-shower, however every time it rains, there's a leak. (see images attached). Where do I begin? Can I ask my neighbour...
  8. Windows and Doors
    Ten years ago, a local glass & mirror vendor installed a "frameless"shower enclosure in my new master bath. Actually, the only part that's frameless is the door, the rest is fully framed. The shower has two tile walls and two glass. The hinge is next to the corner where the glass walls meet...

    We are remodeling our shower, and have questions about waterproofing: 1. I have seen videos where people are putting the paintable waterproof membrane over their entire finished cement pan, even though there is a PVC liner under the pan. I was planning on doing this as well until I read online...

    Hi, I'm pooring a small basement slab soon here in Montreal QC, around 470sqft. The place will have a bathroom with a no-curb shower 3x5ft. I will also install pex tubing with appropriate rigid board insulation for radiant heat (I already have the boiler setup for the ground floor). My question...

    I'm looking to add a shower to my basement bathroom. In the picture below you'll see the existing toilet flange on the right side. On the other side of the wall in the back left corner is the main stack coming from the upstairs bathroom. From what I've deduced, that stack runs where I drew the...

    Hi, we need an acrylic shower stall for our plumbing work starting in May. We are now being told there is a 12-16 week lead time to order one!! We have identified one unit that is available before May and might work, but the plumbing would have to be on the same side as the seat. Is this an...

    We recently bought a 1960's house and have started working on renovating the basement bathroom. The bathroom is on concrete slab and the drain lines are made out of cast iron (photos below). We are replacing the shower and will be adding in a tiled floor before reinstalling the toilet. Here's...

    I’m finalizing all of my dimensions for my new walk in shower measurements and have run into a slight problem. I’m planning to end the Schluter shower pan at 33 inches on the measuring tape, and have the shower curb extend out to about 39 inches. I will install the tile threshold along the wall...

    Can anyone identify this shower cartridge? Looked at all the parts and the cartridge itself. Don't see any sort of name, letter, or number anywhere.
  16. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    Hi I just moved into a not so new apartment. I suppose it got its last renovation like 30 years ago. Anyway, as it's a rented place, and the rent is low I don't really mind. What I don't like is my shower. The shower is actually a sitting shower with a tub. I don't want to sit in a tub just to...

    We are remodeling and hired a plumber to install the pan and a separate tiler to tile the walls. When we went to put the shower door on we found out the pan isn't level. One suggestion from a contractor was to shim and caulk the 3/4" gap that would be needed to set the door up straight...

    I've opened up my Grohe shower controls (Grohmix 34436000) for the first time to attempt to clean the thermo cartridge, and I can't seem to figure out what to do next. I want to close the stop valves to shut off the water. In the attached picture, there are 4 screws, and I suspect screws "A" and...

    Any issues with the attached diagram? Code is a toilet must be vented within 6’ (3” drain). Note the 2” wet drain from the sink. Do I need to add another vent? If so, is that an appropriate way to do so?

    Hello all. I could use some advice on a weird tile transition. I am about to tile a shower wall as part of building out a master suite in my attic, and my cement board is about 1/2" higher than the drywall next to it due to having to shim out the cement board to accommodate the shower pan lip...
