    I went through hell finding compatible parts for my shower trim so I figured I’d stop here first I have 0 confidence finding an appropriate replacement trim kit for this faucet in brushed nickel. I’m not even sure if the manufacturer, so any help would be appreciated

    There is plumbing roughed in for a 2nd bathroom. There is room to put a tub in, but the drain is 17" from the studs on the short wall (where the 30" tub width would go) and 15" from the studs on the long wall (where the 60" side would go). This is frustrating because aren't most tub drains about...

    Last month I've taken on the task of refurbishing an old steel tub. The drain and overflow valve had completely rusted out leaving large holes. I've created new ones with Bondo and everything seems to be going well with the plumbing, but I'm running into an issue with the fitting the actual...

    I'm interested in installing a clawfoot tub as a drop in - with normal use being the shower and an occasional soak in the tub. The challenge is that the tub will create a lip above the deck which will need to be sloped and drained or some other drain option. My intention is to install it with...

    I have an clawfoot tub faucet set which works great, except the shower diverter needs replacement now. The washer is shot I think. A lot of water is going into the tub instead of through the shower. The hardware store guy said to screw off the top of the diveter to remove and then install...

    Yes, I did it. :biggrin2: Set the tub and it is about 1/4 inch off on the short side opposite the faucet. Should have raised it a little more there, but the mortar was already drying, etc. :wink2: It is level front to back but side to side is low by about 1/4 inch. (So I'm referring to the side...

    I have a second floor full bathroom. The bathtub is situated such that the plumbing is coming out of the outside wall. I need to make this bathtub into a shower and tub combo. However, a plumber told me "You don't want to do that." He would not elaborate as to why I do not want to do this...

    Ok, my question is this. My husband just got done ripping out our shower (because it was gross and leaking) we were planning on installing cement backer board and then some sort of membrane. When we ripped off the wall with the faucet and shower head though we found that all of the studs have...

    I am using a contractor to renovate my bathroom (my house was built in 1937). He installed cement board in the tub/shower area for the walls and didn't use a vapor barrier. He said it isn't necessary and only agreed to use Redgard on the cement board after I insisted. He thinks it is overkill...

    I've seen it both ways 1. mark the center vertical and horizontal and start tile from the mid point. 2. start at the bottom just above the tub so that there are not cuts next to the tub. Seems like it wouldn't make a difference. I like the idea of fewer cuts. What is the "right" way?

    Hi DIYers, I just installed a Moen Banbury Tub/Shower Model#82910SRN. When using the shower, the diverter tub spout in the up position, I noticed water dripping from the tub faucet. I called Moen and person I spoke to said this is normal. I was assuming that the tub faucet would be...
