    Hello all - new here. We hired a contractor to do this but had a major communication breakdown. He will lose his mind if I ask him to fix this as there have been many problems on the job… I’m really just trying to get a straight answer on whether we can fix ourselves. I asked for no tile on...

    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.

    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...

    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?

    In my tub/shower, between the tub and the surround there is what to me looks like trim. In every surround I have seen or can find online they just chaulk between the tub and surround. Does anyone know what this is or what purpose it serves. It is impossible to keep clean and is a headache. Could...

    We are looking to make this tub function as a shower without having to tear up the tile. The problem seems to be that the faucet is deck mounted as opposed to wall mounted. We have found products that convert a wall mounted faucet to a shower, but not for a deck mounted faucet. Anyone know of...

    Hello Everybody, My first post here on DIY Chatroom! Per my thread title, I have 3 identical single handle, pull out shower faucets in a house built in 1994 that I would like to replace.

    Hi folks, I have a small bathroom and biggest pain in the rear is that the tub is very shallow and gets cold very fast if you want to use it as a soaking tub. Size is a challenge. I measured 58-59 inches tub length. I would really welcome 2 solutions or 3 if there is anything else I am not...

    When installing my new shower/tub, the tub had to be raised due to the level of the sewage line and position of the drain. A professional plumber came in and raised the tub with concrete blocks and was able to set our drain successfully. This led an ugly inch or so of block that had to be...

    I have a problem with my tub overflow. The stainless steel cover plate screws that held the overflow cover plate to the bronze overflow pipe have corroded away. With virtually no shank to extract them with locking pliers, it appears galvanic corrosion has frozen the threads. Replacing the...

    I bought from a Pulte home. I replaced the tub but by mistake lost the tub overflow stuff. The previous overflow and plumbing fit the new tub perfectly. We replaced the tub and tiled everything. When I went to home depot they said I need to have two holes. AHHHHH!!!! now I can not find a...

    I just purchased a 2 family home, and the previous owner installed a tub that creaks when you're showering. Apparently this is caused by not having the proper (or any) support underneath it, and will slowly lead to cracks and eventual failure. I have access to the tub from the basement through...

    I am trying to find out how to unclog my hot water line feeding my upstairs shower. I had not used the shower in nearly 2 years then went to use it as my second shower is out of commission due to Sheetrock work being done. (No pipes affected) When water pressure wasn't what it used to be and the...

    I have been remodeling my 1978 4,000 sq ft. home for about 5 years now. One of the last rooms is the master bathroom. The bathroom has a typical 1970's sunken tub (i think its cast iron) that is against the outside wall of a brick home with a full single pane window behind it. On the other...
