    And, if you want to get a tile off Ditra without pulling the membrane off, it's much easier with a different tool.

    You're missing my point as well...I never claim to be a pro at this, but I can...

    SOme fill valves have inlet filter screens. The vibrations could have dislodged some crud, and all you need to do is clean those filters. If they do not stop, and keep running, some of it may have...

    You missed the point that after being shown, I did it myself. This is the advantage of a class...watch, try, learn. It can be done, and isn't all that hard. It is easy to fail. Some treat that as...

    A bigger tank lists for a higher annual energy use partly because it is expected to source more hot water! Especially on electric tanks without a flue up the middle and uninsulated bottoms (for the...

    The best way to approach this is to make up a mock-up board of the finished wall with tile attached and show them where you want things to be. But, if you then decide to change tile or change...

    When you've seen it done, it no longer qualifies as impossible. That you have not, does not make it impossible. Breaking the suction bond between the tile and the membrane without compromising...

    Insulation only slows the transfer of heat...it cannot stop it, so water sitting in a hot attic will get to water pipes, and if they were heated, will leak out if that attic is cold. Slowing it...

    Take a close look at the O-ring on the adapter...if it's in good shape, fine, but if not, you might want to replace that O-ring. Put a little silicon plumber's grease on it, and it will be less...

    IMHO, none of those. The foam tray is part of a system, and not using it as designed will get you no warranty from anyone. TO obtain the desired compressive strength, the Kerdi fabric provides a...

    What was done nearly 100-years ago was built to much older codes, if codes even existed in your area or were enforced. FWIW, any run needs a minimum slope, or it will have problems. All fixtures...

    OFten, a picture of the actual install with the handles can help. But, while sometimes you get lucky, parts for 50-year old stuff just is no longer available, and sometimes, the manufacturer is long...

    And, where in any of Schluter's documentation does it say you can or should do this?

    It is possible to remove a freshly installed tile from Ditra without tearing or dislodging the membrane. Once...

    I'll agree a very large format tile would be very difficult to remove from fresh Ditra...but, for something like a 12x12 or smaller, it is entirely possible with a little technique (I've not tried it...

    There are strap-on aquastats already designed to just snap in place. Unless your WH is set higher than normally suggested, if you measure at the tail end of the loop, it may never get to your...

    That does not need to be the case, but is for most of the prepackaged units. The RedyTemp is a self-contained unit that is designed (at least one model) to where it can be installed under the...

    Instead of just running it in fixed cycles, you could add an aquastat to the system, and then, only turn it on when the temp had dropped enough to be an issue.

    In reality, it probably does not...

    Thinset does not bond to the top surface of Ditra, so there's no such thing as a bond breaker there.
