    Hi again,

    I have a plumber coming this evening.

    The only reason I was trying to drain it was to see if there was sediment in the tank that may have caused the tank to not produce hot water.

    Hi again,

    When I turn on the hot water tap, the water runs through just fine - except its not hot! Is there something inside that tells it when to stop filling up with water that may be wonky?

    thanks for the response,

    the unit is five years old. It does not rock. The drain is on the lower side of the unit and so I can see that it is running freely.
    Is there another drain on the...

    Wiggle Room

    David,

    Yes I would consider using the wiggle room if I thought I could do a good tile job and not compromise the slope. I am not sure that Schluter would support cutting the plate. The drain...

    Wiggle Room?

    No, there is no wiggle room because the drain lip goes almost to the edge of the foam tray and built into the slope. (I thought of cutting off some of the foam but there would be a steep slope to...

    Three answers

    Hi David,

    Yes the shower is in a corner.
    Yes the joists are 15 feet long.
    From the wall to the centre of the drain is 10" (exactly the same as a tub).



    I guess this wasn't very clear. ...

    There is a major wall running through the main floor of the house at 15 feet. I am sure that this is the joist that we are looking at upstairs. This bathroom is directly over the laundry room on...

    YES, I need to cut the joist a whole lot because the drain is located right above it.

    Earlier posts suggested that I should cut the joist but more recent posts have me worried about the porcelain...

    Without ripping up the entire floor, I could not tell you how long the joists are. I will also post on John Bridge site and see if there are more ideas out there for reinforcing the joist.

    Lee,

    Thanks for the suggestion. The Schluter shower drain is 2" and the old (existing) tub pipes are 1.5", so I must make the conversion somewhere in there. Mark has suggested that I swap out...
