    Installing tile edge trim first

    Can I install tile edge trim by embedding it in thinset, and letting it dry? And then install the shower wall tile at a later date? Or, should tile edge trim be installed at the same time as the wall tile?

    Replacing tub with standing shower

    Hello, I am looking to replace my tub with a standing shower. I have a couple of questions. Can I replace the 30" wide tub with a 32" wide shower pan, or will this cause issues with the drain lining up? How complicated might the drain be to move? Also, is there a problem with having the drain...

    Sizing PEX for Shower

    My apologies in advance if this has been asked and answered in another forum or thread. I am in the middle of a bathtub to shower conversion; as part of this remodel, we had to pull up the subfloor (rotted) and re-locate water lines because they came up through the subfloor where the shower pan...

    Wye not cut it in here?

    I am installing a new linear shower drain. What I hope to do is install the new drain upstream of the 1.5” dry vent, however there is already one 2” vented drain that discharges just above the vent (originates at my washing machine). Reading code 909.2, it appears that I should not install the...

    Shower Valve knocks and turns off water to a dribble HL - 40

    I have a glacier bay HL-40 shower valve that started acting up. (i assumed it was the valve) When I turn it from cold to hot it starts off fine and then at a certain point *clunk* it makes a clunk noise cutting off the flow of water and dribbling water out. I replaced the valve. Same issue...

    Shower Enclosure Size Requirement

    Greetings. We’re looking to install a glass shower enclosure in a corner in a guest bath in a California. The existing space we have to work with is ‘very’ tight in all directions (see attached plan). When I Google the minimum allowed size, most of the home improvement websites cite 30” x 30”...

    1/2” brass close nipple too long

    Hey! I’ve found similar threads but none that exactly match what I’m looking for. I need to attach a shower supply elbow to a female threaded fitting, but I didn’t leave enough room for the nipple. The smallest 1/2” npt brass close nipple I can find is 1-1/8” long. I need to be closer to 3/4”...

    Help with Symmons tub/shower faucet

    Hi! I'm trying to fix a leaky tub spout but I'm having a problem removing the spindle. I'm learning as I go and have watched many videos on Symmons faucet repair. I don't know the name of the 'nut' that you need to remove because everyone calls it something different, but, it was on really...

    Identify this Delta shower valve

    I was wondering, could you identify this Delta shower valve? I am at my grandparents house. There are two of these valves paired with the Delta pull-down diverter spouts and Delta arms, one with a 5.5 inch Moen Engage with Magnetix showerhead and the other with a Moen Adler showerhead.

    Basement shower drain questions

    Hello all, I am putting a bathroom in my basement. Everything was plumbed in when I bought my house except for the shower drain. So it has been "my pleasure" to tear up the concrete to put in the drain. The main 3" drain wasn't exactly where I thought it was going to be, so it is going to...

    Single handle Moen (shower only) has slow leak from pipe out of wall

    I am using very technical terms here but have pictures to better explain it. Our Moen shower fixture is leaking. I took off the shower head to see if it leaks directly from the wall and it does: Its a slow but very steady drip and over the past couple of weeks has been increasing in speed...

    Moen tub spout impedes flow

    I purchased a Moen kit to replace everything in my shower. The previous parts were old and corroded causing the tub spout to leak significantly. Now that I have installed the kit (though not the handle yet) the tub spout is not exactly perfect. While it no longer leaks during a shower, the...

    Danfoss T-11 Trim kit

    Well, I found myself if an unwanted position. I was doing some work to my shower and removed the handle and trim kit. I threw it away thinking I would get something newer and just update the look. Wrong. I can't find anything to use with this valve. Does anyone know where I can find a compatible...

    Shower arm too short

    My plumber installed the rough in for my shower head arm too far back in the wall and the shower arm only sticks out of the wall 3 1/2". I would like to increase that length. The rest of the trim is brushed nickel from American Standard and they don't make a longer shower arm in that style...

    Moving Drains Under Slab

    Hi, I'm remodeling an old bathroom built in the late 70s and am swapping out the cast iron tub for a new, larger walk-in shower. I am moving the shower drain from the tub location to be centered on the shower floor. I also need to move the toilet over to make room for the new shower. I just got...
