Hello pamandb,
You may not have continuity thru a heating element but you should have some low resistance. If you've got an open in the el;ement itself, then you may have to remove the time to get at it to repair or replace. I have use signal tracers ( generate a sgnal in a wire and can be tracked with a receiver wand ) to track wiring and they cost about $50 - $70 in stores like home depot.. but regardless of where the break is, in order to repair it, you wil have to gain access to it which means removing tile.. Good luck
Regards,
Rick

What tiles are used for living areas?


That totally depends upon your personal tastes, and whether your subfloor is strong enough to handle the movement. The larger the tile, the more solid your subfloor needs to be. Moreover, NEVER lay ceramic or stone over tongue and groove hardwood floors .. far too much flex .. and don't buy into the "well .. we lay fiber cement board .. " Fiber cement underlayment does NOT add to stability or structural integrity.

So, what type of tile do you want? Then, it's beefing up your subfloor .. to accommodate. Add underlayment, thinset and set .. grout the floor and you should be good to go.

Tile Installation:- 1st- Sand Mastec used for joints, and screw holes. 2nd- Sweep roome very good and vacuum very well. 3rd- Measure each wall to find the Center Point of the room.(I prefer nailing a board down across one side of the line to keep tiles straight, and butt tiles to the board, and put spacers in between tiles). I use a 1/4" trowel to butter tiles before laying. With using Spacers, buttering tiles, laying tiles.( I prefer using a 2 x 4 and tap tiles across with a rubber Mallet to keep all tiles same heigth). Let One side tiles laid for 24 hours. 4th- Then do the same thing with other side of line.

Finishing Project: Once all the tiles are set, and all spacers removed. Mix up color of Choice unsanded Grout, and follow Manufacturers mixture Specs. Use grout Float and fill Spacing between Tiles. Let dry for 15 minutes. Use bucket of Clean water and Big sponge rinsing frequently removing all Grout from Tiles. Let dry for 30 minutes, and clean tiles again with Clean Water. Let set overnight. Next day, take Clean towel and rub haze off the tiles. Lastly, Seal Tile and grout.

Enjoy your project, and the Satisfaction of doing it yourself. Hope i was some help!!

How do I break up old bath room tiles


The common method is to use a small electric demolition hammer, like this

http://toolguyd.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Bosch-DH507-Demolition-Hammer-Tile-Removal.jpg

They can be easily hired if you are in a city. You can get various points for it, from spear to wide chisel.

If laying more tiles after, keep the undersurface as level as you can. Wear ear and eye protection. If your hands start to tingle while using the hammer, take a break.

There is a machine the pros use too, a power scraper

My house has carpet, does that affect the type of Pilates mat I should buy?


Carpet is thicker and softer than ceramic or tiled floors. If you know that you will only be using your Pilates mat at home, you don't need to buy one that's as thick as you would if you will be using it on a harder surface. Ultimately it's all about personal comfort and finding which mat feels right for you.

How to heat gun


When you remove old carpet from a room, you will most likely be left with remnants of glued-down backing on the floor. Getting the tile back to it's original smooth appearance can be a tedious task. You will need to make sure that you have a lot of patience and a lot of elbow grease. Start removing the glue by scraping the tile with a heavy-duty wallpaper scraper or a long-handled scraper. Do a quick sweep of the floor. Plug in your heat gun. Once it is heated up, you will want to place it at a forty-five degree angle to the floor and direct the heat on the remaining carpet backing. The carpet backing will loosen considerably as the glue begins to dissolve. The carpet backing will loosen considerably as the glue begins to dissolve. Use the wallpaper scraper to remove the loosened backing. Work in small sections. Once you have removed the carpet backing from the tile, wash the area with warm water and soap to ensure all of the glue and backing are removed. Continue until the entire tile floor is free of carpet backing.
