Water backs up to the shower when the internal dimension (ID) of the pipe between the valve and the spout is not large enough to handle the volume of water that is running through the valve. My guess is you used pex. You should have used galvanized or copper pipe. The ID of galvanized pipe is 5/8"; copper pipe is just over a 1/2" ID. This will fix the problem. If this pipe is no longer accessible, you may be able to fix this one other way, by limiting the volume of water that is supplied to the valve. Remove the handle and the escutcheon plate. Turn screw on each side of the valve clockwise until fully closed; this will shut the water off to the valve. Now, put the handle back on and turn the faucet on full mix; water should not be running. Now turn each screw 90 degrees; water will begin to flow. Wait 20 seconds to see if water backs up to the shower. If not, turn both screws another 90 degrees and wait 20 seconds again to see if it backs up to shower. Continue this until it backs up to the shower. When it backs up, close each screw equally until it stops backing up.

I would like information on steps to remove bathtub and install pre fab shower


This is a fairly big job but can be done if you have the right tools and a little bit of time....... Depending on the existing tub material (cast iron,fiberglass, tin type ). You will want to remove faucet trim(handles,spout) first. Then the over flow plate on tub,as well as drain in the bottom (this will require a drain removal wrench or pair of needle nose pliers and screw driver, and some strong arms).After this is done remove tub unit , if the unit is a cast iron unit a good sledge hammer will work as you will need to break into halves to remove unless your trying to save tub and provided you can then get the unit out the door in one piece...... Caution, protect body and eyes in this process, flying pieces of cast iron can do some damage to body......cutting tub will take several blades and take quite a while to do......The next step depends on the location of faucet and if you are replacing the tub faucet or going to use the existing faucet.... I would recommend a new faucet because if this is going to be a shower only you may want to raise the faucets so they will be easy to operate without having to bend..Depending on the model pre-fab (two piece,three piece) unit you wish to install you may need to prep the drain to make sure it will fit your new installation. Let me explain... most tubs have the drain located at the right/left end of tub and the showers are located in the center of the unit thus leaving you to relocate the drain. If house is on slab it means a little jack hammering the concrete to provide this, if the floor is a conventional it means re-routing the drain to the center.......once all this is accomplished you are ready to install unit base,connecting drain. Next you need to get the faucet located to the right height or be able to get to the back side of the shower and remove the existing faucets and replace them after you install surround.....turn off water supply before removing faucet..... A sturdy surround will make for a less involved support system around shower area.Be sure to leave enough space between studs for faucet attachment. Sounds like a lot of work and it is but after its done you will have a great bath shower..... hope this was helpful.... sorry this only dealt with the plumbing aspects of the job......

No drain cut out in maax opera


It is very easy to cut the hole. It is also very easy to lose control of the drill and brutally gouge the tub. You need a strong drill and the correct size hole saw. Measure it carefully. You will only get 1 shot at this. Don't try to go too small thinking you can just make it bigger. That will not work as well as you think.
The hole saw needs to be a full circle of teeth with a center drill bit that sticks out further than the ring. You use a marker to put a dot on the tub where you want the drain to be centered. Then, you place the drill bit on the dot and slowly drill your pilot hole. When the ring of teeth make contact with the tub, they may want to skip and bounce. This will combine with your downward force to gouge big ugly chunks out of your tub.
I have scrapped many a tub by this exact procedure. You must control any and all bounce by firmly flexing your arms. You cannot allow any sudden upward or downward movements with the hole saw. You can give yourself a little more control by making the center drill bit as long as you can, but still firmly secured.
If all goes well, you will have the right size hole in the correct location. Sand or grind down the underside of your drain hole just a little. This will give your drain a flat surface to hug when you screw it together. A lumpy bottom may cause a leak. A thin bottom may crack during installation.
Take your time and you should do well. Good luck

Eljer garden garden tub drain


Tub overflows are not required in all states but I highly recommend drilling the hole and installing the proper waste and overflow drain I recommend the Gerber brand and also when you set the tub you need to set it in a light concrete for stability I use great stuff foam for setting tubs 2 cans spray on floor and set and level tub tub will never wobble or move

I have a large whirlpool tub in MB on 1st floor. When letting water out of tub it is coming up in a large walk-in shower. The shower is draining fine...need answer! thanks


sounds like there may be some blockage in pipes. try to run a long snake through both drains or run all fixtures in bathroom and try plunging vigorously in tub and shower while running water. if nothing still, it may be possible that your underground plumbing is back graded or incorrect fittings and plumbing installation.
