Arcylic shower base installed backwards


If it were mine... I'd kick myself several times (yeah, I've done stuff like that), then bring in a 4" angle grinder with a cutoff wheel. That would cut the flange MUCH faster - and generate far fewer sparks - than a belt sander. Work really carefully, though, and maintain really close control so the angle grinder absolutely stays level while you work. In fact, this would be a good spot to make up a special little jig to keep the angle grinder level and supported at one uniform height all the way across the door.

Bathroom sink smells strongly like sewer when water runs fast.


Suppose you plugged the drain of the sink and filled the basin with water, then removed the plug. I must think that only after the basin empties you would get the sewer smell, and the smell would persist until you slowly ran some more water. If you try this, and this is the result, then the problem is that the sewer vent (that is supposed to prevent the water in the trap under the sink from being sucked down the drain) is not working right. If this is a new problem then you may be able to clear what is probably a blocked vent pipe. If this bathroom has always had this problem, then you have a poorly designed or executed vent pipe setup that you can only fix it with some surgery to your plumbing. However, to clean the vent you can try pouring a good bit of drain cleaner down the vent pipe on the roof, followed by water. But because there may be several vent pipes sharing the same vent stack out the roof, the drain cleaner may not get to your blockage and may simply go down a different path. Good luck.

You can disolve plaster of paris with an acid.
I would try something weak to begin with like vinegar.
Pour some in the pipe and let it sit.
I'd then use a drill driven pipe snake to try to break it up

Good luck

I have crack in my shower floor concrete, would like to fix it before laying tiles and hope it won't be visible after i am done with tiles. I had tiles before wich I am removing now and will instal new...


There is a tile backer, kinda of like fiberglass mesh, I have also seen a waffle looking plastic, that will go down over the crack in the floor and will not effect the tile one bit. You just tile over everything, no mastic, no set under this stuff, no fasteners, just tile over it like a normal floor, and the best part is, no crack! Hope this helps.

Overflow outside bathroom dripping how do Ifix it?


Just make sure that the over flow is tight with gasket in place. And all fitting's tight behind wall goin gto tub overflow. If it is check out out next step

1-This is a common issue that comes up. Make sure that the shower valve plate is sealed and tight to tub wall. Reason why I ask that is when you take a shower water will find a way out, down the plate or if tile at the point of where it meet's tub. And will look totally like it's the overflow every time.

assuming it's not someone splashing, check that the waste outlet is not rotating & is tight
check the overflow outlet as above
remove bath side panel and check waste trap & waste pipe from it. check that all joints are firmly together - push joints, twist and push in - knurled nut joints tighten, these joints have a washer which may be cracked or not properly in place - two washers where it joins to a pipe
if it's this area then there will be water drips on the lowest parts
make sure all joints are clean before reassemble - petrolium jelly helps to lubricate the joints to refit
