Moen Model CA87888 4-hole 2 handle and sprayer kitchen faucet. I just installed it and it only works with the sprayer. When I turn on the faucet (hot or cold), I am only getting a very small trickle. ...


Pull the screen off the faucett, from the new install you probably clogged the screen. If you get good flow without the screen, clean your screen out and re-install. You will need to twist off the piece and the end of the faucett to get at screen. Pay attention to how it comes out so you can put it back in the same way.

There is a spot almost in the middle of the tub that is softer than the area around it. I am very concerned that there is water damage that we are unaware of. Are soft spots common?


With some manufactures yes. If you can get to the area from under the tub drill some small holes through the flooring and use a stop collar on the drill bit so you don't drill into the tub the put some expanding foam in the holes so it fills the area between the tub bottom and the floor to give the tub bottom some support.

The tub should have been set in cement mortar to prevent this from happening but that

We are concernened about screwing the tub into the floor for stability. We have to go through tile and into wood. There are no instructions included for this. Included were 5/16 lag bolt and feet but we do...


The main reason to screw the feet to the floor is to keep the tub from moving which could cause the pipes to leak (either the supply or the drain) Authentic old clawfoot cast iron tubs were usually bolted to the floor because they were so heavy that it took a significant effort to move them, especially on a wood floor. If your tub is light enough that you could move it without a pretty significant push, then you had best bolt it to the floor in at least two places. Drilling holes through tile can be intimidating, but it's not as hard as you might think using an inexpensive masonry drill bit and a carbide tipped scratch awl. I will leave it to you to figure out how to assemble the claw feet to the tub, but here are a couple of important tips for drilling the holes through tile: Mark the hole locations with a felt-tip marker. Then use the carbide tipped scratch awl to gouge a starter divot in the tile. This divot can be pretty small, but it's essential for being able to drill a hole in tile in the right place. Use a variable-speed drill at fairly low speed to drill the hole - don't use a hammer-drill. Also keep a puddle of water where you are drilling to prevent the tile from heating up in one spot and causing the tile to crack. Once you get the hole through to the wood below, switch to a regular drill bit of a smaller size. Good luck, Al K

Faucet placement on Jacuzzi 6036


If there is room most definitely you can place the faucets on the tub itself. You can mount them on the left rear. However be very careful drilling the holes and make sure you have it aligned correctly before drilling. Check underneath to make sure there is enough room for clearance and hook up. Here is what it will look like. a1da3ad.png

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

Whirlpool tub not cutting off.


First I would remove the switch hose from the pump. Pinch the end of the hose over and hold it in place with a piece of tape. Depress the button and hold. If the button has little to no resistance then there is a hole in the air line which is causing enough air to leak that there is not enough force to activate the switch. If that is not the problem then just consider leaving the switch in the hole on the tub surface but adding a regular wall swich to the wall near the tub. This move the switch action from the tub to the wall. This a really cheap solution compared to getting a new switch mechanism which is what is broken for about $200.
