I have a Saltillo tile balcony and the tiles are popping. There are no expansion joints, could that be the cause?


who ever installed it probably didn't use a tile underlay like wonderboard or hardibacker. Also for areas like that you have to get the good thinset mortar like FLEXbond and the other thing too is Saltillo is not very user friendly when it comes to installing if you're not fast because its so porous i literally sucks the moisture from the mortar and there for doesnt bond to ur surface. If the thinset is thick and dry it aint gonna work. ALSO WITH SALTILLO YOU MUST HAVE 100% COVERAGE WITH THE THINSET.. Hollow tiles or no thinset under corners and what not just going to pop up. I butter the floor AND the back side of the tile when doing that type of tile. It's not very flat so there for you must have alot of thinset mortar under each and every tile. good luck. hope this helped. I been doing custom tile for 25 years so i got ya on this. Who ever was the installer lacked some knowledge on Saltillo. Tear it up and get something nicer.

I am replacing my sink, medicine cabinet and adding a small cabinet below the sink. I need to know how to remove the old and install the new.


The task you are embarking on is a great DYI project. But, be forewarned, it can get tricky. First, make sure the new sink will fit in the space of the old sink. If not do you have enough space for the new sink to fit securely against the wall? Next, remove the cabinet. There should be about four screws. You may also have to use a razor to cut calking from around the outside of the cabinet. Sometimes it's used to fill-in gaps between the tile and cabinet. Remove the cabinet. If the cabinet is setting in the wall, make sure you check and see where the support beams are located. If you are not putting in another wall cabinet, then you will have to know what kind of wall you have. Sheet rock, no problem. Plaster requires a bit more work. Measure the hole, and then you will need chicken wire, lime, plaster, paint, and matching tile. Fasten the wire to beams in the wall. The wire will hold the plaster in place. Let dry, sand smooth then paint. If you have sheet rock walls measure the hole cut the sheet rock to fit. Fasten it to the beams, use plaster or Spackle to cover the holes from the screws. You will need sheet rock tape to hide the space between the existing wall and the sheet rock patch. Smooth on cover the tape with Spackle, smooth by sanding.


To remove the sink: first, turn off the main water supply. Get a pipe wrench and remove any connections. If you're not familiar with plumbing you may want to get a plumber to attach the connections.


Putting a cabinet under the sink is the easy part. Make sure you have the right size cabinet. Get a leveler; make sure the sink and cabinet are level. Depending on your walls, you can just screw the cabinet to the wall. If they are plaster walls you will need wall anchors. That should do it. Enjoy

For Danze Sheriton/Plymouth tub/shower faucet, I am finishing the wall with ceramic tile and have set plumbing so plastic guard face will be flush with finished tile. One drawing in the instructions shows...


Don't cover area where plastic guard should be. Make it flush. Some trim is designed to recess into the wall before it's flush. Screws, adapters, trim etc. all will need to be installed when tile is set. Make sure you have nipples extending out from shower head and spout area's as well. If you do this and think ahead a little, you will have fewer problems assembling trim.

I bought a maax shower base. i am going to intall a cement board on the wall, water proof it and then tile over it. The shower base has a flange that is 1/4'' thick. do i install the cement board on top of...


There are two ways that I would do it depending on the width of the ledge on top of shower base. If you have enouch room I would shim studs with strips of material thick enough to bring the surface out even with flange on shower base. Then I would put cement board(wonder board) on wall and over shower flange to set on top of shower base. Finish seams on wall board per manufacturers directions,Let seam filler dry then seal with thompsons water seal or equivalent sealer. Let that dry then tile on that grouting and sealing with quality caulk at joint between shower base and tile.
If ledge on shower base is not wide enough then I would place cement board directly to studs then use filler strips on face of shower base flange to bring two surfaces flush. Water seal let dry and tile again coming down over top of shower. Grout and caulk to finish. P.S. I would use a siliconized latex emulsifier to mix in with grout. It gives a better ware proof seal. Hope this helps you. Good luck and thank you.

To whom it may concern, We recently bought a Hansa Polo mixer for our shower and our plumber has since installed it. However it appears it has been placed upside down, so our mixer is facing the wrong way....


Need Model # and brief description of particular model. You may be left with no option but to call in a professional who can pull the mixer and repair it without leaving any visibly noticable marks. Pulling the tile and drywall is a simple and straight forward repair that any competant general contractor can perform. There is no modification option to a mixer. My only question is "How did your plumber manage to install your mixer upside down?"

Garbage disposer drain pipe is lower than the p-trap


Sorry you are doomed. The only other way to install is to have a plumber come back out and lower the drain in the wall.

recalculate the distance, taking into account of drywall, tiles.
if you follow the instruction and the valves are at the indicated line, then you should be OK.
take a piece of scrap drywall and a piece of tile lay it next to the rough in just the way you would have when it is all finish. if it is till too far out, then you have to push the pipe backing back to adjust the distance.

hope that helps

How to remove old Mueller (1951) wall mount faucet


Faucets are installed from behind the wall and there fore you will need to either cut the sheetrock on the opposing side or cut part of the tile out on the front to gain access to the valve. It is better if you come in from behind as you can build an access panel if you ever need to gain access again.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.

How do you install body jets for a shower


Hi mickgosney
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber

Your question is how to tighten up in the wall without putting a stud wall in for kyra body jets.

Kyra sells about fifteen models and they are all designed to be installed in a wall of some type.
The wall lends some very nessessary support to the valve body so that the whole thing dosen't move when the handle is adjusted. Wood stud, metal stud and concrete are typical structures. If you are trying to install on a free standing shower I recomend at least some kind of creative frame to support the valve.
Feel free to contact me again.

Installation Rules?


There are four golden rules for installing a shower enclosure. The first golden rule is to make sure that the shower tray is level. If it is not, then problems will occur throughout the rest of the installation. Use a good quality spirit level and where possible install a tray that has adjustable legs. There are often problems associated with tiling over upstands as some are thick and difficult to set into the wall. The second golden rule is to install a tray that has a slim tiling up stand which is vertical and an integral part of the tray: This will make the installation easier, quicker and ensure it is totally watertight. Before installing the shower enclosure the third golden rule must be followed. A silicone sealer needs to be applied all the way around the join where the tiles meet the tray: This must be sealed first, to ensure there is no chance of water getting behind the wall channels and then into the walls. This is one of the biggest problems associated with shower installations but is easily solved if the silicon sealer is applied before the enclosure is fitted. The final golden rule is to fit the enclosure to the tiled surface and not on to a plastered wall, tiling up to it afterwards. Having installed the enclosure it is essential to use the same high quality silicone sealer around the outside of the enclosure. Sealing on the inside will cause leaking- not prevent it.
