SOURCE: how do i fit an electric shower to a tiled wall

You may be access the pipes from the other side of the wall containing those pipes. so rather than have to cut into your tiled wall, you will be cutting into whatever is on the other side of that stud wall.

SOURCE: Shower arm is loose

The best way is to cut a hole in the wall and fix it right. That will entail replacing the surface material, probably sheetrock. You could try some silicone sealant around the shower arm behind the eschusion. It will still move, but not much.

SOURCE: Have a Delta R10000 Faucet

You should have a template in the kit for this. The web site will also have detail specifications.

Short of that (and I've been there) use a piece of cardboard. Trace the outside edge. Now make in inner circle the width of the flange area. Cut out the remaining center. Align it to the shaft on the wall and mark your cut line. Some of these have a single screw that attach the cover to the hardware in the back. Being a thin wall you may need to set back the plumbing tree to get the cover all the way in. If you are soldering the fittings be sure to remove the nylon sleeve first as the heat can damage it.

Seem to have water leaking under shower into storage competition ment, tried caulking only happens when shower is on and someone is in it very frustrating


Very often happens for a number of reasons

Bad caulking around the shower base and the base drops with the weight of the occupant allowing water past the caulking.

Crack and bad seal on a wall tile.

A split in the base itself which opens up with weight and you can't see with the base empty.

A leak in the pipes behind the wall from the mixer unit to the shower head.

Split pipes or fitting to the drain.

Best way is a full tear down, refurbishment and start anew :>)

I a leak under my tub, think it's from the shower, it doesn't leak with a full tub of water or ewhen you empty the tub, but when you're in the shower a flow of water comes out under the shower piping side...


Check out the faucet plate mounted on tub side for a good seal. Water can leak down this plate causing it to look like the valve is leaking.
When you are in the shower it splash's water against the valve and water will run down behind it. Check the tub spout and if you have tile check the chaulked joint where tub and wall meet.

My thermostatic mixer shower will not turn off


he probably put it together wrong.
there is usually a blue gasket inside for testing purposes, if that is not removed, the valve will not turn off.

There is virtually no water flow from the shower faucet we have just plumbed in. there is plenty of water pressure to the sink which is on the same lines. is there anyway to take off the thermostatic...


shower heads are fitted with a 'flow limiter' which is no more than a washer under the sealing gasket where the 'head' fits to the supply pipe.un-screw shower head from pipe,remove 'limiter' reinstall & enjoy.

Replace old vinyl/plastic type stand up shower - I want to convert over using tile. What do i use as a bottom pan i can tyle over?


You could make a base that would be framed up 2x4's and covered with a waterproofing membrane. lay concrete floor, sloped to drain (2piece) and tile. Or use a fibergass base that fits to studs. And then tile walls.

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.
