Question about Home

1 Answer

I am originally from Europe and we are remodelling our master bathroom, put in a new fancy shower with european type frameless glass etc. We also put in a new bathtub with an air motor (or something like that). The bathtub faucets I do have trouble with it is a Kohler type K-T10278 withthe 1/2'' mount valve type K-300. After building up the whole stuff I checked it with the plug and there was no leakage (I was happy for the soldering part looked to be O.K, I have done that quite some more but it was a while ago) After finishing up and connecting the spout assemmbly and puuting on the water pressure :A slight constant laking of the valves is the result. My (American) wife doesn't like it for I have to go under the floor to put on or shut of the water whenever she wants to take bath. HELP??

If you got valve to hot while sodering the fitting's and melted washers in facuet.

You can take stems out while soldering them or use a compression type fitting near faucet to avoid this if this is the problem. Lowes & Home depot or supply house carry shark bit fiting's or compresion fitting that may work.

You need to make this request in the original post under Tom's reply to you. You will see the word COMMENT, click on that and Tom will get a notification that you require further help. Fixya gets 9 million posts a year so the chances of someone seeing it as slim to none.

Is there a way to make a stud wall for a shower part transparent?


You mean clear plastic dry wall? or how about a window? How about removing the wall and putting in glass panel? Glass block? Anything can be done, depends on your imagination. An exterior wall can be totally removed with a lintel replaced in the top, and interior wall can be totally removed with no lintel, depending on trusses, or rafter placement.If you want to leave the studs exposed in the wall, I would clean them up a bit. The problem with that is you can't clean it and the panels are subject to fogging up inside, condensation will get in there, an exterior wall is a bad idea, no insulation. Hope this helps.

I have frameless shower doors, the bottom sill is tile, with grout lines. Water leaks under the shower door through the grout lines, how to correct this.


if the glass actually contacts the tile you can go to the homedepot or similar place and buy some glass silicone sealer and just run a nice bead of caulk along the line, make sure you get clear silicone and let it thooroughly dry before you get it wet

Frameless shower door sticking to the opposite wall when closing


you can fix this problem by loostening the clamp screw and putting locktite sealer(you can purchase locktite from hd or lowes locktite is not the only product you can call a glass supplier and as for recommendation) Be sure to read the directions on the tube I use it to seal joints on refrigeration threaded parts. Make sure it will adhere to glass and metal also review the clean up solvent when you do this place a wood wedge at the bottom of the glass dooor and the threashold to support he weight until the sealer driese

Steps

1 Place wood wedge/block under door where non hinged side meets wall


2 losten top hinge(inspect bottom hinge to make sure it is snug and the glass dor is all the way into the hinge

3 You may have to remove the top hinge completely to get enough of the locktite on the metal and glass place the locktite on the hinge flat plate and the glass

4 recheck gap where door meets wall( I sometimes use paint stirs(wood) as shims to keep space between door and wall consistent

5 tighten top inge screws( you can put locktite on the screw threas also

6 Clean excess locktite and wait suggested time by instructions on tube


Good Luck!

Hi rbyerly,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is:
remodeled bathroom,installed new moen valve and hardware. Now water is coming from both the shower head and the faucet when the diverter is in the down postion. Question; Is this a single handle or three handle diverter? Assuming it's a three handle, it should just be a mater of adjusting the center handle. If single, the diverter is in the spout not the valve. I don't know how to direct you further without specifics. Feel free contact me again!
Please give me a rating here at fixya.com before you sign off
Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber
