Tile Installation:- 1st- Sand Mastec used for joints, and screw holes. 2nd- Sweep roome very good and vacuum very well. 3rd- Measure each wall to find the Center Point of the room.(I prefer nailing a board down across one side of the line to keep tiles straight, and butt tiles to the board, and put spacers in between tiles). I use a 1/4" trowel to butter tiles before laying. With using Spacers, buttering tiles, laying tiles.( I prefer using a 2 x 4 and tap tiles across with a rubber Mallet to keep all tiles same heigth). Let One side tiles laid for 24 hours. 4th- Then do the same thing with other side of line.

Finishing Project: Once all the tiles are set, and all spacers removed. Mix up color of Choice unsanded Grout, and follow Manufacturers mixture Specs. Use grout Float and fill Spacing between Tiles. Let dry for 15 minutes. Use bucket of Clean water and Big sponge rinsing frequently removing all Grout from Tiles. Let dry for 30 minutes, and clean tiles again with Clean Water. Let set overnight. Next day, take Clean towel and rub haze off the tiles. Lastly, Seal Tile and grout.

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.

Moen 3836...lost installation manual...what size drill bit for the hand held brkt.


There is no single answer that I can give you because it will vary due to material you are mounting to. If you are going to be mounting on ceramic tile or fiberglass shower wall I would recommend you use the plastic anchors that come with the bracket and mounting screws. Use drill size 3/16 drill holes and insert anchors. Mount bracket and screw in place. If you have hollow wall with nothing but sheetrock to hold the bracket I would get small butterfly anchors from hardware store and drill hole slightly larger than the wings on fastener when they are folded back along side the screws.If you have a wood backer board behind shower wall then drill holes with 1/8 inch bit and use screws long enough to reach through shower wall and sheet rock and mount bracket. Hope this helps you. Thanks P.S. If you have to drill thru ceramic tile you will need a carbide tipped bit.

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.

Mixer only moves at one speed


Referring to the following parts description:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208212369.pdf

The speed is controlled with a combination of the governor assembly #24 which mounts on the motor shaft, and the phase control board #27 which is mounted on the back of the mixer.

They operate in conjunction with item #25, the control plate assembly.

WARNING SHOCK HAZARD. FOLLOW THESE STEPS ONLY IF YOU ARE COMPETENT WORKING AROUND HOT ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS!!!

Remove the rear cover screw #37 and the rear cover #36 and examine the governor when it is running. Also watch the speed control lever mechanism as you move it from off to the highest speed watching for binding etc.

Make sure that the spring #4 is attached to the bottom of the control plate #25.

If the governor appears to be opening and closing as the speed increases and the linkage is not binding then the problem is most likely the Phase Control Board, item #27.

We have two 16 year old shower faucets (house was built in 1993 by Del Webb). Can't tell what model they are. We are guessing they are Moen Legend 3175 (one handle). Problem seems to be pressure balancing...


This is a common problem with this type of shower mixer valve. They are not very good at regulating with pressure change. Your options are somewhat limited to not flushing the toilet or using any other taps when in use, repalce the mixer valve for a modern ceramic unit or installing a 2 vane hot & cold shower pump.
