I have just had a new shower enclosure fitted which has has to be built up off the floor to allow for drainage. This has left a 3" gap along the bottom from floor to shower base. Where can I get a piece of flexible PVC which I can bend around the base and secure to the wood frame which it now sits on?

Hello. Just go to home depot or lowes and get 2-3 spray cans of expandible foam. If you have acces to the opening between the floor and shower floor spray it around the gap. If not, Just use a small drill bit and make some holes around the wood frame and spray it. These foam will secure the shower and also will prevent the shower floor to crack it.

Can't eliminate small gap between cabinet bottom and top of microwave


If the new oven was installed according to its installation instructions, new hardware was used, new holes were drilled (into properly supported wood structure) and the opening matched the specs outlined in the instructions, it should fit.

If not, it seems like that would have been evident as you went along.

I would first retrace my steps along with the instructions, not making any assumptions, and that will probably reveal the error.

Dishwasher Whirlpool quiet partner 2 will not drain


Check your drainage hose going to the kitchen sink. It should be routed up to an air gap on kitchen sink, or ran to the highest point as possible under the kitchen sink counter and then slope down into the disposer or branch wye tailpiece on your drainage piping depending on what your drainage configuration is. Not going up to the highest point, or an air gap, before draining into your drainage piping allows the water inside the dishwasher hose to drain back into the unit.

What would be the minimum pipe size for drainage from floor trap taking flow from shower and from vanity bowl? What is the minimum pipe size for drainage shower? Ditto from vanity bowl?


That depends on the flow rate you want and your local building codes. When I rebuilt my bath, I had poor flow from both the sink and shower. My sink had 1 1/2 inch pipe and my bath had 2 inch. I replaced the entire sink run with 2 inch after the P trap and the shower I used 2 1/2 inch - problem solved!!

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.

Washer wont fill, keeps draining


If you do not allow an air gap for proper drainage on your drain line, the water will siphon out of the washer as it tries to fill. Double check to make sure: 1. You do not have the washer drain hose placed too far down into the standpipe. 2. You do not have the top of the standpipe sealed off. Placing the hose too far into the standpipe may cause the drain line to be sitting in water in the drain trap, leaving no air gap. Sealing off the top of the standpipe will have the same affect. Remember, you need an air gap for proper drainage. Only place the hose about 3 to 4 inches into the standpipe and the fit should not be tight. That is, there should be an air gap around the drain hose as it sits inside the standpipe. Double check and let me know if this helps.
