How can I replace a shower faucet with 5-1/8 inch spacing with something available now?


With such tight spacing you would probably be better off considering a single handle tub set. Central Bras makes a 6" center tub set, uncommon, available through Park Supply, part number: UBF633-T ph# 1-800-877-9449 which may be usable with only slight modifications to your surround.

I have a jacuzzi whirlpool tub in my home that has started to leak at the three button control panel. Flooded out the bathroom so I cut a hole in the tile surround and when the pump is running it leak


First thing you need to do is remove some skirting so you can actually see where the water is coming from.
The 3 position control panel would only leak if the water was above it or covering it if it is located in the wall of the tub. That solution would only require the bather to NOT fill the tub quite so full.
IF however the water is coming from another location then that will be noticeable when you are checking for the water leak.

We have a shower surround that is 1/4" thick. However, there is a void of at least 1" from the stud. Where do you mount the valve on the stud? Should it be in the middle or offset? We are...


can you get behind the surround?
Install it in the dead center of your cut out. Use 1x1x3" to support the piping behind your wall of the surround. silicone one side of each 1x1 apply to the wall between pipe and wall then use 1/2" copper "two hole straps/clamps" (any hardware guy will know this when you ask for them.) Use 1/4 - 3/8" drywall screws to fasten the pipe straps to the 1x1's. You'll get your stability when you install your escushtion (beauty ring) on the inside of the shower. Will tighten up against your 1x1's.

You'll see,
Enjoy,

Mike.
Ps. Plz leave a remark.

How can I attach a ceramic towel bar inside a tub surround without drilling through the surround? I was thinking about a good water proof glue. Any suggestions??


You could use a good water proof glue but that would only work for a short while. What kind of material is the surrounding made of? Ceramic towel bars are normally set in ceramic surroundings. If you really must have this towel bar you may have to cut two squares out of the surrounding and put in two ceramic tiles, that way you can put ceramic on ceramic.

We need to find a bathtub/surround that is 58" long, depth and width do not matter.


If you need it 58" the length of a tub is 60" so any enclosure will work. Most enclosure's will fit a tub that is 57" to 61" in length and come at 52" tall.

Good Luck hope this helps.

Need installation instructions for ASB model# 36850 Hudson tub surround


This is a 5 piece surround. For this project you will need the surround, polystryene adhesive, a utility knife, caulking and caulking gun, dish soap and the box the surround came in. On this type of surround the back and end walls are installed 1st and then the corner shelves are installed. Ensure the wallboard or substrate is clean and free of contaminates. Best to install new backer board or moisture resistant drywall first before proceeding. You will need adhesive specifically designed to glue the panels and corner shelving to the walls. Common product is PL700 from Lepage. Follow the manufactures instructions for the adhesive you are using. Avoid any adhesives not approved for use with plastics as they will damage the surround. Remove the tub spout, hot and cold water handles and diverter handle if your shower is equiped with one. Common diverters are a pull up on the tub spout. Install the panels with the bottom edge directly on the tub deck. For the end panel where the plumbing comes through you will need to cut access holes. Use the box that the surround came in as a template so that you are not accidentilly cutting holes in the wrong location. After installing the panels and shelving corners you will need to seal the seams with 100% silicone caulk. Peel the shelf edges back slightly and run a bead of caulk underneath the seam. Smooth the caulk line out. TIP Use a latex glove and dip your finger in dishsoap. The silicone will not stick to the dishsoap and will leave a clean fine line. Run a 1/4 bead of silicone where the surround meets the tub and also where the plumbing goes through the surround. Allow to dry and cure as per the manufacture's suggestions. TIP Install expanding foam in the cavaties of the shelving. This will provide a more rigid shelf and will extend the life of your new tub surround. Good luck with your project.

My tub surrounding is about a half a inch wide


You may want to try to find some thin ceramic tile beading and gluing it in place and caulking the remaining gap. Use a waterproof construction glue. This is most likely to be something you customize to fit. Often you can rent a ceramic wet saw and cut tiling to fit the need. Use proper safety gear, and be particularly careful if ripping thin pieces less you gain the nickname stubby.

Trying to remove cowell from Roman tub faucet


The Price Phister Roman tub spout needs to be tightened from beneath.
If you do not have a removable skirt on the tub it will be a bit difficult to tighten.
Should you have crawl space under the tub and are careful to locate the dead space between the tub and the skirt you can cut a hole beneath the valve and spout location and reach up from below to tighten the spout.
If you have tile as a surround and no access from below you will have to remove some of the tile in order to gain access.

You may want to call in a proffessional plumber to handle this.

Hope this helps,

sanray
