Question about Moen & One Handle Tub & Shower Faucet

1 Answer

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 installing the Adler single handle for shower only.

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 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.

Adjust hot water on hansgrohe metro shower


The hand shower and wall bar does not control temp. The valve in the wall would control the temperature of the water going to the shower. I would need to be able to identify the model number of the valve in the wall to be able to give accurate instructions on temperature adjustment. If you need help identifying this valve feel free to give me a call at Hansgrohe 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech and ask for David Scarborough

I bought a maax shower base. i am going to intall a cement board on the wall, water proof it and then tile over it. The shower base has a flange that is 1/4'' thick. do i install the cement board on top of...


There are two ways that I would do it depending on the width of the ledge on top of shower base. If you have enouch room I would shim studs with strips of material thick enough to bring the surface out even with flange on shower base. Then I would put cement board(wonder board) on wall and over shower flange to set on top of shower base. Finish seams on wall board per manufacturers directions,Let seam filler dry then seal with thompsons water seal or equivalent sealer. Let that dry then tile on that grouting and sealing with quality caulk at joint between shower base and tile.
If ledge on shower base is not wide enough then I would place cement board directly to studs then use filler strips on face of shower base flange to bring two surfaces flush. Water seal let dry and tile again coming down over top of shower. Grout and caulk to finish. P.S. I would use a siliconized latex emulsifier to mix in with grout. It gives a better ware proof seal. Hope this helps you. Good luck and thank you.

Hello. You're not going to believe this, but MAXX says that the drain and the wall pannels (glued) will keep it in place if the floor is properly leveled before. Personally, when I installed mine (model 105525 - exactly the same installation instructions) I used silicone on the base at each stud area. it's secure, but not permanent, and won't allow an area for a crack to form.

Hope this helps.

funny somebody asked this question last night. here is the adjusting procedure:

This procedure for the 289 and early 302 V8 engines is designed for engines in which the rocker arm mounting studs do not incorporate a positive stop shoulder on the mounting stud. These engines were originally equipped with this kind of stud. However, due to production differences, it is possible some 289 or early 302 engines may be encountered that are equipped with positive stop rocker arm mounting studs. Before following this procedure, verify that the rocker arm mounting studs do not incorporate a positive stop shoulder. On studs without a positive stop, the shank portion of the stud that is exposed just above the cylinder head is the same diameter as the threaded portion, at the top of the stud is of greater diameter than the threaded portion, this identifies it as a positive stop rocker arm stud and the procedure for the 351 engine should be followed.
  1. Crank the engine until No. 1 cylinder is at TDC of the compression stroke and the timing pointer is aligned with the mark on the crankshaft damper.
  2. Scribe a mark on the damper at this point.
  3. Scribe three more marks on the damper, dividing the damper into quarters (see illustration).
  4. With mark A aligned with the timing pointer, adjust the valves on No. 1 cylinder by backing off the adjusting nut until the pushrod has free-play in it. Then, tighten the nut until there is no free-play in the rocker arm. This can be determined by turning the pushrod while tightening the nut; when the pushrod can no longer be turned, all clearance has been removed. After the clearance has been removed, tighten the nut an additional 1 / 4 of a turn.
  5. Repeat this procedure for each valve, turning the crankshaft 1 / 4 turn to the next mark each time and following the engine firing order of 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8.

Need to know how to adjust valves on a ford 289 engine


I assume you have hydraulic lifters. If not, please get back to me. We used to do this with the covers off and the engine running, but that was messy. Here is procedure from autozone.com:

I have an old home with a one hand Temptrol shower diverter which no longer regulates H2O temp properly. I purchased a Delta Carlisle 174939-SS-I and need to know how best to install this unit. I am a 60...


Start by turning the water off to the whole house. Open the tiled wall or if there is access behind the old valve open that wall instead. With a tubing cutter cut the hot and cold water lines as well as the shower riser. Remove any clips that are securing the valve to the wooden studs. Mount the new valve in the same area as the old. Make sure that the valve is not upside down arrows on the brass body will indicate flow direction for the tub spout. Connect the water supply lines to the new valve by means of soldering or mechanical joint. Connect the existing shower riser by means of soldering or mecnaical joint. Turn the water on and test for leaks.

How do you install body jets for a shower


Hi mickgosney
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber

Your question is how to tighten up in the wall without putting a stud wall in for kyra body jets.

Kyra sells about fifteen models and they are all designed to be installed in a wall of some type.
The wall lends some very nessessary support to the valve body so that the whole thing dosen't move when the handle is adjusted. Wood stud, metal stud and concrete are typical structures. If you are trying to install on a free standing shower I recomend at least some kind of creative frame to support the valve.
Feel free to contact me again.
