Hi there...I have the rounde river rock for the shower floor and am wondering if the wall tiles should be completed before the floor.

I'm thinking it won't look all that great with the wall tiles coming down on top of the rocks...am using a schluter shower system. Thanks for any assistance! Denise

SOURCE: Toilet on uneven floor

I believe that I qualify... over 300 toilets installed in the past 15 months!!

I would go with the wax rings... but I would press the ring into the base of the toilet before installing the toilet....that way you are sure to have a good seal to the toilet....

If you actually read the directions, the manufacturer will tell you to press the wax ring onto the toilet....then install it onto the floor drain.
I guess that a PLAIN wax ring placed on the floor drain (since it is recessed) before placing the rubber-sleeve equipped ringed toiled is a good safety measure... I have done that an it work about 37 times out of 40.

Good question - BTW.. and well worded. THANKS for being specific and precise!!

They probably use wrong adhesive that is not hard yet and have tenedency under pressure to squeze out between grout lines. Yes they need to address the problem immediately.

SOURCE: i bought a maax shower

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.

How do i work out square meterage for a bathroom (floor and walls)? I need to retile


Multiply length by height in metres for each wall, and add up all these wall areas. Then multiply length times breadth for the floor, not forgetting the shower. If it is irregular in shape, divide it up into rectangular sections, measure each and add together for a floor total.

You will need then to add about 10% to floor and wall totals for wastage.

You don't say whether you are tiling yourself, but take special care in waterproofing in the shower and under the bath, if any. Also take care with the fall to the floor drain in the shower recess, if any.

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.

Replace old vinyl/plastic type stand up shower - I want to convert over using tile. What do i use as a bottom pan i can tyle over?


You could make a base that would be framed up 2x4's and covered with a waterproofing membrane. lay concrete floor, sloped to drain (2piece) and tile. Or use a fibergass base that fits to studs. And then tile walls.
