    Does dog ear elbow need to come out 90 degree

    Hi, Almost ready for Wedi board for my tub surround and the hand held shower temporary pipe looks noticeably off angle than 90 degree. Is that a problem other than i need to make a bigger hole to fit this in an angle?

    Water supply line location for the Kohler Tresham K3981

    Thanks Terry, Currently the center of waste pipe is sitting 15 1/2" ( i know.. due to the joist, this was only option) I'm planning on using Kohler's version of TOTO unifit in 14". plumber roughed the water line for the toilet at 6 1/2" away from the center of waste pipe and I asked him to put...

    Water supply line location for the Kohler Tresham K3981

    Does anybody know if the water line location specified for the Kohler Tresham K3981 has a little bit of wiggle room? The spec calls out for 6 1/2" away from the center of flange and 6" up from finished floor and mine is 6 1/2" away but 10" up. This is my first time installing one piece toilet...

    Joist right below sill prevent to make a hole for the drain pipe

    I have another question on tub drain. Kohler K-23856 spec stated that horizontal part can be minimum 9 1/2” to 14 13/16”. The tub has about 22 degree angle. Is this mean that vertical part of the drain can be slanted to push more close to the tub angle to have shorter horizontal drain length...

    doing brief math again and I don't think i can put the toilet on the west wall unless i build a bump out, about 3". since the toilet is the only fixture coming out form the wall unlike 6ft vanity occupying whole wall, I might incline to do that IF this new configuration will make the job...

    Wayne, often times when I'm getting advices from something I don't know much of , I write my own way to make senses. Please see Italic next your comments with bold font. QUOTE="wwhitney, post: 674195, member: 88515"]FWIW, the K-850 spec sheet lists K-1179 as an adhesive vinyl tiling bead to...

    Taking credit for someone else's idea happens ALL the time no matter what industry you are in, glad that you got to let it out here :) "We used the K-7147-AF-CP but just now looking at the drain you linked, I'd have used that one instead as it uses an external cable drive rather than that...

    Hi, thanks for sharing your concern. The tub will be installed as an alcove, I know it is frowned upon practice. I'm considering fabricating copper angle. something similar to below link. . It will be used by me and only me, no kids and if this tub will/can be located where proposed area...

    Thanks for stopping by. I worked really hard to add these joists to stiffen the floor ( although with lack of planning and knowledge and the plan changes that gone through several time,) I really would prefer not cutting any joist because they are added on joists are short length, 8ft, and...

    Hi Wayne, Probably not very wise move from me but I've got subfloor in and I've also purchased the tub. It's a 5ft tea for two by Kohler. It is a reversible and has an option to install it as above floor drain. I felt like it could be a safe bet, What I'm about to post might change thing...

    Yes! I’m toying with lay out with my mentor whom I met from the other forum who’s been helping me regarding strengthening the framing structures. I changed so many times on lay out, all the extra work that you see on the pics, because of me changing things. Plus I can be overboard on...
