    Moving shower drain across floor joist

    Below is the diagram of my bathroom plumbing system, hopefully it's somewhat correct. I'd like to move shower drain to the right of the joist (marked with 'new'). I was thinking about following options, that might as well be incorrect because I am not very versed in plumbing codes: * Move drain...

    Venting a basement shower remodel

    Hello all, In the process of a remodel and I'm trying to wrap my head around how to vent the shower. The way I see it, I have two options based on where everything needs to be. Option A (red lines are my proposed runs): Option B: The shower trap will be too close to the wall to fork off of...

    Hi, I have a standard Moen mixer shower valve. In the winter it is hard to keep the right mix of water to keep a constant temp out of the shower head. Yes I could replace the cartridge again and maybe see marginal improvements. Wife is tired of always adjusting it back and forth in the...

    Basement rough in plumbing questions

    Long time reader - first time poster. Thanks in advance for the advice! I'm framing a basement for a friend. The house is only 11 years old, I'm impressed by the builders work, the entire house is plumbed with pex and has a very detailed manifold where practically every fixture is a homerun...

    Low water pressure after remodel

    Hello. I had to change my entire shower and I put a shutoff valve on the cold and hot water lines. They stayed off (and uncapped- I only recently learned about caps) for just over 2 months. The line goes bathroom sink-> shower-> kitchen sink. Ever since I put the shut off valves on, the water...

    M-Core, Does twin ell replace valve separation specs for no stacking leak?

    Hello, longtime lurker here with my first post! I'm a DIYer plumbing a tub/shower with Moen m-core parts. I had intended to follow the layout in the first image from Moen's online design guide, which caps the shower port and includes a twin ell. However, the instructions with my mixing valve...

    Installing tile edge trim first

    Can I install tile edge trim by embedding it in thinset, and letting it dry? And then install the shower wall tile at a later date? Or, should tile edge trim be installed at the same time as the wall tile?

    Replacing tub with standing shower

    Hello, I am looking to replace my tub with a standing shower. I have a couple of questions. Can I replace the 30" wide tub with a 32" wide shower pan, or will this cause issues with the drain lining up? How complicated might the drain be to move? Also, is there a problem with having the drain...

    Sizing PEX for Shower

    My apologies in advance if this has been asked and answered in another forum or thread. I am in the middle of a bathtub to shower conversion; as part of this remodel, we had to pull up the subfloor (rotted) and re-locate water lines because they came up through the subfloor where the shower pan...

    Wye not cut it in here?

    I am installing a new linear shower drain. What I hope to do is install the new drain upstream of the 1.5” dry vent, however there is already one 2” vented drain that discharges just above the vent (originates at my washing machine). Reading code 909.2, it appears that I should not install the...

    I have a glacier bay HL-40 shower valve that started acting up. (i assumed it was the valve) When I turn it from cold to hot it starts off fine and then at a certain point *clunk* it makes a clunk noise cutting off the flow of water and dribbling water out. I replaced the valve. Same issue...

    Greetings. We’re looking to install a glass shower enclosure in a corner in a guest bath in a California.

    1/2” brass close nipple too long

    Hey! I’ve found similar threads but none that exactly match what I’m looking for. I need to attach a shower supply elbow to a female threaded fitting, but I didn’t leave enough room for the nipple. The smallest 1/2” npt brass close nipple I can find is 1-1/8” long. I need to be closer to 3/4”...
