Shower membrane installation before tile?

Q. I cut a chase in sub-floor to change plumbing from a tub to a shower, i covered sub-floor with 1/4 durarock,then cement for a solid base,morter mix to slope floor towards drain i was then going to install a membrane when customers tile installer said it had to be removed and replaced that i installed it incorrectly. It was my understanding that after the membrane he was to install thinset over membrane and then tile. can someone please help answer my questions i still am not sure if i made any mistakes i was trying to ensure a good base for durable longevity

A. The membrane goes behind the durock, and under the mortar bed, the idea is that the membrane holds all the water in and is the last defense between the wood and durock/mortar bed, thinset wont bond to the membrane, it is meant to be attached to concrete of some form whether durock or the mortar bed. putting a membrane in between will keep the the thinset from attaching properly and in turn would cause a horrible tile job, you will need to rip out everything you did and start over from the frame work, dont be surprised if this customer doesn’t call you back for anymore work. i would suggest hiring a sub-contractor who knows how to do the job properly and eat the cost if you want to maintain any kind of reputation. and dont take jobs that you aren’t 100% sure you know how to do. i dont suggest shoving the membrane under the mortar bed or making an attempt to “make” it work. if its not done right and it leaks you can face a law suit for future water damage because of poor installation of membrane. It has to be done right.

What does it mean when a house needs new plumbing?

Q. A realtor told this to my fiance on a house. Rather than going ahead and paying an inspector, what does this mean? What does “new plumbing” entail?

A. Well it depends on WHAT he told her. if he said new plumbing then he probably means new water AND drain lines. that would be a repipe of both systems. but if he said new kitchen lines or bathroom lines then he meant just that. find out EXACTLY what her told her. NOW after saying that i would STILL get the inspector bacause he doesnt just check plumbing. he looks at the WHOLE house. the framing and support. electrical. plumbing. foundation. roof. walls. EVERYTHING. so i would definitely get the inspector that way u will know everything thats needs fixing and not just the plumbing

How much would it cost to finish and remodel my basement?

Q. I want to rent out my basement by adding a small kitchen with a stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher,sink and two, small, counter tops. I want to add a bathroom with a corner shower, double sink vanity, and toilet. I don’t have any plumbing down there. I also need to add a small walls and doors. thanks.

A. Ollie, people often hire a remodeling contractor to do something like this–totally remodel their basement into a living place–since it usually requires a lot of trades (electrical, interior walls, etc.), and a remodeling contractor usually handles all of such trades, making it–in theory–cheaper to pay one contractor as opposed to paying each specialized-trade contractor. There are plenty of local remodeling contractors seeking to give free estimates with no obligation, and taking advantage of this is the consumer-smart way to go about finding an accurate answer to your question. It’s important that you get a local estimate and not rely on guesses found here on Yah, as a lot of factors really bear on the cost of such a project, including the following: The cost of material and labor greatly varies by location. A local remodeling contractor can easily assist you in this project of yours. If you negotiate well with the contractor and he buys the building materials for you, you may try to have him pass the discounted cost of the materials to you in exchange for giving him the job, as usually contractors get discounts (called “contractor’s discounts” or “contractor’s price”) when buying from suppliers because of the many purchases they make as required by their jobs. As I said, free estimates from local remodeling contractors are the key to your success in this home improvement project of yours. Here’s a great link to a handyman site that offers free very resourceful information to assist you in determining the cost of your project, and, ultimately, selecting a local remodeling contractor in an effort to get the best deal for you: REMODELING CONTRACTOR INFO: http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_Free_Estimates_Remodeling_In_Gen.htm I’m sure you’ll find the information you need, specifically the tips, useful as it relates to being treated fairly by contractors and exploring the consumer-wise approach of getting free written estimates to find the best contractor in your area. Source(s): The Internet. Just whatever is available online and what I have on my mind, including the inclusion of relevant sites, like the one cited that came about from my efforts, which is intended to be useful. Helping people get the relevant info they want is great.

When a big city installs a plumbing system are there many models?

Q. Do they say “We have 25 plumbing systems for sale?” In Milwaukee Metro there are about 2 million people. Heavy rainfall, nearly torrential, can happen and produce twelve inches of water in less than 60 hours. Do the public vote on what kind of plumbing system we have? In the massive urban sprawl of Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Ozaukee counties you are “only safe if you’re on a hill” during flash floods. I would be willing to pay extra taxes to afford the best plumbing system.

A. There wouldn’t be a specific model they can just install in a city, instead they would hire a contractor who would engineer and draft up plans tailored to the needs of the city. Price would be determined by the thoroughness and quality of the materials used.

Adding a basement bath, anyone know any websights with good plumbing diagrams?

Q. I can’t find any good diagrams/photos on basement plumbing, below slab. I know about vents, slopes and tying in. I just want to see diagrams. Thanks in advance.

A. Did you check with Lowes or Home Depot? They usually help people out with diagrams of kitchen and bathrooms. When we put our bathroom in our basement, we had to build a platform for the plumbing to fit under. Good Luck. Wish I could help more.

How do i get started in plumbing?

Q. I’m a 20 year old female that is currently in a dead end factory job. I want to get into the plumbing industry but don’t know where to start with courses, apprenticeships, learning at home and everything that is on offer now. If anyone has done this or knows someone that has, or if anyone knows of any companies that take on apprentices it would be really helpful. Especially if anyone knows of any female plumbing companies.

A. Forget it! there’s no work for plumbers never mind apprentices. firms all over the uk are goin out of buisness or shortening there workload so id stay away for a couple of years. dont listen to people who say woman cant be plumbers etc. half the guys i work with would be better of in a tutu!
