    Finishing Around a Wall-Hung Toilet Frame

    Thanks for that. As you can no doubt tell, It's the first time I've fitted a Wall-Hung bog and I think it's one of those "Jesus, will this work" moments from someone who doesn't do this forra living :eek::D

    Finishing Around a Wall-Hung Toilet Frame

    I've been busy boarding my bathroom renovation with Marmox Multiboards on the stud walls and Q-Boards on the external wall, which have gone on great but I'm now wondering what would be the best option for the Geberit Bog Frame ? I can get away with a thickness of either 18mm or 20mm so I've got...

    Mira Flight Level 1800 x 800 Tray Bedding

    Cheers Madrab, seeing as Mira still haven't replied to me yet, it's nice to know that I've not bought a lemon :D Exactly my thoughts as well Madrab as I thought silicone wouldn't really provide any support to the areas of the base of the tray that weren't actually touching the floor. I had...

    Mira Flight Level 1800 x 800 Tray Bedding

    Sorry Johnny, I didn't receive an email notification so I missed your post. Thanks for the heads-up as I'd completely forgot about asking whether the concrete slab would require priming (y)

    Mira Flight Level 1800 x 800 Tray Bedding

    Thanks for the reply Madrab. I did see that the MI states Silicon or Mortar. I take it your Flight Level tray was totally flat across the base then with you using Silicon ? If I tried to use silicon on mine, there would prolly be 30% or more of it that would have no support at all ! Seeing as...

    Mira Flight Level 1800 x 800 Tray Bedding

    Having a closer look at the tray, it appears that an area about 90mm in from all four edges (where I'm guessing the legs would fit) is set higher up than the rest of the base, by about 8mm and there is a thin lip at the very edges. Also, the area where the waste seals to is also slightly lower...

    Sealing Joints/Fixing Points on Marmox Multiboard

    Nobody got any opinions ? I'm leaning towards the Abacus stuff coz it seems to be fairly easy to apply but I'm willing to defer to anyone with more experience

    Sealing Joints/Fixing Points on Marmox Multiboard

    I've got my bathroom boarded now with Marmox Multiboard. Just got to wait for the tile adhesive to go off on the small area of wall I had to stick some to so I can fit the mechanical fixings. I'm just not 100% certain on what joints should use waterproof tape (and which one to use) and which...

    Mira Flight Level 1800 x 800 Tray Bedding

    Can someone please explain to me why fitting the tray in the description above is not recommended using "dabs" of adhesive, rather than a solid bed of mortar when the tray can also be fitted on legs which only have about a 2" diameter contact patch over 16 areas of the tray ? Surely dabs of...

    Deck mounted spray head for Bath

    Hi, looking for a bit of advice before I take the plunge and spend any cash on summat that may not be feasible. I'm going to be fitting a Carron Whirlpool bath and plumbing in an Aqualisa Quartz Overflow Filler so we don't have any taps on show. If our lass has a bath, she would normally wash...

    Replacing DPM/Sealing Waste Pipe Questions.

    Thanks for the reply cdbe and also for spotting the typo re: DPM & DPC :whistle:. All of the bungalows around here have the same double DPC, two courses apart, so I guess it was just how the developer did it at the time. I was going to try to cut the hole in the new bit of DPM as accurate as I...

    Replacing DPM/Sealing Waste Pipe Questions.

    I wonder if some of you guys would mind giving me some pointers on the best way to finish off the work I'm having to prepare for fitting my shower tray on a concrete floor please ? I've posted this in the Building Forum as it seems more apt than the Plumbers Forum and I've attached some pics to...

    Bathroom Fan Ventilation changes

    I'm glad about that as I spent quite a long time a few years ago when I originally bought the fan, researching the best one to get (y) Like me you mean ? :LOL::LOL::LOL: Tbh John, like I said earlier, I'll put up with the noise as the fan appears to be doing it's job. I was just trying to...

    Bathroom Fan Ventilation changes

    I'm surprised you saying they're loud John coz without the ducting connected it's virtually silent ! I honestly thought 90% of the noise I was experiencing was from the actual airflow through the ductwork. :unsure: According to the spec sheet, the one I've got has got a ball-bearing motor...

    Bathroom Fan Ventilation changes

    Hi, dunno if this is the correct forum to ask this but I am changing my bathroom around totally to how it used to be and I was wondering what the best way to alter the extraction setup would be. Currently, there is one vent hole in the ceiling, about 500mm away from where the old bath used to...

    Foam-type tile backing boards

    I've just found that the elements board can be bought in 2400mm x 1200mm sizes according to one site advertising it and it appears to be just over half the price of Wedi boards. If the 12.5mm thick variant is OK to bridge a 400mm stud spacing, I think I'll go with that. I've seen some videos on...

    Foam-type tile backing boards

    This is my worry after reading up on the subject. Also, the existing bath had leaked ever so slightly at the silicone seal around it's edge as I found out when I ripped out the old Stramit wall. A four-inch deep section of it was just basically black rot ! There seem to be so many much better...

    Foam-type tile backing boards

    Yeah, wouldn't be too much work admittedly - cheers. So just shoving some extra noggins in to match the board edges is the way to go, the 400mm spacing between the vertical studs isn't a problem ? The bathroom has one external wall but one backs onto the dining room, the other two back onto...
