It’s always something. The flange pipe only overlaps the drain pipe by a little under 5/8”. Is that enough of an overlap? Looks like taller flanges with stainless rings are few and far between, at...

Thanks, Jim. I have a stainless flange, I just didn't have it for the pics.

I'm reusing the toilet, which I know is nice and flat. The wildcard is going to my my tile job under the commode. Thanks...

I forgot the stainless flange, but the dimensions are the same as this steel one I need to return. Seems like plenty of metal overlap, but the PVC ring that holds the metal ring looks like it sits...

Me again! Question about the closet flange. I cut the hole in the underlayment bigger than it needs to be and it's slightly offset so that there's roughly a 3/4" gap between the floor and the edge of...

Floor tile going down tomorrow. 6x36 wood plank in a random pattern. Couple questions. The whole right side of the floor will be covered by toilet and vanity, so is it okay to go with a full tile...

I knew I couldn't match the speed of the YouTube pros, but goodness, I didn't expect to be THIS slow. It took a little over a week for just the tile and grout (after work on weekdays, in my defense),...

Couldn’t take it. I pulled the bottom of the strip up enough to fill with more Kerdi Fix.

Ran into a problem sealing the gap. The sides are good, but I ran out of Kerdi Fix on the back wall. It was late, so I just finished the job. Now I’m concerned. This will all be getting Aquaseal over...

Got it, that makes sense. So, I'll have to wrap the corners one way or the other, but three pieces means I'm only dealing with a couple of inches of rise/fall versus the full length?

BTW, for...

Thanks, cx. Any reason NOT to use a single piece of band all the way around? Can you expand on this?

Thanks, Dan. That's probably what I'm going to do. Anything else seems like a compromise as I'm sure any water that gets to the bottom of the backer board will work it's way back up and over the...

Thanks, Jim. I need to stop working until 2AM because I wasn't correct about the taper. The walls do lean in a little, but less than 1/8" over the full height after some sanding. I do like the idea...

Thanks again, folks! Pardon the radio silence, but I've been spending 12 hour days putting this bathroom back together.

10-4 on the Plytanium. I may have gotten it confused with DryGuard.

Sorry, 5/8" subfloor.

Good to know about screws. Why no joists?

Joists are spaced at 14", perpendicular to the tub which...

@speed51133

Subfloor is 1/2" plus new layer, which is 3/4". It's a 5x5.5 space, so one big 4x5 piece and two smaller pieces joined at a joist. I'm using 2.5" wood screws at the joists, and 1 5/8"...
