If I remember correctly, lexel sticks to lexel. It comes in white and I think other colors. Why not use that?

A big 130 cfm fan would work great for stank removal. Why I'm reluctant to use one:

The bigger full bath downstairs uses a smaller 80 cfm fan which works great. I feel stupid using a much...

I have a small 4'x6' half-bath I need to install an vent fan in. There's not a good place to mount the normal in-ceiling/wall bathroom fan so I was going to use an inline one and run ducting to a...

The left-right offset of the drain from the sanitary tee (actually it's just a regular tee but the inspector didn't seem to have a problem with it) is flexible because the walls and the floor aren't...

There's no wallboard yet, Wayne. It's pretty much in the same state as what's in the picture in post 13 of this thread. The sink is 24"x14" with the drain hole 6-1/2" from the back. If they're...

Thanks all.
