mop sink

I am pricing a floor mop sink 36x30 on a commercial job wondering how much to charge for the labor Be installed on a concrete floor mud base with preslope. In North Carolina I know prices are different everywhere. Any input would be appreciated.

They were talking about going with a custom marble base. When I rough in the plumbing not exactly in the center so it would need to be custom. I am going to price a tile base they will probably go with whatever is cheaper I would always prefer to use tile not even sure how much the marble would cost.

Aaron,

Seems to me it's a miniature shower. I'd probably hit them about a grand for the tile work.

Small mop sink, right?

Yea its small it would be done exactly like a tile shower base. Guess I know I charge more for plumbing on commercial jobs just haven't did any tile work in commercial yet, not sure if ya'll charge more for commercial work or what.

It is on a concrete slab do I need to do any thing to the concrete itself before putting down my preslope. The concrete is probably 2 months old not sure if there is a sealer on top dont believe so .

John had a picture of Schluter's mop sink here somewhere. My picture of it is a little too big, but I'll shrink it down.

You could always cut down a tray and Kerdi everything. It'd be one fine-looking mop sink.

This is a little too much stainless steel for my liking, but you could always use anodized Schiene instead.

Sure. Use 4x4 quarry if you can get it. It'll line up with the square drain.

The only 4x4 quarry tile I've ever seen I made out of 4x8s.

Schluter needs to come out with a drain equipped with a stopper.

For the amount of area you have to do, you can pick a tile that will make your job stand out. The cost won't be that much more to use a tile that gives it that little 'extra'.

Perhaps a 4" porcelain?
