I'm proud of this one because my 22 year old son set all the tile. We started out with a big pit and it took 70 cinder blocks to build this. The French Vanilla stone I got on close out for 49 cents per foot.

The washer should not have to bend over (bad on the back) and should not have to pick up the washee, so raise it up, put in steps or a ramp. Flexible hose with adjustable nozzle is a great idea too. Towel rack and/or hooks nearby is a good idea too.

Built a seat that is much more comfortable than the edge of the tub. I use a detatchable hose with a sprayer that I can control the on/off. The quick connect is in line. Scooter likes the shower floor vs the tube a lot.

Hey Rod, your dog washes look fantastic. What do you do underneath the pan of your dog washes? That's a lot of space to fill probably 25 cu ft feet or more. Is it a big foam block these days? A wood framed deck Or just totally solid cement blocks?

And on your trough drains what do you do again for your tapered sides on the inside trough section? Just cut slivers like a half inch at drain tapering to nothing at the ends? Or just leave it unfinished?

I have been doing dogwash/utility sinks almost in every home I do lately.

Rod,

Looks like you are using more and more foam in different applications . What are the setting materials used for tilling them ?

Thanks , Rod.

It looks like a concept that is ready to sale on a larger scale ....... how much do one unit would cost ?

I may have another question , if I may , what are the other steps necessary to complete the tiled unit ...... meaning ready to be used ?

Roberto,
They are $421 plus shipping and handling .
The unit is assambled, waterproofed and has the drain already installed.
It has a 2" abs pipe coming out on the bottom.
My contractors run a hot and cold hose bib out the wall into the garage and after a mop sink valve gets installed into the back of the unit , hoses get hooked up like a washing machine.
