How to best use Stanley Mirror Mastic?


Make sure the wall where the mirror is going to be, is perfectly flat. if you are going to install the 4x6 ft mirror. you need minimum of 3/8" board, if not 1/2". yu use mastic the same way you use caulking. on the safety side, I recommend you install upper and lower railing. the mastic will hold the mirror, three glop on each side and enough in the body of the mirror. press on hard, but too hard you will break the mirror the mastic will take about a week to cure completely.

We are staying in a rented home with a spa bath. Attached to the spa bath is a hand held shower. The showerhead rests above the bath but the pipe coils somewhere between the tiles and the bath and can be pulled out when in use. The shower head has come away from the pipe and the pipe has dropped down into the gap. There is only a small hole in the actual bath where the shower was attached so I can not get in that way to reattach it. There is row of small black square tiles between the floor and the larger white tiles down the side of the bath. One of these black tiles looks like the grouting has been removed before. Would that be the way in? What is that tile grouted to? only the tiles surrounding it or would it be attached to something behind too?


The grout between tiles is just for filling the gaps. The tiles are glued to the wall, usually with "thin-set" mortar. Unless that mortar is in very poor condition it is unlikely that you would be able to remove that single tile without breaking it. The wall behind the tile might be water-resistant drywall (a poor quality situation) or it should be cement-board. I suppose it's possible that there is already a hole in the wall behind the tile, but the hole would be smaller than the tile, and assuming 4 inch (not large) tiles, this is a poor choice to gain access to the pipes. The usual access is through the wall from the other side. During initial construction, a removable access panel is sometimes provided (depending on local building codes and whims of the builder). If there is no access panel, and the other side of the wall is drywall, then cutting a generous hole, and fashioning a plywood panel (with trim around the edge to cover the gap between the drywall and the plywood) is a pretty standard and simple approach (depending on your skills). As an alternative and for more info, here's a link describing how to install a plastic snap-in access panel. Good luck! http://www.diylife.com/2008/06/23/plumbing-access-panel-installation/

I did a really dumb thing... Kohler bypass shower doors, frameless. For some odd reason, the bottom piece fell off the inside door! I scraped off the left over silicon glue, got some more, and very carefully glued it on the wrong way. Now I can't hang the door again. I can either spend a bunch of time trying to cut the glue, pull the bottom off and then put it back correctly, OR, I figure I can take off the handle and simply put it back on but on the other side - problem solved. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to remove the handle. It goes through the door and has brass "buttons" that probably cover whatever screw or connector is used. Is there an easy way to remove the door handle and replace it on the other side, or should I get the bottom piece off instead? Thanks!


I know it's is going to be a tedious process to remove,clean, and replace bottom piece but I think that is what you need to do. Sorry I don't have a easy fix for you. Good luck and thank you.

Sterling shower door. May be at least 12 years old. Each door swings in and out and each side also collapses/slides in on itself. Kind of a bi-fold. Current Sterling line does not carry this model. Problem: The bottom right hand hinge has broken. It is a grey plastic piece that the frame sits on with a portion of the part exposed to provide a pivot point for the door. It is labeled E9883. I have searched all over the internet for the part. Sterling web site doesn't have much in the way of part diagrams. I can make this door as good as new with a new piece! Any ideas to source this part?


Start contacting Sterling distributors across the country. They may have that part laying around somewhere.

I bought a model 2221 peanut soaker tub installation


I just bought a 2221 Peanut which I am in the process of installing. I found it a very stiff tub construction, compared to some of the others I looked at.    We put it in with ledger boards on 3 sides as directed, took a fair it of time to make sure they took weight, and got a pretty solid installation: with about 500 lbs of people in the tub, putting up wallboard behind it, there was no flex, movement, or noise.  That's the same as one large person and 20+ gallons of water. More to the point--the installation instructions refer to low expansion foam, and say that it is not essential but may be helpful.  I still have access to the underside of tub through the plumbing access panel, and figure I can get some under most of the length of the tub anyway, JIC.
