My mom used to bring well water back from the lakehouse for rinsing her hair; installed a shelf for those blue 5 gallon water jugs, which weigh ~40 pounds. It seems you have a 2.5 gallon bucket, with a handle that will put the weight out at least a few inches (more like half a foot, plus). I would not do this. Perhaps a hook in the ceiling or on the wall? ...

It is hard to say without opening the wall you may have a metal pipe coming out of the wall and PVC or CPVC, copper or Galvanized pipe. With galvanized pipe it might be strong enough if the pipe is strapped to a stud but you would be taking a chance.

safe to use the shower is a relative question. when will it be safe to use it so that its use doesn't compromise the caulking seal? never - it was already compromised the moment you did it that way. caulking shrinks as it dries, and the speed at which it dries changes how it polymerizes. when you make a huge blob of caulking, you seal in much of the ...

Answer: there's no way to tell. Caulk isn't meant to fill large gaps (more than 1/2" is one spec I saw, and even that seems wide to me). Even if you waited long enough for the caulk to dry, it's quite possible that the caulk will fail due to the stress of stretching across that gap.

A set of new seals and possibly springs may tighten it enough to stop the drip, The big box stores Cary kits with different sizes some times they are color coded to size, there are at least 3 different sizes that I can remember, or you could pull ...

You can fill the gap with sealant, then let it set (which might take longer than you think, even a day or two) before doing the actual seal. For the one where the sealant is failing, there are two main causes - either it didn't stick very well in the first place or the two sides of the seal are moving apart (hence the advice to fill a bath before sealing ...

Short answer: He/She may be correct but ask them what problems they forsee running into that made them decide that. Long answer: This should be possible but I'm not sure it will be visually appealing and you might have problems finding a premade pan that fits your space. You may also need to redo the drain plumbing since fiberglass pans have standard ...

Your question-asking and diagram are great! Unfortunately, i can't fully conceptualize it right now (too hungry), but I hope this post gives you helpful info re: wall height. Here's a pic of my parents' shower stall, which we designed together: I hate curtains and convinced them an "open concept" shower would be cool. They planned for a full-height glass ...

It's actually a Danze. I had to replace mine as my hot water would not shut off. After alot of investigating and calling different suppliers ex: Moen and Delta, I was directed to Danze 1-800-487-8372. I sent them a picture of the cartridge and it was theirs.
