He TRIED to TILE his own SHOWER!!!--- WHY it would HAVE FAILED

Jun 02, 2021
Hi, I'm Isaac Ostrom, thanks for watching another of my videos today. I am privileged to be here with Chris. He owns a house and started doing his own project. He started building a

shower

and had some problems and then called. "Yo, so he works here to finish what he started. Chris, you made some good progress. There are some things you did very well. There are some things that probably weren't done as well, but it's very common. I mean, there's a lot more than you". You've probably figured it out and you can learn a lot from videos like mine.

You

would

also watch some of the sales videos, yes, and you

would

watch the sales videos to sell to the boss. He has a great channel. If you want to learn things he has. great content there, i think you said you saw their video on floating the pan, yeah, so we'll start with the positives, the pan you made is really good, I mean, I check it out, I put levels on it, it slopes right, it's well waterproofed and looks great, but Chris, why don't you tell us a little bit about where you started to see some problems?

More Interesting Facts About,

he tried to tile his own shower why it would have failed...

Yeah, I was trying to install the plumbing, so I started, you know, probably in the middle. than it was, I should know that more start lower, but anyway, as I went up I was using leveling systems, but it's just not level, it's very difficult for me to do it in tiling, that brings up a good point, so that just because you

have

leveling. spacers doesn't mean it's going to make everything really easy and I'm sorry to accept that, that's great, yeah, I mean it was. I mean, maybe I'd do two lines at night or something after my day job and it was just painful, so we got the plumbing.

We moved in and we moved and it's been about a year, okay, and that's when I found you on YouTube. I was looking at you and Salad getting ready to try to finish it, yeah, and I saw where you were located, like hey, wait a minute, yeah, it's not too much. So far, let's get it straight, you didn't do the job right, so yeah, that's how I contacted you for the leveling clips. It seems like he had a hard time getting it out, so yeah, you can see he broke inside, which is which. You know one of the things about leveling clips that a lot of people don't know about is how hard it is to get them out if you

have

a little bit of thin film on them and inside of them they're going to break and then? you're trying to mark them and with marble, as you can see, I even have a couple of small scratches, it's very difficult to get them out, the other one, a razor blade or a buzz tool or something like that, especially if it's marble, so none of Both affect this title, yes. and then you also had an arch on this wall, yeah, so we'll get the Lugg lot and see how that looks, but yeah, if you have leveling clips that won't make everything perfectly flat, it'll basically keep the

tile

s that are next to each other of the other in a plane with no itchy lips, but they could still make the wall do all kinds of weird things, besides the curb you mentioned, you weren't sure how the curb was built, yes, there are two of them. bodies forward and my night works well and I think there are layers on both sides.
he tried to tile his own shower     why it would have failed
I just don't remember if I put plywood on top, yeah, because it feels a little soft, so we'll probably open this up and see what's underneath, but Yeah, we're going to turn this into a beautiful

shower

for you and we'll take it from here . In fact, we're going to float the walls. First let's repair what we need to repair. all with Ardex 8+9 we're going to float these walls to get a plumbing floor and then we'll install the marbles so yeah you're in good hands now Chris yeah thanks yeah no thanks problem okay here come on. I've got my six and a half foot stability here and if I put this on this wall you'll see where it got into trouble, so I'm out of plumbing here, but you can see I'm pressing there. see how big the gap gets and then if I push down here you can see how big the gap is and see how big it gets up here, that's why I suggested we float the walls because what a lot of people don't realize Realize is that Yes, Kirti, you don't have to float, but you end up fighting against it when you're doing the installation.
I would prefer that with the prep work everything was plumb and flat and I know what wedges can do that too, but even if you get wet. Chambord and put it here, it has all the band, it has everything that happens on top of that, which throws it back from the plumbing, so let's go to this wall here and what it did was you just have I have a bunch of layers. from Kirti and believe it or not, you can end up with a lot of construction. I think we have almost a quarter of an inch of construction.
He has forbidden hair. A corner here overlapping another corner here. A band here and then one. another overlapping sheet so there's a lot going on here and so what were you when we floated? this wall will be plumb and flat, ready to then set up Taiwan, he's got the city, he's got some bubbles again, this is just building, it really bothers you when you're selling

tile

s, so we weren't going to float these walls. This is what we would have been fighting against when trying to do the installation. This just doesn't work. It's too much to deal with.
We're just spreading butter. You've got a good Steve, he's fine, so again, he made this pan himself, he made a clay set and I told him I started with the positive. I said, you know, you did a really good job on the tea shelf, but in the pan you got a good flow of water, it stayed very consistent all the way around. See, I lowered my level and again washed Sal's video and did the perimeter all the way, levels bubbling right in the middle. We had a good fall. We had a good fall going in. the drainage here so I'm really happy with how he did the pan but look what you did on the bend here this was one of the red flags well you know we really need to do something here on this bend yeah Push it in let's see if you can bring it closer to Steve, maybe at an angle like this so you can see, yeah, so I don't know if you can see this, but I'm actually pushing down on the top of the sidewalk so that the top of the sidewalk is too soft we got some spots yeah it's all here we'll just take about five more minutes ok so I need that dense shield thank you oh yeah and that she's going to be the champ thank you so Steve , let me show you this. so here's a really critical part of the waterproofing that I don't think he did a very good job on.
We've got loose kirti here, the big Kirti bubble here, so there's no coverage under that, so I'm going to cool this down and look what we have under here, it looks like it's good, that Kerdi board is fine, so yeah, maybe I used the Kerdi board. I don't know why it feels so soft, although look, look at that movement we have here, so let's see. look what's going on down here, so it's just a half inch Kerdi board, but I wouldn't trust this for the top of a curve and it's probably what caused the bubbles and stuff to come up, when things move like that and they're soft, it's just half inch Kerdi board, but look how much compression Kerdi board has.
I really think they need to fix it. Your board has so much flexibility. I'm going to try to get a cross section so it looks like I would make a curve and ran it with Kirti straight to the wood, which you can't do, you can't put Kirti right on two-by-fours, it has to be drywall or board. of cement, yeah, Steve, some if you get a View of this right here, this angle right here, you can see the compression on this board in a cross section a little better, so this is how much elasticity there is in that board. , but it is not so good where things are going to step and things are going to be. perforated on this is not good, so what we're going to do is we're going to take this off of Steve to take the top off, we're going to put our dent guard here and then we're going to wrap Kirti back over it so we have a nice solid surface, not this, not this foam so there you have it stay tuned for the next video we'll show you how we put this together again if you don't like your job if you feel like your job is restricting you if you can't be creative if you can't build maybe you need to dedicate yourself to construction if you know someone who doesn't like their job share this video with them thanks again for watching the guys rock.
I love it. I love being your mosaic coach, see you in the next video.
