Love to see you helping out getting things done for your folks. Done many such jobs for my parents over the years and now it’s nice to have our kids helping us. It’s what family is all about. :-)

Insulate the bathroom exhaust pipe in the attic space. We didn't and when the hot air flowed up it and hit the cold pipe in the winter...we got tons of condensation running out of the exhaust fan onto the bathroom floor. You live. You learn.

Just curious as to why the tile guy didn't put that water tite material on the durock? It's to water proof it. Also did he chalk the tub to seal it? Also that gap seems a bit narrow for the size tile being used. The old tile had a bigger gap then the new tile. Did he grout the gaps? Hard to see on the video. Hope it works for ya.

You should be using insulated flex duct for the fan. No Red Guard for the Durock? that is just an accident waiting to happen unless you are using a foam board like Go Board or Kerdi

From what I've seen of American wiring jobs it's the guys who don't record their work who are doing all the damage.

I'm surprised thermostatic shower valves are not that common in the US. Always a nice 38℃ / 100℉. No manual mixing of hot and cold...

If a cartridge is not mixing cold and hot, most of the time it is the cartridge is upside down.

My Beagle will have NOTHING to do with the shower when it's running. She will not even come in the bathroom to drink from her bowl. (We have one at each end of the house. Spoiled dog.) That water pressure is worse than mine. Is there a valve not opened completely somewhere? Better get that Yanmar and find it.

horror, bright illustration for the phrase "contractors from hell". Thermo isolation with all this mold and all the holes is not changed, no water isolation under tiles which is a guarantee for new mold and rotting wooden walls behind. Absolute horror... My condolences to the authour of the video...

Unfortunately the cement board hasn't been sealed properly. Eventually the tiles will start falling off as the grouting absorbs water and gets through. One way round this problem shower would be to remove the standard grouting ( when it starts to deteriorate) and replace it epoxy grout.

Plumber should had checked his work and known that the cold water was not mixing. Same everywhere, plumbers and AC guys are not very competent. Always looking to charge more for sloppy work.

A note on the Moen Posi-Temp cartridges, you may be tempted to save approx $10 by eventually getting a DANCO cartridge at Home Depot/Lowes - but - stick with the genuine Moen stuff. DANCO cartridges always seem to leak/drip after about 6 months like clockwork.

@Andrew Camarata most buildings here are made of stone, concrete and steel. Like since 1900, it's cheaper, stronger and more durable than wood. Greetings from Germany :)

@Andrew Camarata nah I meant those black spots in the insulation. This looks suspiciously like mold to me. I mean, all the insulation in the attic is clean in comparison. Btw make sure to get an even more elevation on the duct in the attic, they way you layed it it will collect water since the air is cooled on the way up there's a lot of condensation. Best to add a dip somewhere right behind the fan and make a hole into the duct to get the water drained somewhere :)

You have that weird oil on your fingers and on those parts and you’re letting your dog lick them, then you’re drenching him in water and he’s not even taking a bath. I had to get off this channel. I was getting irritated.

Everyone blaming the contractors he hired but it looked like he was trying to cut costs left and right. Didn't want to pay for the demo, didn't change anything unless necessary such as tub, insulation, tub drain finishes, GFCI. My guess is he asked for the cheapest install (and quickest 🙄), he's lucky the tile layout wraps the corners and is coped around the tub.

12:40 It looks like you don't have a conditioned attic there and you didn't insolate the vent line so in the cold days warm moist air will be traveling through that pipe and will condensate on the inside and water buildup in your vent line.

12:19 that duck tape will hold for about 2 years they you will start venting into the attic and question why you have mold up there. Use proper silver duct tape. The only place you should not use duct tape is ducting!

Most building codes require that the venting only goes up and out through the roof. Moisture from the shower will develop in the flex tubing when it's laid across the insulation. But when you are in the country and working on your own place or your parents you can get it done any way possible.

Done a 100 fans my man...your exhaust line needs to higher than the outside vent or the humidity and water from the shower will collect in the low point if you vent hose and fill it with condensate water....other than that, great job!

After you've grouted melt some white candles in a pan and with a small brush paint all the grout with the melted wax. It soaks into the grout and makes it impervious to water.

Our bathroom like yours has no window. In the vent fan light we installed a 40 watt led bulb and never turn it off. It's good to go into the bathroom in the middle of the night and not have to worry about being able to see. The light lights up the hall way as well.

I'm a 100% Andrew fan, and I know that hindsight is 20/20, but I think I would have just rebuilt the stems on those faucets and diverter, and regrouted and resealed the tile. You could even replace the faucet set from behind rather than all this. Man, oh man. That's sad.

Your plumber was at fault in this situation I see that he sweated the valve in without pulling out the part you replaced. Basically he melted the internals of that valve!!!!!!! He should have known better!!!!!

I have tried venting to a existing vent like you did before. Depending on what way the wind blows the moist air will end up in the attic and make it moldy or frosty in the winter and it can melt and look like a leak on a warm day. The last 10 or so I have installed I use a roof vent with the proper size flange to hook the pipe to.

Plumber likely caused the problem by sweating the copper line with the mixer valve with mixer installed (threaded mixer does not require sweating anything.. You fix it Andrew and yes you could have done the tile work just fine....
