INSTALLING WALK IN SHOWER TILE BASES OVER CONCRETE JUST GOT EASIER

Posted by on

Ok, I’m not a plumber but I know what it’s like to break up concrete. If you’re replacing, for example, a bathtub on a  concrete floor or a basement shower and installing a 1-1/2” tile base, your job just got easier. Try using  OS&B’s round SD470 (was SDB47) or square SD480 (was SDB48) 1-1/2”  brass side discharge shower drains and leave your sledgehammer in the van.  Every remodel job is different as we all know. OS&B’s 3-piece drains are designed to accommodate you on the job like having an extra-long ABS round thread-in flange for deeper installations and a reversible...

Not that I suggest greeting people in restrooms but perhaps a little more appreciation and understanding for cleaning staffs as they help keep us safe. Another aspect that I have taken for granted is the cleaning staff washing their hands as...

Handwashing is Key to Infection Prevention*

Posted by on

We’ve all heard about handwashing and illness prevention. Indications are that handwashing is becoming less important as COVID subsides. It seems critical to me that we wash our hands now more often to prevent infection. What better way to promote hand washing than a full, working soap dispenser? I recently was in a highway mega gas station and travel stop restroom and went from soap dispenser to dispenser until I found one that was full and working. Not only did I have to wait for other users, I started questioning: is it really necessary to use soap? I knew, of...
