Bvplumbing
I am hoping someone can help me. We just replaced the old plumbing in our shower. The plumber installed the new piping, etc. We had a carpenter come in to put up the wall and tile and now the faceplate (I think that is what it is called) is not flush to the wall. What are my options? I don't want to have the wall taken down again...

I appreciate any advice you can give me.

Some shower body's will allow for misalignment Others have to be right on the money.

Is the wall plumb?

Was the shower body installed knowing the FF measurements?

Yes, the wall is plumb. I have to admit that I have no idea what FF stands for?

Rather then saying finished wall it was my mistake BUT FW would possibly be more confusing.

The shower body should have come with roughing in measurements with a min and max.

The FW is also shown on these sketches.

Yes, I would have still been confused with FW. Well, the plumbers are going to come back to see if there is anything that they can do. Wish me luck!!! I appreciate your help.

Ask the plumbers if the shower body has an extension as some companies expect plumbers and carpenters to not boter to ask questions prior to the installation.

I once had to contact a manufacturer as the origional plumber installed a gang of showers for a health club and the dry wall guy did not talk and the FW was 4" more then it should have been..

GOOD luck and feel free to contact me any time ..Sylvan
