Installing Bathroom Fixtures

Project: Waterfront Warehouse Rehab, Episode 9, Part 3



Stone and tile specialist Nick Tagios returns to install the countertop on the kitchen island in the penthouse apartment. Tagios takes us through all the steps of bracing and epoxying the Pietra Cardosa marble surface.

Next, Bob checks on the trimwork being done in the back bedroom. Bob also looks on as the sliding closet doors and shelving are installed.

Finally, work is also underway in the bathroom, and Lenora Campos from Toto is on-site to show off the new fixtures that are part of Toto's Mercer suite.

Part 3: Installing Bathroom Fixtures
Bob meets with Lenora Campos, from Toto USA, the largest toilet manufacturer in the world. Campos introduces Toto's new Mercer line of residential fixtures that draw from 19th-century design, while incorporating softer contemporary lines. The toilet uses only 1.6 gallons of water per flush, as required by code, but the company assures that it's truly a one-flush toilet, thanks to Toto's patented G-Max technology. Roger, the plumber, gives do-it-yourselfers a handy tip: To make sure the toilet does not rock, use plaster to attach the wax ring and toilet to the tile.
Bob Vila heads to the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, for this project involving an abandoned warehouse built in the mid-19th century. Bob's adaptive reuse will yield three ultra-hip apartments with commercial space at street level. Project manager is Bob's oldest son, Chris Vila, who helps guide this complete rehabilitation of a beat-up building in the city that never sleeps.
