Q & A - Baths and Showers / Shower lining
« Last post by CharlesK on September 02, 2021, 12:06:58 AM »
Hi, our 60's house has a built-in shower, concrete walk-in floor and is lined with Seratone which hangs down about 15mm and is proud of the wall so makes a good drip edge. This was all fitted 6 years ago by a local builder but the lower edge of it is all now rotting. Another builder has been to look and suggested that we just reline it but use some stuff called 'showerline' which is faced with aluminium. The shower is 1200 x 900 and three sides are clad, the fourth is open with curtains. Now, the question is that this second builder has quoted us $4000-5000 to remove and reline and we wondered if this is a sensible figure? Also, is the suggestion of this new material a good one? What is the inside part of it made of? ie is it the same as seratone? Views would be appreciated.

Kia ora all

Looking for advice regarding a wetback hot water cylinder install - HWC in question :

There is only around 1250mm height space to install the HWC (with 20mm copper to bottom)

Is this doable?

Thank you

Are practitioners participating in the Boards and Governments activities and what is the incentive to participate? It seems more and more practitioners are turning their backs on the regulation of the industry.

Did you ever notice that as we get more legislation and regulation imposed on us, we simply accept it and take the added burden? As time goes by and it happens continually it becomes the normal but with anything - if you over burden it, it will break.  You may find this view interesting.

My case was nothing short of a corrupt witch-hunt, with huge clashes (not just conflicts) of interest...for something I had spent 6 years warning about.

This then begs the what context does a present day perpetual board stand with historic corruption???

Perpetual in my mind means that the present day board inherits the past actions (good, bad and indifferent) of that PERPETUAL board???

The boards prosecution processes are very poor. I have my own experiences there.

Well its been 12 years on the 9th April and still no one has been held accountable for a near fatal gas explosion, with a plethora of evidence ignored. Just remember that every time they pontificate about safety.
