Fake Rock

Hello, I posted here around a month ago about making fake rock out of drywall mud. I did an experiment and I think it will work. I took the mud I purchased pre-mixed and did not dilute it. I used a picture of river rock and real river rock as guides to shape the "rocks". I did this on a sc...

RE: Decorating Wall Behind Fireplace

I think the best thing to do is a sample on a separate piece of scrap sheet rock. Shape the "rock" and let it try. I'll let you know how it turns out.

thanks,

RE: Decorating Wall Behind Fireplace

Thanks, I wasn't sure about the weight. It is good to know the wall can handle it. Believe it is 1/2" sheetrock. But I am still considering the cost. I may try a sample area with the mud and let it dry, paint it and then decide. A small area can be fairly easy to remove if it doesn't work out. ...

Decorating Wall Behind Fireplace

Hello, We have a free-standing gas fireplace that was installed last year. (used licensed contractor, took care of insurance) I would like to rock the wall behind it. It is a matte black and river rock would look pretty good. However, the cultured rock is not cheap and fairly heavy. There is a possi...

RE: Hot water heater question

Thanks for the responses. I did a little more of a search online and one site says to open the pressure relief valve in order to properly drain it. Archie you noted the safety valve check- maybe that is why not too much water came out? The heater is working okay-4 years old. No problem noted at this...

Hot water heater question

:lol: Hello, I did a search and did not see this topic. As part of seasonal maintenance I decided to drain the hot water heater. Just somewhere sometime I had heard that this makes it last longer. Okay-this is a 40 gallon Satellite sealed gas hot water heater. Procedure: I shut off the water at the ...

RE: shower head

Thanks for the response. The shower arm that comes out of the wall does not seem to be plastic. It is a very lightweight metal, maybe aluminum. It doesn't sag or anything with the new shower head on it so maybe it will be okay. I just don't want it to damage any plumbing in the wall. What a nightmar...

shower head

:roll: Hello, I posted a time or two on the previous forum and have not had another question until now. I haven't gone through to figure out the profile-home is 4 years old and has PEX plumbing. 28 x56. My question has to do with shower heads. We replaced the original-which weighed almost nothing-wi...
