Default Floor sink replacement

Started out as a stoppage, ran the cable and felt it going in the dirt, time to bust out the floor sink. Removed the sink and trap and replaced both. I cut the new tile with the grinder so don’t talk too much crap.

You did the tile? If so a question for you.

Day 1 concrete
Day 2 tile
Day 3 grout???

That's a really nice job you did there!


Also, you call that a floor sink? We just call them floor drains.

Yes, I cut the 45’s in the tile pieces with a diamond blade on the grinder. I set them in some fast set concrete. Floated in pre-mix grout from a tub.

nice clean job, I wonder how much clobber was poured down that drain to dissolve the no hub trap...

I'm not 100% sure, so then if you set the tiles in fast set concrete then all the tile and grout done in one day?

yes....an hour for the tile and cement to set , then just grout..
when I do shower body replacements I use quick setting thinset for setting the tile then in less than an hour I can grout, complete job done in 1 day...
