  1. Hahaa... initially I had started a community blog but then decided a T-blog here seems more fun as the useful input from people (who are more experienced than I am when it comes to home renos) is more instantaneous and that would really help to guide me along in real life as I'm battling through my crazy renovations. So... here's the story. I had initially set out wanting to DIY my bathroom renovations. I had lofty ambitions of doing it as I'm in a 'transition' period at the moment so have some free time on my hands to, err, do something with my hands. Also, my budget is(was!) very small... I was only able to afford to comfortably fork out $3k max for these renovations, which I reckoned would mostly go towards the materials and only in the case of really needing the professionals to do stuff I really knew I could not do (i.e. plumbing and waterproofing) would I use part of that small budget I had squirreled away for engaging them. I am very confident in my own dexterity and my skills; on top of that, I am also someone who never ever thinks anything is beyond learning and doing. I was adamant I neither wanted to use an ID nor a contractor, as I have done some brickworks and other cementing work before in my life. Plus, I've been spending the last few months watching Youtube videos so am now suitably qualified as an armchair contractor! However, after several heated arguments with my parents (neither of whom was forking out a single cent for this reno), I gave up and was forced to engage 'professionals' for this job. I calculated, albeit naively, it would cost me 'a bit more' than my initial budget, probably in the region of $4k, which from my extensive research was a general estimate for most bathrooms. I thought that since I simply wanted a very SIMPLE and industrial theme, it was not at all like all those expensive showy bathrooms with gold taps and other such nonsense. I mean, my name doesn't start with TT Boy was I wrong. And stupid/naive/egotistic/narcissistic to not have seen this from the start! Sure, some of you are saying "If you don't have money, why waste it on something so useless and impractical as a bathroom renovation?". I know we don't spend most of our time in the bathroom, that not everyone who comes to the house will use the upstairs bathroom and besides, here's the funnier thing-- I don't even live in the house! But. Sadly, I have always hated my family house because the design, colours and funishings are so puke-worthy fugly. Every time I use the bathroom (and I don't even go back that often! Like once every 3months??) I am reminded of how it looks worse than the kampong toilets I've been to in my lifetime. Kampong toilets are actually decent looking, even though they aren't too hygienic. Anyway my bathroom is so fugly until I cannot stand it. I don't know what Keppel was thinking when they built the place-- was the designer a 5000yr old Englishman stuck in delusions of the 17th century? It's that bad. So, anyway. The fact that I was so adamant to do this is testament to my deep hatred for the bathroom, and to the fact that I'm not doing this to 'show off' to people but instead this is a real personal issue I have with the bathroom. I want to go in and feel "Ah...such a nice, clean, modern bathroom. I feel so relaxed, happy and peaceful...", not "OMG this place is so fuglyyyyyy, this would be the perfect place to hang myself in!". Basically too much of the spaces I do use when I go back are very shamefully fugly, and such an eyesore especially when nobody bothers to take care of anything. It's bad enough that fugly is not something you can wash away with bleach... imagine fugly and years of willful neglect. So I decided to take remedial action as soon as I had saved up enough. As a result, I am now almost $8k out of pocket as the cost of this g-**** reno keeps escalating by the day. And when I say I really, really, really cannot afford it, I mean it. I'm not one of those people who always claim they're broke but in their bank accounts there's enough money to feed the entire continent of Africa for a week. As an entrepreneur, I have no savings. Zero. The first time I saw more than 2 zeroes in my bank account was when I was 29, when I got a good project that paid well enough for me to save a little rather than live from hand to mouth. And now, because of this bathroom reno, I am back to square one

  3. Good day everyone. I got a big big problem and need you guys for suggestion. Just done my renovation work early this year, have been staying nearly 6 month. However lately I discover that my bottom kitchen cabinet is leaking water. Checked the cabinet and found out that the water waste pipe had some small leak. And for god know it has been how long. So I called my ID and ask him to check what wrong with the pipe. My ID came down with his plumber and carpenter to check out the leaking problem. Now the nightmare begin. Plumber claim that the pipe he connected "HDB provided drain pipe" is defect which is not his fault that the water leak. And push all the blame to the HDB contractor. So my wife went down to the service center and find their site supervisor. Unfortunately, the site supervisor doesn't know anything about the waste drain pipe thing and cannot determine whether its their problem or not. So he went off and make a appointment for us the next following day. Since my ID carpenter is around, I asked him about the cabinet. Told the carpenter about my situation about the leak and the water has already contacted the wood. Right now the wood has turn moldy and black. Will it damaged the wood or not . He replied, " Yes the wood is wet but it won't damage the wood all you need is to wipe off the moldy part and dry out the wood it will be fine." I was very shocked to hear this. From what I know once wood contacted with water for certain time, it's as good as damaged. From this point, I got nothing to argue. Plumber claimed that it's not his fault and carpenter said that the wood is fine. So they left. Following day, service center plumber came. I explained to him the situation and told him what my ID plumber said. He laugh off and told me that my ID plumber has done the wrong way to connect the pipe. HDB provided the pipe for the basin BUT they don't do the connection to the drain pipe When my ID plumber fixed the sink pipe to the HDB drain pipe, he DID NOT EVEN GLUE THE INNER PART OF THE PIPE which caused the leak He showed my wife how the leak caused. And he effortless just pull out the pipe and it's seem like it wasn't glue at all. Which looked like a cover cap to the drain pipe. Right now my wife is damm piss off regarding about this matter. I hope you guys can give me some suggestion and help me out. Sibei heart pain Kindly refer to the picture attachment. Maybe you guys can share your drain pipe picture with me and see whether is there any problem with my ID plumber. Any professional advise would be really appreciate.

  8. Like any other plumbing fixture, septic tanks also require maintenance, care and attention by homeowners. Many people are unaware of the need for care for septic tanks. Hence, a detailed systematic action plan has been discussed below to help homeowners in maintaining their septic tanks in the best manner. If the following guideline is used, then the requirement of a plumber can be reduced. Guidelines for care of a septic tank include: · The very first step is to understand a septic tank properly. You can either talk to a plumbing contractor for a proper explanation or use the internet for detailed information about the kind of septic tank you have. The septic tank is used to clean water that consists of solid waste and scum. · The second step is to make sure that the septic tank is given enough time to separate the waste from the water. If the tank is not given enough time, the waste will not be removed properly. Hence, one should conserve water as much as possible and watch out on the consumption of water in the house. Faucets should not be left open, other fixtures in the house should not be leaking, high efficiency fixtures should be installed, all the laundry should not be done in one day and must be distributed over the week. · The third step is to avoid the placement of heavy objects right above the tank. Things like pool, cars, cement and shed etc. should be kept at a distance. · Markings on the ground above should be made to make sure that the growth of trees does not affect the functioning of your septic tank. · Chemicals and other non-biodegradable things such as plastic should not be flushed down the drain. Some of these things include, diapers, tooth picks, feminine products, cigarettes, litter of any sort, tissues, gauze tape, paper towels, condoms, paint, grease, and bleach. All these things tend to interfere in the effective working of the septic tank. · Households with septic tanks must never get a garbage disposal. The drain field can clog due to the garbage and cause a serious problem. · Pumping and cleaning of the tank should be done periodically. Certain factors upon which the pumping depends is the number of people in the house, the amount of water consumption and the size of the septic tank. Plumbing service is required for the purpose. ____________________ Please share your experpice with septic tanks Thanks Visit at - Los Gatos Plumber Plumber Los Gatos

  11. Hi everyone, I just removed my W.C. because it was leaking, and now I'm looking for a new one. I need an S-trap type. However, most of the ones out there seem to specify 150mm distance from the back wall for the waste exit. I've measured my hole (not mine specifically, but the one for the W.C.) and the centre of it seems to be 130mm from the back wall. I've attached a pic. Does anyone know if my hole is weird? Would a 150mm toilet fit?
  12. Hi bros and sis, i am here to share a electrical and plumbing service provider, i recently renovated my house in seng kang, i have my own ID to do up my carpentry and tiling works, as for electrical and plumbing side, i really have to share and recommend sparkflow electrical and plumbing, their workmanship was up to my expectation and their cost may not be the cheapest but they are able to deliver everything in time.. called them 2 times to come up to touch up some minor issues and they were ok and responsive ( i think local service provider are better in terms of coming back to touch up stuffs compared to those contractors from jb... heard alot of scary stories about them...).. The best thing i like is every quote were broken down individually and official receipt were given and and warranty also! =) i got their contact through a old classmate of mine.. if anyone need can try approaching them. my service coordinator was Roy 91 05 01 66

  15. hi guys, would any of you have any good suggestions to lower the water pressure into our unit? I live in a condo and I think the water pressure is way too high coming into the unit. The condo water riser only have a flow reducing valve, but that doesn't stop the water pressure from building up when no one is using. it's evident that i keep getting leaking bidets, leaky faucets, and i have some wooden sidings that seem to have water seeping into it. I read that i can use a water pressure reducing valve? is this a common problem that most plumbers know how to address? thanks for the help!
  16. Anyone here knows what the estimate for replacing a leaky tap? The screw securing the tap is all stripped. Also who know were to get the plastic gaskets/liners edging glass panels used in showers? No luck finding them so far. Thanks. Kenneth
