Replacing your old or outdated bath waste trim with a new one can be a simple DIY project that significantly improves your bathroom’s appearance. TrueBlue Bath Waste Kits make this task easier for beginners.

The kit includes all the necessary components, such as the top overflow elbow, bottom waste shoe, faceplate with a screw-in retention nut, and low profile dome stopper with a spud. The trim kits come in designer finishes, including Matte Black, Chrome, White, Brushed Nickel, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Brushed Gold, and Champagne Bronze.

Installing a New Shower Drain

If your shower drain is not working correctly or is starting to show signs of wear and tear, installing a new one may be necessary. It is required to apply a plumber’s putty or silicone to create a water tight seal around the flange before beginning the installation process. Opting for the Oatey No-Caulk Shower Drain ensures a hassle-free installation experience.

It’s important to note that Oatey No-Caulk Shower Drains are designed explicitly for preformed shower bases and unsuitable for tiled shower floors. If your shower base is not preformed, Oatey offers alternative shower drains compatible with your specific requirements.

Installing a Toilet

Replacing an old toilet can appear intimidating, making it a project for which we recommend hiring a professional. However, if you’re feeling confident and up for the challenge, there are affordable products and online tutorials available from Oatey that can assist in making the installation process more manageable.

When removing the old toilet, Oatey’s LiquiLock solidifies water in four to five minutes, helping to prevent drips and leaks. To repair the toilet flange, which secures the toilet to the floor, you can use Oatey’s Fix-It Repair Ring. This product allows you to fix broken, cracked, or worn-out toilet mounting flanges without replacing the entire flange. Watch a short video to learn how to install it.

In addition to the Fix-It Repair Ring, Oatey provides supply lines that ensure easy on/off operation for controlling the water flow to the fixture.

Replacing a Bathroom Vanity or Sink

When replacing a bathroom vanity or sink, the first step is choosing a new one that fits your space and style preferences. However, installation can pose a moderate challenge. Nevertheless, with the right tools, patience, and a good understanding of the project, it is achievable for those who are handy and willing to educate themselves thoroughly on the process.

Cosmetic Changes

For those looking to make cosmetic changes to their bathroom, adding an accent wall or applying a fresh coat of paint can be fun and straightforward DIY projects. Selecting the correct type of paint is crucial; opt for a high-quality, bathroom-specific paint that can resist moisture and humidity to ensure the longevity of your new look. Additionally, installing new bathroom lighting fixtures can dramatically change the appearance and ambience of the room.

Installing a New Exhaust Fan

If your bathroom exhaust fan is malfunctioning or needs an upgrade, consider replacing it. However, it is important to note that replacing an exhaust fan involves electrical work, which can be complicated and potentially hazardous. Therefore, we strongly recommend calling a professional for this project.

There are plenty of bathroom projects that DIYers can tackle with confidence using Oatey products available in retail stores. However, calling in the professionals is sometimes the best choice for safety and practical reasons. Always research any project beforehand, and don’t hesitate to ask for help!

Happy DIY-ing!
