Looking for Japanese Soaking Tub plans

I'm thinking about building a Japanese Soaking Tub when I remodel my bathroom this Spring. I have a general concept of how it should be built, and I'm thinking I'll probably go traditional and use cedar to build it. I'm looking to see if anyone has some good build plans for a soaking tub, specifically how to seal the tub so the water stays in the tub.  I tried uploading a picture to give you some idea, but it doesn't want to work, here's the link of the style of tub, first picture. source: http://www.homedit.com/deep-soaking-japanese-bathtubs-turn-bathroom-spa/

How to remove thinset from an enamel tub floor.?

Crappy contractors made a mess of a tile job and allowed thinset to fall into our tub and dry there.  I was able to scrap everything off, but there has been this grey haze on teh tub floor between the raised grippy bits.  It looks like the tub is always dirty.   I've been generally annoyed with this for years...well now we are selling and need to take action. I have tried: elbow greese scouring powders CLR Was wondering if I could use phosphoric or HCl on it.  I used phosphoric before to remove haze from unsealed ceramic tile.  Your collective wisdom is greatly appreciated.

Bathtub installation question Answered

I'm installing a new soaker-style bathtub as part of a bathroom renovation.  It is acrylic, and is designed to fit into a cutout.  That is, there is a tiled space between the lip of the tub and the tiled walls around the tub. I bought the tub on sale as a demo model from a home store (Rona, kinda like Home Depot), and as such it came with no installation instructions.  I couldn't find them online, and I wasn't able to get any help from the manufacturer, either.  Perhaps I need to pester them more. Anyway, the issue is this.  On many similar tub installs, I've seen them layer up mortar under the tub for support.  However, my tub has two wooden rails (2x3s) permanently fiberglassed to the bottom.  In addition, a very dense hardboard spans the entire bottom of the tub.  It really seems as if the tub is designed to be set on the floor just like that, perhaps with wood blocks screwed in around the edges of the rails to keep the tub from shifting. I can do that if that's how it should be done.  I just don't want to risk cracking the tub with hundreds of pounds of water and human - my wife would not be pleased, nor would I.  Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing?

I am willing to use any microprocessor or even modify an existing device to fit my needs. The commercial versions are a little pricy for my budget.

What would be a good material to line a hot tub with?

      Im working on building a hot tub near my house. Its going to be a pit with a layer of mud, clay and hay for some insulation as well as a solid wall for the tub. Now im just looking for a material for a lining on top of that. I've looked at cement and epoxy resins which both look like a tricky and expensive way to do it. Now im thinking I'm going to have to just use some plastic like visqueen or something but I'd like to see what the great instructable community has to brainstorm on the matter.       One thing to be taken into account is the fact that im building this hot tub 300 yards up a mountain so whatever materials I use must be able to fit in a 4X5 cart. I have pulleys and things to make weight not too much of a concern. Thanks for your help guys!

DIVERT EARWIGS FROM WHERE WE DRY OUR HOT TUB SWIM WEAR ?

Basically wife and I enjoy an evening hot tub dip, under a deciduous tree in a large garden. Then with robes on we drop the swim wear and hang it on a wall of our house to dry. The next morning my wife usually finds a resident earwig in her swim suit. I can only surmise the larger one piece suit holds more attractive moisture for the bug which would have to travel five feet up a newly painted lap siding wall to reach a pot-metal dual hook.  There are no night lights. We live at 5500' in a desert climate and the garden is automatically watered morning and evening three times a week My wife wont let me put a 24 volt charged tape because we watch grand children daily.

Leaking PVC Soil Pipe

The PVC soil pipe under our bathroom has developed a slow leak. This pipe is inaccessible as it runs under a platform that lifts the bathroom above the concrete floor of our enclosed garage.

K'nex: why have they got it so wrong? Answered

Lego used to be great, but now all I see it "special bricks," you know, things like the plane sets! I mean, you may as well have one big brick in the shape of a plane. Anyway, I was on the K'nex site to buy some parts for the SRv2 after watching Lowney's video (was a bit sceptical of the 500ft claims at first but was sold after seeing the vid) and I wanted one of those big tubs. BUT SHOCK HORROR! These tubs no longer exsist: they are full of stupid "Knex Bricks" and "Knex People" and "Flexi rods" and "plates". Who needs them? All I need is a tub with basic bricks. And dont even get me started on the car sets. So why did they go down that route? It sucks.

Tips to mod a single basin kitchen sink into a double-basin?

Greetings All, I have a largish single basin sink in my kitchen. I don't have a dishwasher, and I find that its easiest to do dishes with two basins - one for washing, the other for rinsing. I beleve this is also an efficient use of water and energy (to heat the water). Since I rent, I can't replace the sink itself, which is the most direct solution. I have tried using various tubs and buckets in the sink. To date I haven't found any that work well. Usually the geometry is all wrong. The bucket is either too small to be useful, or too big to fit in the sink. Or, the shape of the bucket or tub makes an awkward fit, and won't lie flat, etc etc. My dream solution would be to make a custom tub whose outer dimensions match exactly one half of the existing basin. Ideally out of pliable silicone. Is this feasible? THanks!

Thermal Paste

Hello, I was wondering, if you had tubs of high temperature thermal compound, would putting it on your stove-top (flat topped stoves, not the ones with the coils) before you cooked let your stove be more efficient? Other than the fact that I don't know where you would get high temperature thermal paste that could withstand your stop-top and the fact that it would probably ruin your pots, pans, and stove, is it possible? I wonder because I just saw my tubs of thermal paste sitting there and then went inside to cook something.
