Home Improvement Questions? Ask a Handyman for Answers
Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue.1. You can have an insert installed in the tub but you'll need to hire a tub refitting contractor (like Bathfitter) for the job.2. The underside of the house needs to be enclosed. Mobile homes typically have a fiberboard enclosing the underside holding the insulation in place. You could have a carpenter or even a handy man do this. 3. You might be able to use an iron cartridge type filter if the iron particles are large enough but most of the time you'll need a water softener to remove dissolved iron. Call a water treatment company for a (typically free) water test4. You might be able to comb out the fins and it will improve the operating efficiency of the unit. 5. Any roof boots that are damaged should be replaced.
Do you have an idea of how much the tub and shower would cost if we use a company like bathfitter?
Not offhand. Your best bet is to call and get a quote. One other much less expensive option would be to have the tub refinished by a company like MiracleMethod.
Will they be able to remove the coated iron stains.
It depends on the extent of the damage. There is no way I can tell from here. You can ask them for an assessment before you commit to anything.
Do you know by any chance how much it costs to replace a boot on the roof and a small plastic skylight.
Probably a couple hundred for the boot replacement. The skylight is something you'll need to get a quote on after an onsite assessment is made
Thank you for all your help. It is greatly appreciated. If I may, we are trying to find the water line that leads from the well to the point of entry in to the MH. Where is the most typical spot we should look for it. Kitchen, bathroom , etc. ?
You're welcome! There is no typical spot. But it should be obvious if you get under the MH and look around. It may be in a small enclosed area under the MH.
The pipe have to be insulated. Sometimes it's boxed in a small enclosure
