Finished Basement Climbing Wall

Basement remodeling  – Add  a kids climbing wall
 
I thought this was a neat idea to share with everyone. We were finishing a basement in Dublin Ohio and the customer wanted to install a climbing wall for the kids. We left a section of the poured basement wall unfinished when framing and just painted it white. Using 3/4 mdf kids climbing holds
were mounted to the boards. The ones we used were 2’x4′ but you could make them any size.  The homeowner wanted to paint the boards and afterwards we mounted them to the wall. We drilled into the concrete and fastened masonry anchors to hold the boards in place. After everything was finished the homeowner installed mats on the floor in case the kids were to slip and fall. Its a fun idea for the kids on a rainy day and very inexpensive to do.

Do you have rough plumbing for a bath in your basement? If not we have an easy fix

Many people want to have basement remodeling done to add extra living space. Do you want a bathroom in your basement?  Many times what they find out is that the house they live in the basement was never roughed in for a bathroom.  Normally you would have to have your basement contractor or plumber jackhammer or saw cut the concrete floor to run the new sewer lines into the existing system and then put the concrete back.  Doing that is not only costly but its also very messy.  There are new systems that can save you money and spare you from the dirty work of tearing up the concrete.  The Saniflo Saniplus can be built into a wall cavity in the basement concealed behind the framing system.  The Saniplus is a system that is used to install a complete bathroom in a basement up to 9 feet below the sewer line, or even up to 100 feet away from a soil stack without breaking up the concrete. You can have a toilet, vanity, and shower unit all hooked up to this unit.

The Saniplus includes the macerating unit toilet tank and bowl but no seat.Since the reservoir, the macerating pump and the pipes are hidden from view, this type of installation gives you the lean and clean look of a European bathroom or powder room. The toilet uses only 6 liters (1.6 USG) of water per flush. The Saniplus is simplicity itself to install; there are just four connections:

  • The macerating pump is connected to the discharge pipe coming from the toilet.
  • The toilet tank is connected to the water supply.
  • The macerating pump is connected to small diameter discharge pipe work.
  • The macerating pump is connected to electrical supply.

If you want to conceal the unit in the wall you will need the extension also.

The Saniplus macerating system is comprised of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the stainless steel macerator blades and pump. To learn more about the macerating process please refer to What is a macerator? A normal operating cycle for Saniplus takes about 10–20 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.

You can find out other detailed information, specs, and other helpful products at Saniflo.com. If you are interested in purchasing one, Amazon.com carries both the SaniPlus Macerator Toilet with Elongated Bowl and the SaniPlus Macerator Toilet with Round Bowl.

Remember when doing basement remodeling always do you own research before choosing the products you will use and make sure that they are right for your job. If you need help have a competent basement contractor to help you with these decisions.
