I purchased the Wedi Tub Surround Kit. It came with a mixing valve flexi collar and a flexi-collar sealing tape. I can’t find any instructions for installation of these two items. I really don’t even know what the one is for. Can you give me step by step instructions? This is my mixing valve.
These are dumb questions, but I don’t want to mess it up. Why do you cut a square if it is a circle? Is the rubber gasket supposed to fit inside the square? The circle is larger than the square. Am I supposed to cut the square bigger? I used/traced the guard as you did in the video. The circle does not fit inside.
The collar is designed to keep any water that may come behind tile to divert around the collar and continue down wall
You can cut the square around the delta valve plaster guard. Or simply discard the square plaster guard and cut a 3″ circle. Either way, I’m pretty sure the square plaster guard has to go to all the collar to sit flat against wedi
These collars are kind of overkill. I’ve never had an issue with water getting behind valve trim without them. Really up to you whether you even want to bother….
They are part of the 10 year warranty for wedi though
