I tried to order direct from Dri-Dek yesterday, but they want you to order at least 12 squares. I ordered from HRPWorld.com tonight for $27.00 total.

Harold: How did you remove and reattach the little fish?

Sam:

Did you try to order just four tiles from DriDek online or by phone? It's been more than a year since I last ordered from them, but I ordered online and I think I remember some sort or "minimum order warning" popping up, which I ignored and the order went through.

As for removing the little fish, the answer is VERY CAREFULLY. As soon as our new trailer was delivered, we knew we did not want those fish on the floor, but were hesitant to throw them away. So, I very carefully peeled them up, tearing only one. Since they were fairly new they had enough adhesive left on them to stick to the wall. The artists in my family told me there should be an uneven number, so I called Casita to see if I could order more. I was told they had discontinued using fish and none were available. The four remained on the wall until the decor scheme was changed and now the fish have gone to the fish tank in the sky.

Harold: I tried to order only four squares on line. It let me order them, but the next day Dri_Dek called on the phone and said the minimum order was twelve.

I found Dri-Dek in white and blue available from West Marine. If you're close enough to a store you can either go in or call and have them ship it in for you. It's $6.79 each plus tax which is pricier than some online suppliers but no shipping and no minimums. That works for me since we're within about 15 miles of a store in Dallas.

We have a tiny leak in the vanity water supply line - about 1 tablespoon a day. Not enough to be worth fixing but just enough to provide a surprise when you step in the bathroom barefoot. The Dri-Dek looks to be the easiest solution to the problem.

ok part two..

from the side that was cut first , measure 22" to the other side and mark.
( note.. you could run 22" the other way but the look would be off , the function fine. ).
(note the center X is 11" doing it this way )
see drydek4.jpg

this is what you should end up with
22" X 25 " retangle extra parts show for clarity. dridek6.jpg

some corner rounding may be required..
I have many large pictures of this if interested PM
me with a email --terry

That's how I did it five years ago and repeated it with another set of tiles when the interior decor changed.

Trimming from both sides leaves you with the tiles centered and the drain in the middle.

You photos will be helpful to those who are planning to do this mod.

However, since working with these tiles can be confusing, I believe it would have been best to have kept all of the photos oriented in the same direction. In other words...all taken from the same angle without turning the project.

"How to make mountains from mole hills"

It's Dri Dek Rocket Science =

You start with four tiles snapped together forming a 24" X 24" mat. You trim ONE inch from one side and ONE inch from the side opposite where you just trimmed. You snap ONE of the trimmed away pieces to ONE of the untrimmed sides. BINGO, you have a new mat that is 22" X 25" and another piece 1" X 24" scrap to toss.

Your are now a DDRS. :rolleyes:

The Spousal Unit made it even simpler after pulling the mat up a few times to clean the shower pan - she pulled the 1" wide piece off and hung it on the garage wall - reasoning the mat really doesn't have to fit perfectly and 22"x24" was "good enough"!

Okay, USBURROS, [Harold] today my Dri Dec shower flooring arrived. A quick review of your "down to basics" directions, made installation a snap [no pun intended].
Thanks for reducing the directions to something I could easily use.

Dri-Dek is available from Gemplers in Madison, WI (www.gemplers.com) for $5.80 each. Six (6) colours available.
I don't care for Dri-Dek so I made a shower platform from cypress and gave it an oil rubbed finish.
