Rough In Depths Correct For Tile


Ever had a situation where the plumber didn't leave the rough ins out far enough and after you tiled and left the job. Plumber had issues because the trims wouldn't go on.
I'm doing a custom shower and was looking at the rough ins the plumber did for the manifold and 3 way diverter. I got 2 walls tiled and came around the corner to end my day. Start there Monday and continue the last wall.
The blue plastic protective cover ring on the main controls is flush with the tile board. The divertor plastic blue protective cover is inset say 1/4" of the wall board. All waterproofed and ready for tile. I know its not my call and I'm just there to tile. Just looks odd. I never pay attention to these things. Just tile and move along. In the pic you can see the nipple sticking out for the diverter. I think they are American standard fittings. As a rule no matter what company the depths for rough in are the same when tiling is the finished wall. I attached a pic . Not the greatest. I wasn't taking pics of the plumbing when I took these. So I just cropped out the rest

Update
The plumber came back after I questioned the rough in depths. They moved them out an inch and a 1/4. All is good

Re: Rough In Depths Correct For Tile


my guess he had a 2x4 wall in his head for depth and it was a 2x6 wall.

There probably more truth to that then we think I had the plumber come in and finish off the shower trim hookups. Laid his tools inside the tile niche while working on the hookups and nicked the schluter metal.
