Plumbing update (Updated!)

El Plomero has returned and is currently ensconced in the POS master bath (which is the most ridiculously designed, inconvenient space in this house... e.g. you can't shut the door if you are already seated upon the throne), and is banging away merrily at the old-ass fixtures.

Seems the problem was that the fixtures themselves are old and leaky and that's what's been causing the problem, drip by drip, for years.

Now perhaps I will be able to enjoy a tub bath without accompanying rain shower during the fill period, as until today (and the new fixtures) I could never switch the diverter completely to tub.


Update: Done! Ceiling downstairs to be fixed next week sometime....

Sound like our older pre-1940 bath in the back of the house. My grandson just took his nightly "shower & bath." He spends an hour in there with some contraption making whirlpools. He has it now perfected that he can have a small boat ride the sides of water as it rides to the bottom. Oh, to be a kid again!
