Fella complains that every time someone uses the bathtub, water comes out of the downstairs half bath vent. Suggestions that two can shower at the same time in same water do not have traction with him.
Tub above the half bath backs up to a closet (thank goodness!) but there’s no access door so gotta cut one to see what’s going on. (This is what the backside of your tub looks like) Yup… dark stain from the pipe going to the tub faucet shows signs of a leak.
Take off the pretty chrome faucet cover/shower diverter.
Put all that to one side for a minute to take this picture. Not sure what the allen wrenches are for.
Put on a new thing-a-ma-bob that connects to the chrome thing and put it all together.
Instead of calling a wall man to patch the hole I made, put in a cover that can be easily removed to get back in if I did something wrong….it is in the closet after all but not ugly even if in the dining room.
