Probably NOBODY on the Friday of Labor Day. With company coming early next week for a couple of days, I’m trying to put together a guest room and one of the upstairs baths – you know, new magazines, new sample size bottles of shampoo and body wash stolen from hotels, ironed sheets, clean glass, bottle of water, flowers, kleenex, scrubbed tub – the whole ten yards.
Only one glitch………
That is the extent of the water pressure in the tub. The sink is fine but the shower head and the tub faucet, well, let’s just say it might take a long time to get clean with two drips at a time.
I have two choices. Move the company to another guest room and bath upstairs, meaning starting all over (ugh), or trying to self-diagnose the plumbing problem.
This bathroom is on the FIRST to destruct list when the upstairs of the house is renovated, but for now, it lives in all its sorry glory, to be used only for guests and children coming home for a night or two. The kids don’t complain because they usually get a home cooked meal to make up for the lousy shower pressure, but company, I’m not sure I can say with a straight face just an old house with old plumbing!
To Swanton’s suggestion, I took off the shower head, no problem there and it’s a relatively new shower head so no corrosion either. I can’t figure out how to, or if I really want to, take off the tub faucet, so I will close the panel back up, start all over with another guest room and bathroom, scratch off the other things I had on my to-do list for today and bang my head slowly on the floor.
I couldn’t find the buzzer for the super.
