So Close, Yet So Far Away
Sure, it looks like a proper, functional bathroom, but it isn't. Or, it is if you don't mind only having cold water at the sink. Personally, I like the option of hot water.
So, what is wrong? Christmas Eve day found me installing this stupid sink. Everything went fine until we turned on the water. Our hot water shut off valve (not the connections) leaks. Scarlet and I tinkered with it, we tightened nuts, and we (actually that would just be me) used our best four letter words and blasphemous epitaphs, but the leak merely slowed. It only stops once the valve is shut completely off.
Since we were expecting company for the holidays, we did the only thing we could. We blew the bathroom up with a few well placed sticks of dynamite and called it quits. Screw that.
Okay, we tired a rag around it and just ran with it for a couple of days. I'm really glad we have a tile floor.
In theory, we'll be replacing the valve and messing with some other crap this weekend. Then, maybe then, we'll have this . . . bathroom working.
