Thank you. That does make sense to me. This one won't be inspected as it is only a temp fix to get me along until the big job gets finished and if we end up moving before then, it will be easy to disconnect, cap the pipes and take it down before we show the house.
What I am missing (I think) is the flange part to attach it to the blocking. I don't remember buying that when we got the rest of it. I thought it was going to be a that weekend job since it was so simple, but everything is still in the lowes or menards bags now over a year later.
I don't remember if this one has a tub spout on it or not or if I got just a shower faucet. I do remember looking at some and thinking about using the tub/shower ones to have a fixed rain shower head over the middle of the tub and to use the tub spout to hook up a hand held shower to it.
What I wish would get the okay from Her who must be listened to, is to cut into the pump lines from the tub and hook up a hand held massage shower head to it. Would be nice to use while sitting in the tub with the jets hitting other spots to use it to hit the neck or upper back since the jets in the tub aren't high enough to get those spots very well.
Your hands shake, my legs shake if I stand a bit too long...we would make a good pair trying to do it.
Mostly I just supervise and advise my Wife and a friend while they do the work. Most of the time they listen pretty well as they know I have normally read up on whatever project we are doing to get enough knowledge on it that I can tell them all kinds of information, just can't get into do it myself.
