I would change it out. What brand is it? My plumber lectured me for buying an off brand shower faucet and tub drain and made me return it for a moen.

fwiw i usually just cut the quick connects off and simply use worm drive hose clamps....the ridge on the fixture will ensure that the thing will NEVER come off as long as you get the clamp above it.

someone i know had messed up one of those fittings once and was devastated because they would have to replace it all...i said "what?"---"just hose clamp it"

the look on his face was priceless.....its funny what manufactures try to get you to believe.

Nothing much has been happening as I have gotten back to work places to go and lawns to mow One benefit is I now have the cash spigot turned back on and can now buy all the materials needed for the bar & theater

I will have to snap a photo of it as all the lines on the faucet are like 1/4" plastic tubing.

A shameless bump to keep from falling into the Dept's of our busy DTD&C forum

Work has been killer the past month with only a few days off and I feel that the heat of summer is coming to slow things down some. Not much of anything has been done on my build but hope to get cranking again when I get some weekends off from chasing my mower around town

nothing wrong with the self bump there. You have a great build thread with excellent details of your work from planning up to now and many great pics to 'inspire' the rest of us. Not sure you'll keep up with the Shawn/Queen/Jamis crowd updating your build with your work schedule ;^)
Keep up the good work and picture those new 'toys' all this mowing will bring you.

There builds are pretty much done I have at least another year of posts before I'm done. Maybe longer
plus my wife and I went over to her boss's and checked out there new house and there master bath and walk in closet is bigger then some apartments the thing is huge the closet could be a small bedroom. After seeing this she now wants to gut her new 4 year old master bath and reconfigure it with a super large walk in shower and get rid of the corner whirlpool bath that she has never used and just takes up a ton of space.

Toys I love new toys work work work. winter will be here before you know it

I always wonder about those corner whirlpools. It seems like every new home going up in town has them and they take a ton of water to fill them, kind of like a mini hottub. Imagine you had a hot tub and you had to emtpy it out and refill it every use! Plus with a hot tub you might sit in it for hours, with a bathtub who is going to sit in the thing for longer than 20 minutes or whatever?

I've got one in my bathroom and I've used it twice in the four years we've been living here.

Thank God I didn't upgrade it to a higher end model like the wife wanted. Oh yea, she's used it thrice (3 times).

I used my tub... um... never. So when I built a house I put in only 3/4 baths... the Master with 2 showerheads though. The girlfriend has a nice whirlpool tub and we've used it, um, once... 5 years ago. We make LOTS of use of the 2 headed shower. (TMI, I'm sure) Tubs? No interest.

I never used my tub either until recently. My almost four year old likes to do "pool parties" at bath time. Takes forever to fill the thing and you gotta make sure nothing else is running in the house.

I'd take a shower w/jets over it anyday.

Ah, the things we share here at AVS.

For what it's worth, we also have a huge corner whirlpool. I think my wife has used it 3x. It literally takes 20 minutes to fill up...and it uses all of the hot water.

I don't know why they put these huges things in there -- they are expensive, take up a lot of room, and are rather useless.

Now THAT's a great idea! I tried to put an outdoor shower in for the dogs and the inspector wouldn't allow it! Well, it goes back in once I get finalled.

My wife and I are currently have an offer out on a house and it has a whirlpool tub (one of her house requirements) I don't care much for them since its just another thing in the bathroom to have to clean. So I will see how much she uses it. I just don't see the point by the time you fill it and get in the water is going to be cold. I would rather have more room in the shower and cabinet space in the bathroom and due with out a whirlpool tub.

Whirlpool tubs are alot like fire places everyone wants them but then never uses them. We didn't have any fireplaces installed when we built our new house and we even got about $100 bucks off our house insurance for not having one.

Me too! New house, I designed it, no fireplace. Not even a wood-burning stove. Glad to hear someone else thinks the same way.

I think if our fireplace had gas log instead of real wood we might actually use it. But who knows, maybe we still wouldn't. Definitely never buying another house that has the old school wood burning though.

Just wanted to say that I read the majority of the many pages of this thread and I think that it was inspiring on many levels. So much time was put into discussing craftsmanship and technique without getting carried away with marketing, buzz words, and technological fads. I helped my parents build a stage for our rear projection tv years ago and I thought the idea was silly. Little did I know I'd be pouring over pictures and comments on the same topic later in life hoping to do the same myself. I have so many questions that I don't know where to begin (I found the thread by clicking a link in a signature) so I figured I'd start by "waking up" the thread. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the discussion. I plan on posting in this thread again soon!

Yep, feels like we hardly even had a summer. Doesn't bother me though, I hate working in the heat outside. Sounds like from your post you must provide lawn care for a living?

Could anyone point me in the direction of some posts explaining the logic behind the riser being decoupled and the staging being filled with sand? Reading through these posts made it seem as though it was just accepted practice that everyone understood, but I couldn't find any links to the info behind the decisions. The search feature would work for this to some degree but you folks are much better filters for good/not-so-good info on the boards. I appreciate it!
