I posted in here a few weeks back regarding the tosser of a plumber who
let a rad drain into a brand new downstairs ceiling. Well, I fixed that
up (with advice from in here) but now he's caused worse devestation on a
different part of the same ceiling. The Bastard.
Last night I took the new shower for a maiden run, which was great until
0825 this morning when I started work on the room below. Wet cracks
across the ceiling with a run down the wall.
If I'm very lucky, the monkey didn't tighten the joints at the mixer
unit on the shower wall. Easily remedied.
If I'm not, then he didn't check for a bad joint on the waste (which
runs through the ceiling rafters below). I'm not really happy for the
search to be conducted from above since it'll meen ripping
out/disfiguring a brand new installation to get at the waste connection
under the tray.
So I've resigned myself to holes in the ceiling followed more than
likely by a re-skim of the whole ceiling after the leak is found.
But here's the best bit. I later discovered that the vinyl floor in the
room below has about half an inch of water under it for most of it's
area. What do I do?
In an ideal world I'd lift the vinyl, remove the water,dry and re-lay.
But I wanted the skirting on after the flooring for cosmetic reasons and
there's also a load of intriate boxing that will have to be broken out.
Do I dare leave it to disappear of it's own accord and will it wreck the
flooring material ( top-notch green-treated with bonded Kingspan on the
reverse side)? 'Til I check with my builder tomorrow I'm not totally
sure what's underneath that but I think it's concrete.
As a side query does anyone know how long it takes to acquire a shot-gun
