Shower faucet. I have an old faucet in my stand up shower that pours
tons of water on me when I shower. It's probably 15 years old. In
another bathroom that was just remodeled, we installed the new
water-saving faucets seem to just leak water. Any suggestions on
faucets that allow me to be code compliant while at the same time
retain my bathing luxury. Just don't like the idea of spending a
lot of money on a bath remodel just to be peed upon by a faucet :-)
(2) Exhaust - This bathroom does not have an exhaust.. just an
openable window. I want to install an exhaust. Can I just connect it
to the the exhaust vent for the other bathroom or should this exhaust
be vented to the outside separately?
perhaps you can find another like the old one in a place that sells rehab'ed
stuff. go to a store that has a lot of heads already connected up so you can
see they work. in my area, large plumbing supply houses (not home depot)
have a booth with lots of heads set up that can be seen in operation.
no. you'll just be shoving the exhaust into the other bathroom. i've seen
fans that can go in a window, but how are you going to get power to it
safely though? it'd be better if you can put it away from the shower and
have a seperate vent (wall or roof, whichever is easier).
Remove the showerhead from the pipe that comes out of the wall. Inside the
fitting you should find a disk with a small hole in it. Remove it (it may be
a press fit) and you should see several indents in it that can be knocked
out to improve the water flow. If you want to use up lots of water for your
personal bathing, don't put the disk back! If you want to increase the flow
replace the disk with another hole punched out or the hole enlarged. Then
replace the showerhead.
