my new word for the week

What the heck is a "intersticial space"?:laughing:
that is a word you use to baffle the customer and make
what you are doing look more complicated and important than it really is... "intersticial space"........
it makes me feel smarter just saying it....

he could have just said "the living room ceiling" but
you got to give them a "dog and pony show" .....



actualy while watching the video it really looked like his test plug was not
holding the water, looked like the water passed right down the drain to me...

So, I wonder who is trying to screw who here????

I see, so you are saying that a fully inflated test ball in a brand new line is leaking water and not only leaking but leaking that fast? Simply brilliant.

I moved the drain from the old tub location as well as installed the new shower valve. I came back to put the trim on the valve and when I turned on the valve to flush the shower riser and shower arm out, the drain.....didn't. When I walked down stairs to tell the HO about it I see a waterfall coming out of the light fixture. Unfortunately, by the time I got back from the truck with the video camera the water feature was almost over :laughing:.

I'm not taking sides here but something is screwy here. The water does go down the drain, so why would there be a place for the water to leak out if it's running down the drain? If it's not leaking past the donkeydick then there is a problem with the drain fitting connection right? If it was the pan wouldn't the water be leaking out around the outside edge instead of down the drain? From what I'm seeing it has nothing to do with the shower pan.

Basic shower pan set up:
So how is the water that's flowing DOWN the drain ending up in the living room caused from the shower pan?

you can clearly tell that the bubble or white thing going in circles is above the test ball. You can cleary tell it is above the top of the drain. If the ball allowed water to go down the drain that fast the test ball would not stay that high in the pipe. There is no way it's going down the drain.

It's leaking between the bottom of the pan and the top part of the bottom flange. It will do that if you don't seal it with something. Here we must put silicone between the two.
