Hi: Up here on these cold winter days we need to something to keep us warm and get us out of the igloo. Here is what I have been up to lately.
My old shower and basin taps

My new shower and basin taps

The plumbing as I installed it

The brass fitting you see at the top of this pic is where the drop elbow is installed for the hand held shower hose.
[image]
While I was in there I installed some valves for the basin tap.
[image]
Now I can have a good shower and I can save water at the same time. I can also save water with the new basin taps.

The execution is great; looks like something I'd expect in one of those rolling hotels.
Did you pre-solder the connections under the sink?

Professional workmanship!

I've never understood why I have to adjust my shower with the lav-faucet [emoticon]
I suspect there will be a lot of copycats to this clever mod.
Nicely done !!

Not sure why. Even if they were inclined to do something like that, which I doubt, there was a working model in mine when it was up there several months back. The first thing we did upon accepting delivery of the TC was take Lance's 3 dollar pop up shower sink faucet and replace it with a dedicated bath sink gooseneck faucet, and add a shower only faucet to the side of the vanity. Works much better.

You and a few others have consistently pounded on the cost effective drum when it come's to TC's to the point where you've convinced me that if it adds another 10 cents in production costs, they won't do it.

That mod is more than 10 cents. [emoticon]
