    You bet - will snap some pics when I unpack it next weekend. It's a fairly benign looking toilet from what I saw in the showroom. Not sure how much I'll like the seat. When we bought our Kohler...

    I swung out and picked one up. Like you say, it's hard to argue with the toilet / seat combo for $199. Even walking into the showroom the 'special' price on the floor model was $350 so I'm not sure...

    I'm in the market for a new, 'comfort height' elongated bowl, 1.3 gallon per flush or better toilet for a cottage I just bought. Water supply is intermittent as the cottage is off-grid, so I...

    The little knee wall / whatever you want to call it behind the tub is not full of insulation, only the wall behind it. The hot water has been in use multiple times daily up in the bathroom with the...

    And I'm in Toronto, where the coldest it has gotten is about -15 celsius outside at night. This is not abnormal for us in a given winter.

    Here's the thing - this one line supplies both the tub and the shower with hot. The shower runs fine. It branches off perhaps 2 - 3 feet from the tub shutoff, in the floor.

  12. Total and complete mystery - suddenly NO water out of hot supply to tub

    I re-did my bathroom about 5 years back, and the kitchen immediately below the bathroom 2 years ago.

    Everything has been fine for years. Good pressure both hot and cold.

    It is a console sink, with polished nickel legs etc, and while...
