    Thanks, dj2. Bone dry outside after that test. I did have a little rusty water on the inside floor earlier, and the joint from the P-trap to the wall was a little damp just now. I'm thinking that was...

    The strange thing is that the upper coupling is wrong (no band) but it's not leaking, whereas the lower coupling is right (banded) but it is leaking.

    Terry, do you mean chip through 3" - 5" of cement slab so I can replace that lower fitting? Or is it enough to replace the upper fitting if the lower is not obstructed?

    Thanks for your reply.

    You're saying the only inexpensive alternatives are lead and plastic? What about brass, iron, steel?

    The Grohe units at Lowe's definitely felt more solid. Unfortunately they only stock chrome...
