Question by EJ
Why do showers have to be drained with 2 inch, but tubs
can be 1 1/2 inch.I've been told,: its because of more constant flow to
shower,well i take a shower in my tub everyday! not only that: when the
kids get out of the tub ,they sometimes wash quite the glob of sludge down
that 1 1/2 inch drain: where the guest house (with shower only) doesn't
get all the mud and squished grime that: comes with small children or in
many cases pets! what gives? EJ
What gives! Why aren't all tubs required to be two inch? How come they're
only 1-1/2"? Have you ever had to snake a measly, tiny, smallish
little tub drain before. Man!! Don't even think about it! And when you
drain a tub when you're done with your bath. I can hear it draining in the
next room forever. I'd like a faucet that fills the tub in two minutes, so
that the tub is ready by the time I'm undressed. I can't stand waiting.
And when I want to drain the tub, Drain it man! When I turn on the jets, I
want the water to stay hot. Hot I said! I want that extra little in-line
water heater to keep the water hot. Hot, hot I said, not the creepy
lukewarm stuff you wind up bathing in. And when I get out the tub, I want
a mat to step on. Not that damned cold marble floor that I slip and fall
on! Dang! that hurts! When I dry off, I want that towel to be hanging on a
oil filled heated towel bar. I want that towel hot too. Damn hot!
Arrghh! I'm such a Mad Plumber!
