    Re: shower head extension pipe

    The original shower head is high; I've never seen a shower head that high. It's so high there's no way to get away from the spray. It's a pain to even reach and adjust it because it's so high. And...

    Re: shower head extension pipe

    Now, that looks exactly like what we're looking for! Kind of interesting that that coupling is $38; wonder why that is.
    Anyway, that looks like it.
    Thanks a lot.

    Re: shower head extension pipe

    That's pretty much what's already there, built-in. We're trying to get it to be about 6" lower than that; an extension.

    Re: shower head extension pipe

    There already is a handheld, which doesn't fix anything; the pipe is too high and putting a handheld on there doesn't make it any lower.

    Re: bad GFI or bad appliance?

    Well, replacing the GFI didn't fix it. The pump ran twice and the second time it just didn't sound quite right. Then the third time it tripped the GFI.:mad: I am just overjoyed at the thought of...

    Re: bad GFI or bad appliance?

    Okay, I hadn't thought about that. But I know they do it with TVs and such, so it makes sense.
    I'll give it a shot.
    Thanks

    Re: bad GFI or bad appliance?

    Well, I'm confused. I called Graybar and asked if they had GFI's that were better than I'd find at a hardware store, and the office guy that answered said, "Sure, we have several brands that are...

    Re: bad GFI or bad appliance?

    Okay, guys, a new GFI (or 2 of them) it is.
    I'm always kind of leary of these things; about 20 years ago I came home from work and smelled smoke. It was coming from the GFI in the bathroom and there...

    I have 2 GFI's that are tripping on me and I'd like to know if the problem is most likely the GFI or the appliance that's plugged into it. Specifically:

    Well, I'm not sure if this is the right forum but there doesn't seem to be an obvious choice.

    Re: Nothing works against this mold

    Keith, there is a very pricey commercial product (Don't have the name in front of me.) that can be applied to wood. Kills the mold and soaks in to keep it from coming back. Do you know if this is the...

    Well, there's another problem: The nut won't tighten 2 whole turns! I get it about 1 1/2, and that's as far as it will go. Now I'm stripping the edges off the nut trying to get it to 2 whole turns!
