Luckily this time went a little better! We had a super leaky shower-head, and J really wanted to see if he could tackle it himself. Between him remembering how the repair man fixed it last time, and him going on Youtube finding some helpful videos..HE DID IT!! And he did it without drenching himself or the bathroom! Success!
When a shower head is leaking it is not the actual shower head but the pressure balance cartridge that regulates the water. So J set out to replace it. First turned off the water to the house and drained the pipes by running the faucet and shower. This is the step he forgot last time :)
Next, he removed the shower handle (tiny screw underneath) and circular base that hides the pressure balance. Lets ignore the hideous ring of crap from where it was:
This time his plumbing project went far better than last time. Yet, I prefer the fun we had when he was screaming from the shower while being pummeled by a water stream :) I think Braylen would have found it humorous as well!
