We're going to be doing a bathroom remod, including removing the current 'garden tub' that we never use and replacing it with a nice large shower for two. Two shower heads, independent controls, etc. Apparently they're all the rage these days.

But I'll have to explain it to my mom. :shudder:

Alone, 7-10 minutes. Some mornings, maybe less than 7, I never set a timer.

I have to wash and condition my hair every day. My husband takes longer ones than me, so if I am lucky I get 10-15 before the hot water runs out.

The water heater in our house is great and never seems to run out. 'Cept when my SIL is visiting; she takes 40-minute showers!

Do you have one of those handheld shower massage things? That could do it right there...

Yay! I just fixed the shower. No more plastic bag hanging out of the wall. It just works! Now I need to make an access panel door to cover the hole.

yeah. I haven't done a lot of sweating copper, but enough to make joints that don't leak. Even if they do look sloppy with lots of drips.

I put shut off valves in so that next time I can swap out the cartridge much more easily.
