Shower me with praise

Tonight I repaired something.

Sort of.

Our guest bathroom shower water would only get warm and never hot. I talked with a couple of friends and got some advice. They made suggestions and steered me in the right direction, but weren’t spot on, so I did some research on-line, found a youtube video of a man dismantling and repairing the same model unit as we have, and I did what he did.

A few tools, some WD-40, a little cursing and some forehead sweat and 1 hour later I had dismantled the system, adjusted the water temperature valve, replaced the shower unit and – VOILA – hot water!

I am on such a high and have sprained my arm patting myself on the back. I feel like freakin’ McGuyver! I may have to go buy some camouflage and hit a strip club….woof!

I am a D.I.Y. Homo-owner…hear me roar!

    I love being able to repair stuff, it’s a great feeling. And remember you just saved at least $100. So if you give yourself a $50 treat, you’ve still saved $50.
