Can you guess from the title that after all the inspections and County approvals, the shower won't drain.
Something plumbing happens on new construction inspections more often than I can mention.
Certainly one of the things during a new construction inspection is to see if all the plumbing works properly.
This is the master bathroom shower stall.
I ran the shower for a while, along with the other components, all at the same time.
Doing that not only tests them for function, but also the water pressure.
In this case the shower did not drain.
So I left it for a long while.
Coming back to it well over an hour later the water level had not drained a bit.
So I turned the shower back on and snapped a photo.
No draino. That's perfect Spanish.
The smiling, yes-man supervisor has been there every day; the County put its approval sticker on the panel box; the cleaning crew obviously turned on the shower water to clean the walls and floor. And yet it does not drain.
So what to do? Fix it!
My recommendation: you must insist on new construction home inspections. You will appreciate having a professional look at your house. Really appreciate it.
