a tap helps me learn which way is up
I'll expect to be testing the new improved bathroom over the next couple of days.
As I predicted, we had the comedy moment during the testing of the squirty switch. There were only a small number of positions, but the instruction leaflet didn't bother to mention which pipe shot water out and which way was off.
A small game of 'trial and error' ensued which was made extra special by the change from one type of tap to another.
The original control taps provided were more angular but didn't have an obvious pointer end. Their substitute replacements did, but created a strange effect of not knowing which way was 'up'.
Yes, I was caught standing in the shower holding my thumb over a small pipe whilst a two bar pressure pump blasted water all over me.
We live and learn.
I now know which way is up.
