OK…have you guys ever seen the shower stopper with the upper opening so you can actually fill the shower with water and leave it running without fear of it overflowing?
I had one and it never seemed to seal properly and always had to store it in a container. So I got to thinking and went to Home Depot and this is a little tool that can come in handy to check shower pans for leaks.
You can make this for a whopping…about $7 and in about 10 minutes plus silicone dry time. This was just an idea, please feel free to ctirique and upgrade.
Tools are a pen, scissors, Silicone caulk, a rubber flat drain stopper and 1 1/2" plastic flanged strainer tailpiece 6" long.
Mark the outside of the pipe with a pen (not the flanged side the thinner side). Cut it out with scissors making sure its as close as possible. To tight and it binds in the center and too big and it will leak.
Push the pipe through leaving the flanged part under the rubber stopper. Put silicone around the seam, cut the pipe to whatever height…I went with about 2.5".
Let the silicone dry…and BOOM…DONE.
I tried it out and it works awesome.
Just wanted to share in case someone else needed this.
