    Remove old shower faucet

    My shower tub is leaking, so I tried to get to the cartridge, but am stuck on how to remove the cover/housing at the cartridge. I believe it is Kohler. The photos show the center, and 2 of the cover. How do I remove the cover? It won't budge. Thanks for any comments.

    Shower Drain

    Is it ok that drain seems to be a bit elevated? Water seems to sit around the drain for a few minutes and then goes away, is this a sign of a leak or are drains designed to work like this? Thank you!

    shower pipe drain placement?

    Hello, How important is the slope and placement of the shower pipe that leads to the main drain? An assistant plumber decided to route the pipe through the wall, rather than taking the most direct line, which would be from the shower drain to the main drain in a straight shot. When we asked...
