      Did the installing person have the decency of
      1- Securing the shower body properly like ANY Master/Journeyman plumber would?

      2-Did the installer bother to DISASSEMBLE the plastic parts PRIOR to soldering.

      3- Did the installer bother to TRY to get a flow rate ( Velocity) to prevent hydrolic shock and possible errosion of the piping system?

      4- Why didnt the Installer recommend a Symmons / Powers OR a Delta Anti scald Pressure temperature balance?

      5- Did the installer flush out the lines properly?

      Did the installer allow for expansion and contraction of the hot water supply piping?

      Yes answering questions RE piping sight UNSEEN is a challange HUH?
