If you are OCD, like me, you may have noticed that something else looked different in our tub.
The drain you see here is not the one I posed about here.
Why not? Because that repair that I crowed about was pretty short lived. It stuck for maybe 9 months. And then I shelled out my good hard-earned cash to Kohler for a whole new drain flap thingy. Yeah. And paid a plumber to install it.
And then, in round 2 of our plumbing woes, see here and here, the guy just recommeneded we replace the entire, wonky, weird, clog-loving drain apparatus with the standard issue kind. I was so tired of plumbing issues I said "fine, just do it." And for like 60 bucks it was over. Just over. It's not all sleek and inset and such, but you know what? It holds water when closed! It drains water when open! These things are not to be underrated!
