Innovative Plumbing Fixture Hack

No Bueno

Can you spot the fix?

When we tested this gorgeous brand new tub filler, there was a problem. Instead of gracefully dropping into the tub, the water crawled along the bottom of the fixture and headed for the wall behind it. No bueno. (see first video)  No one wanted to junk the very costly fixture, so a fix was required. Jesse fashioned, then welded a little piece below the filler to redirect the water. Once that worked correctly, he patinaed the piece to match. The second video shows the fixture working correctly.
