  • Thanks for proof reading your literature, Graff

    Got a call from one of my guys this morning about a Graff Roman tub infloor rough (G-1045) he's about to install. He asks me what I make of a on page cut sheet that shows the cold entering on the left and hot on the right. I say to give me the part # and I'll see if I can bring up the installation instructions on their web site. Upon doing so, I see the same sheet with the crossed waters. So, I call tech support and ask about it. First thing the tech guy says is that it doesn't matter. I say, it may not matter, or it may, depending on the handle configuration. He then admits that the picture is backwards and I say thank you and hang up. Meanwhile, my union plumber is twittleing his thumbs on the job. So much for keeping the stress levels (and BP) low today.

    Reminds me of a discussion I had with an inspector that turned me down because [he said] I had hot and cold reversed on the Roman tub. Hot on the left cold on right from the operators position. I understand that to be from INSIDE the tub.

    Right?... wrong?...

      What if the operator is out of the tub? You need to install one faucet for operation inside the tub, & another faucet for operation outside the tub. Atleast that is what you should of told that inspector.

      It is absolutely 100% for sure, hot on left & cold on right when inside the tub.

        I agree, but I have plumbed them the other way when it looked to me that the tub would generally be filled while the tub was unoccupied with the controls addressed from the outside.

            I've never had an inspector get involved in the decision but I ALWAYS ask the homeowners which configuration they prefer. Most say relative to inside. The customers also like offering input. Maybe it makes them feel like they are more involved in the process.
