Almost freaked out

79 safari
Well, My bathroom restoration was completed this past week- new subfloor, marmoleum, doors, shower fixtures, restored sink and tub, paint, stainless accents. Everything back in and caulked and looking pretty. -About 5 weeks of work and more money than I would like to admit.

So I nearly had a panic attack when I discovered a drip coming from the belly pan just underneath the shower and holding tanks. Checked all the lines that I could actually visualize under the sink and closets only to find nothing. I began to visualize my brand new floor getting soaked under the shower and what kind of time a fix would entail. I entertained the notion that I might have a roof or window leak that was allowing water to run down the inner skin. I even listened to the belly pan with a stethoscope to try and pinpoint the drip. Every possible reason for this leak was bad, and I was dreading the conversation I would need to have with the wifey explaining why our first rally would have to be placed on hold.

And then... the clouds parted... and the sun came out. Behold, the water pressure regulator!! Dripping into the belly pan. Sweet, merciful airstream gods. I shall not curse you again!

While packing the Airstream, my wife notices the drip , now coming from the regulator release hose fed through the belly pan and asks "Should that be doing that?" I put my hand on her shoulder and say, "yep".

If you can, post some pictures of your completed project, and of course the drip tube is a must

Here are a bit of the bathroom refurb (after) pics. The stainless is a little dirty around toilet. (I was still working on it the day the photo was taken)

Thanks. Actually, the sink bowl came that way. I ordered it on ebay, and it is a silver color. The original one piece vanity/sink was in terrible shape, and the plastic around the drain was really thin. I cut out the old sink bowl replaced with the new. Feels a little more substantial now.
