@annb1997 I've been guilty of doing the same when multitasking.

@Dm Stan If there was a love button on here I'd throw your comment some love because I absolutely agree with you. Often it's tilers grout that gets stuck down the drain and the poor new owners have no clue until they use their shower and the water pools at their feet.

Never heard a floor waste being completed tiled over though. What a stuff up!! And an awful situation to face. Thank you for sharing your tip and word of warning for others.

Good grief @thesandmans! Not the sight you want to come home to. Glad it got sorted and that you're in a different property. DIY plumbing does often lead to disaster.. not for the installer but the next person who lives in the property. Sadly it's an all too common occurence. Thank you for sharing this and adding to the article - always buy watermarked taps and fixtures in Australia, not cheap imports that don't comply with our standards. Your unfortunate experience is a lesson for us all. All the best in your new property.
